Porsche Class Action Lawsuit Filed Over Warranty

Porsche class action filed for warranty
Porsche owners say automakers are failing California’s auto parts emissions guarantee.

Aug 11, 2021 – A Porsche class action lawsuit alleges that California consumers are paying for parts and repairs that should fall under California emissions regulations.

The Porsche lawsuit includes the following consumers.

“Anyone in California who owned or leased PORSCHE vehicles and paid for repairs and parts that should have been covered by PORSCHE’s” High Priced Warranty Parts “, 7-year California 70,000 mile emissions guarantee (the” Class ” ). “

However, the lawsuit states that plaintiffs reserve the right to add states other than California.

According to the Porsche class action lawsuit, the automaker does not correctly identify the parts that should be classified as “costly emissions guarantee parts” under California regulations.

Allegedly to save money on warranty repairs, the class action lawsuit says Porsche is limiting the parts that should be covered by the emissions warranty to 7 years and 70,000 miles. This supposedly allows Porsche to limit warranty coverage for these parts to just 4 years and 50,000 miles.

For more than 20 years, the California Code of Regulations has included a section titled “Warranty Requirements for Emission Control System for Passenger Cars, Light Trucks, and Medium-Duty Vehicles and Engines of 1990 and Later Model Years.”

This requires Porsche to list all vehicle parts to the supervisory authorities that are “high-priced warranty parts”.

The class action lawsuit states that Porsche must provide California consumers with a 7-year, 70,000-mile warranty on all high-priced guaranteed parts.

“A ‘warranty part’ is defined as“ any part installed in a motor vehicle or motor vehicle engine, or incorporated into a warranty repair, by the vehicle or engine manufacturer that affects regulated emissions from a motor vehicle or engine covered by this warranty, California Emissions standards. ‘”

Plaintiffs claim that Porsche intentionally left out the parts in the warranty booklet that were supposed to be listed as high-priced warranty parts that were supposed to be covered by the 7-year 70,000-mile emissions guarantee.

Plaintiffs allege that Porsche is forcing customers to pay for parts and repairs that the automaker should legally pay for under warranty.

The Porsche class action lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Central District of California: Ferry et al. vs. Porsche Cars North America, Inc. et al.

The plaintiffs are represented by the law firm Robert L. Starr.
