Consumer Attorneys Hagens Berman Laud States' Decision To Weigh Inadequacy Of Honda Civic Hybrid Settlement

There are approximately 95,000 owners of 2006-2008 Honda Civic Hybrids equipped with what Honda admits are prematurely deteriorating IMA batteries, court documents show.

Under terms of the proposed settlement, Honda would pay a maximum of $9.5 million for the battery issue if every owner claimed the $100 award. Consumers claim the actual repair of the issue for the 95,000 owners will cost more than $332 million.

Attorneys general in California, Iowa, Massachusetts, Texas and Washington have asked San Diego County Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor to give the states until February 29th to review the settlement. Judge Taylor has the ability to approve or reject the settlement.

Consumers who would like to learn more about the proposed settlement can contact Hagens Berman by calling (206) 623-7292 or by emailing HondaClass@hbsslaw.com.  More information is also available at www.hbsslaw.com/honda-civic-hybrid
