The owner of the Maryland GV80 claims that driving 40 mph causes vibration, tremors, and crossing the road.
June 13, 2021 – A class action lawsuit against Genesis GV80 claims the SUVs vibrate, shake, and drive across the road while traveling at moderate speeds.
The lawsuit alleges that the 2021 Genesis GV80 SUVs suffer from drive shaft, axle and steering issues. The class action lawsuit states that consumers paid more than $ 70,000 to purchase or more than $ 900 per month to lease the vehicles.
For this price, the SUVs shouldn’t suffer from uncontrolled swerving while driving.
Hyundai reportedly knew the Genesis GV80 vehicles were shaking, shaking, and vibrating, and in June 2020 the automaker stopped selling the diesel-powered SUVs due to engine vibration issues. But, according to the plaintiff who filed the Genesis class action lawsuit, Hyundai never fixed the instability issues.
The Maryland applicant, Dr. Barbara Feinstein, rented a Genesis GV80 2021 for more than $ 900 a month in February 2021. When she rented it, the SUV had driven approximately 107 miles, and a few days later the plaintiff and her husband departed for a 1,100-mile trip to their Florida home.
The class action lawsuit alleges that the Genesis GV80 “began to shake, shake, vibrate and pull dangerously to the left within hours of driving, resulting in an ongoing battle to keep the SUV from deviating from the road.”
Plaintiff says she was traveling about 40 mph when the problems occurred and when she reached Florida the plaintiff took the SUV to a dealer.
Under the GV80 class action lawsuit, the plaintiff was notified that something was wrong with the SUV and a rental vehicle would be made available while the dealership was checking out the Genesis vehicle.
The dealer allegedly said Hyundai Corporate was involved in the attempted repair to replace an axle, causing the plaintiff and her husband to fly back to Maryland without the Genesis GV80.
In Florida, the dealer allegedly repaired the vehicle and said to the plaintiff: “The problem was solved and the car ran great.”
Hyundai arranged transportation of the GV80 from Florida to Maryland, but the plaintiff says the vehicle shook, vibrated and pulled to the left as the GV80 reached about 45 mph. The vehicle was taken to the Maryland dealer, who reportedly said the GV80 needed to replace the driveshaft.
The plaintiff picked up the SUV after replacing the drive shaft and aligning the vehicle. But the Genesis GV80 allegedly pulled further to the left, there were vibrations in the steering wheel and headrest and the SUV shook while driving.
May 2021, the plaintiff left the GV80 again at the Maryland dealership, later the plaintiff was informed that a new tire had been ordered for the SUV. When the class action lawsuit was filed, the plaintiff did not yet have the GV80.
“Combined with previous periods of service, Plaintiff was without the SUV it leased for over 38 days during its 82 day lease. To this day, the plaintiff remains without her 2021 Genesis GV-80 SUV to her great disadvantage and inconvenience. ” – Genesis GV80 lawsuit
The class action lawsuit alleges Hyundai rushed to market the Genesis GV80 vehicles in an attempt to cure plummeting sales.
The Genesis GV80 class action lawsuit has been filed in the US District Court for the Maryland District: Dr. Barbara Feinstein, v. Hyundai Motor Company, et al.
The plaintiff is represented by Corwin Law, Boca Raton, Florida.
