Hyundai Owners Allege Windshields Spontaneously Break in Class Action Complaint

Written by Emmariah Holcomb, glassBYTEs.com


Lorenzo Ford and Tina Forehand, collectively the plaintiffs, recently filed a class action complaint against Hyundai Motor America (HMA) and Hyundai Motor Company (HMC), collectively Hyundai or defendants, in Central California.

The plaintiffs allege Hyundai manufactured, marketed, distributed and sold its 2020 Palisade without disclosing to purchasers and lessees of its issue with windshields cracking, chipping and otherwise spontaneously breaking. The plaintiffs are seeking a trial by jury along with financial compensation.


According to the class action complaint, the windshield issues cause dangers to safety and Hyundai refuses to admit the glass is defective. The automaker also allegedly refuses to offer a proper fix for the cracked windshields other than forcing Palisade owners to pay for replacement windshields that are also defective, according to the class action complaint.


The complaint claims Hyundai is responsible for the following:


  • Breach of express warranty;
  • Breach of implied warranty of merchantability;
  • Violations of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act;
  • Common law fraud;
  • Unjust enrichment;
  • Violations of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practice Act; and
  • Violations of the Washington Consumer Protection Act.


According to the plaintiffs, Hyundai marketed the 2020 Palisade as its “flagship premium” sports utility vehicle offering consumers “exceptional comfort, technology and safety."


The company also began marketing in the summer of 2019, and within months owners and lessees began reporting problems with the windshields in their vehicles.
