Corwin Law, a consumer advocacy law firm based in Boca Raton, has filed a class-action lawsuit against Hyundai on behalf of owners and lessees of the 2021 Hyundai Genesis GV80 SUV. The Korean manufacturer is accused of promoting the GV80 luxury SUV despite being aware of dangerous defects affecting the vehicle’s drivability that are documented in Korean news media and current customer message boards.
In the five-count lawsuit, captioned as Dr. Barbara Feinstein v. Hyundai Motor Company, et al; United States District Court, District of Maryland case number 1:21-CV-1436, class representative Dr. Barbara Feinstein describes leasing a 2021 Genesis GV80 in February and then experiencing issues with vehicle instability and subpar performance, including shaking, shuddering, vibrating, and pulling of the Genesis GV80.
Dealerships in both Florida and Maryland have attempted repairs to rectify this issue. “I’ve been without my GV80 for about 45 days out of 95 days of the lease agreement. At one point, Hyundai’s national repair organization arranged for it to be transported from Florida to Maryland. There has still been no resolution on this matter,” explained Feinstein.
According to message boards hosted by GV80 aficionados, there are countless owners of the GV80 who have shared a stockpile of negative experiences and failed repair attempts. These problems have affected owners and lessees across the nation and in Canada.
The GV80 is no stranger to controversy. Earlier this year, golfer Tiger Woods was in a life-altering auto accident in Los Angeles, CA while driving the Hyundai GV80. Attorney Marcus W. Corwin stated, “This Federal class action lawsuit seeks to bring justice and relief to GV80 owners and lessees nationwide.”
