Weil Quaranta McGovern Sues Nissan North America over Pathfinder Transmissions

Weil Quaranta McGovern has filed a federal class action lawsuit in South Florida against Nissan North America alleging failure to warn consumers about dangerously defective transmissions in 2013-2014 Pathfinder vehicles. The suit alleges that, on acceleration from 15 to 30 mph, the vehicles are subjected to unexpected shaking and violent jerking preventing the vehicles from accelerating. The suit alleges that Nissan concealed and knowingly sold and leased vehicles with the dangerously defective transmissions, and through its dealers failed to honor express and implied warranties to repair and replace the dangerously defective transmissions. Instead, the 77-page lawsuit claims, consumers’ complaints were delayed, deflected, and ultimately denied. The Consumer Class Action Complaint seeks damages in excess of $5 million, injunctive and declaratory relief, and punitive damages for claims of breach of express and implied warranties, violations of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and violations of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act.
