There is a pending lawsuit in California involving Jeep Cherokee and the death wobble issue. According to the lawsuit the plaintiff, Melinda Martine, has suffered permanent injuries as a result of the Jeep accident. Injuries include broken bones, severe pain, permanent disabilities, stress and worry. The lawsuit is currently in the discovery stage.
A current Jeep class action lawsuit relates that Cherokee and Gladiator cars are subject to an allegedly defective death wobble feature when driving at highway speed. The plaintiff Melinda Martine states that her life was saved due to this allegedly defective part. According to the lawsuit, the steering wheel started to shake violently when the car was driven at high speeds on a two lane highway. According to the lawsuit, the steering pump also began to shake violently. Additionally, when the plaintiff’s vehicle suddenly came to a stop the steering started to shake violently once again.
Another Jeep class action lawsuit involves damages for pain and suffering as a result of an allegedly defective sunroof that easily broke after only a few years of use. As a result of this broken sunroof, the plaintiff was unable to safely drive her Jeep. The lawsuit further alleges that since the sunroof had not been properly installed by Jeep it put the driver and other drivers at risk of having their eyes injured by glares from the broken sunroof. A settlement was reached between the parties in this case.
A third jeep class action lawsuit relates to the water showing of the headlights of the Jeep. According to this lawsuit the lead actor in the movie “windtalkers” was traveling with his family on a vacation through the mountains of Wyoming when he noticed water showing from the headlights. When he asked the group what was happening, his wife stated that a small plastic cap had come off of the headlight causing water to appear. When questioned by the plaintiffs’ attorney, the lead actor said that the water in the headlights came from the sunroof, which was located between the steering wheel and the windshield. Other members of the plaintiff’s family stated that they believed that the water showing in the headlights came from the interior of the sunroof.
During a final lawsuit against Jeep, a Jeep Cherokee was allegedly stolen by its owner from another vehicle in the Dallas area. Subsequently, the owner took the vehicle to a repair shop, where it was reportedly fixed. However, three months later the plaintiff and his cousin allegedly found the steering wheel and brake pedals missing from the Jeep.
The complaint against these defendants alleged that they were aware of the potential dangers of the defective Jeep Class Action Lawsuit but failed to take reasonable steps to protect the public’s safety. The lawsuit also named the automobile manufacturer, Kbb & Grigg, as an individual defendant. The class-action lawsuit named all consumers who have purchased Jeep models manufactured by Kbb & Grigg between March 1996 and May 2021; as well as any other manufacturers who sell Kbb and Grigg Jeep models.
