A federal district court has issued a final order and judgment approving the settlement agreement in a lawsuit alleging certain Acura RDX models have defective infotainment systems.
The lawsuit, filed in July 2019, alleged 2019 and 2020 Acura RDX models have defective components that cause the infotainment systems—which include a backup camera, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay—to malfunction.
In June 2021, the court preliminary approved the settlement agreement. After settlement class members were given a chance to request exclusion from the settlement class or object to the agreement, the Court entered an order granting final approval of the settlement agreement on January 19, 2022. The 18 class representatives received service awards totaling $120,000.00, and class counsel received fees of $2,260,794.00 and expenses of $477,701.00.
The lawsuit is Jimmy Bahn, et al v. American Honda Motor Company, No. 2:19-cv-5984 RGK, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
