If you owned or leased a 2004-2008 Nissan Titan (with VDC), Nissan Armada or Infiniti QX56, you may be entitled to benefits from a proposed class action settlement from a lawsuit that alleges Nissan failed to warn consumers about a potential reduction in braking power on these vehicles due to the failure of a brake booster component.
The suit alleges that Nissan North America Inc. failed to issue a warning that the failure of the Delta Stroke Sensor (DSS) found in 2004-2008 Titans, Armadas and Infiniti QX56s could result in a reduction of braking power. The component named in the suit is manufactured by Continental Automotive Systems Inc., which is also a party to the suit.
While the companies deny that the brakes of certain vehicles could be affected by a DSS failure, they have agreed to settle the class action suit. Eligible class members include U.S. consumers who previously owned or leased, or currently own and lease, a 2004-2008 Nissan Titan (with VDC), Nissan Armada or Infiniti QX56.
Qualified class members are eligible for an award of up to $800, depending on the mileage of the vehicle at the time of the DSS repair. The settlement includes partial reimbursement for costs associated with repairing or replacing the active brake booster and/or the VDC control unit.
To claim a settlement award, class members must provide documentation that (1) he or she owned or leased the vehicle at the time of repair of the DSS issue, (2) he or she paid for the repair; and (3) the repair reflects the specific C1179 diagnostic code associated with the DSS issue.
