Investigation and pending class-action suit against American Honda Motor Company, Inc., alleging that Honda failed to warn owners of the popular GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycle about a flawed design which puts riders at risk of crashing.
According to the class action complaint, Honda's GL1800 motorcycle has design defects which cause the vehicle to wobble at low speeds, and that while Honda is aware of the problem, it has failed to warn riders or fix the problem. According to the class action complaint, riders report that the GL motorcycle can begin to sway and oscillate at speeds between 25 and 40 mph. In those occurrences, the motorcycle becomes more difficult to control which can lead to accidents. When at least one consumer complained to Honda, the company responded that 'the wobble is not a defect but a characteristic of the Honda 1800,' according to the complaint. Allegations against Honda include violations of unfair competition law, untrue and misleading advertising, violations of consumers legal remedies act, and breach of express and implied warranties.
The proposed class-action suit includes all persons residing in the United States, who purchased a GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycle manufactured by American Honda Motor Company, Inc. since January 1, 2001.
