Nissan class action settlement has been offered for the brake defect issue. The plaintiffs were alleging that Nissan North America Inc. did not notify its consumers about a failure of a brake booster component. This is the Delta Strike Sensor (DSS). In several Nissan and Infiniti cars, this issue might cause a braking power reduction. The Continental Automotive Systems Inc. has built the DSS.
The affected models include model years 2004-2008:
- Nissan Titan
- Nissan Armada
- Infiniti QX56 cars
In fact, owners of these models might be entitled to reimbursement from the Nissan class action settlement. The remedy will probably be a few hundred dollars. The manufacturer does not agree with the class action allegations. However, Nissan still said “Yes” to settle the class action.
To start with, the major benefit of the class action is that it provides partial reimbursement for the repair costs. Thus, eligible Class Members can get remedies if they have paid someone to repair the problematic part for them.
U.S. residents owning or leasing the aforementioned models at the moment will be the Class Members. The potential award that the Class Members are going to receive is up to $800. However, the amount might vary depending on the mileage reading of the car at the time of repairs.
If you consider yourself a Class Member, you should provide the following documents:
- Documents reflecting the C1179 diagnostic code connected with the DSS problem
- Payment receipts proving you have actually paid for the repairs
- Documents proving you owned or leased the car at the moment of the repairs
