Welcome to the Banks v. Nissan North America, Inc. website.This website contains information regarding a proposed class action settlement that has been preliminarily approved by the Court calledBanks v. Nissan North America, Inc., Case No. 4:11-CV-02022-PJH (N.D. Cal.). If you currently own or lease or previously owned or leased a model year 2004–2008 Nissan Titan (with VDC), Nissan Armada, or Infiniti QX56, you may benefit from a Proposed Amended Class Action Settlement. NATURE OF THE SETTLEMENTPlaintiffs allege that Nissan North America ("NNA") failed to inform consumers that the failure of the Delta Stroke Sensor ("DSS"), a component in the brake booster in certain model year 2004–2008 Nissan Titan (with VDC), Nissan Armada, and Infiniti QX56 vehicles, could cause an alleged reduction (but not a complete loss) of braking power. Plaintiffs allege that Continental Automotive Systems, Inc., formerly known as Continental Teves ("Continental") manufactured the active brake booster containing the Delta Stroke Sensor at issue in this action. NNA and Continental deny all of the Plaintiffs' claims and state that in the unlikely event of a DSS failure, the driver would continue to have sufficient braking power. The Court did not rule in favor of either party. Instead, the parties agreed to a proposed settlement in order to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuits.If you are eligible, the Proposed Settlement may provide you with payments to reimburse a portion of the out-of-pocket expenses to repair or replace the Active Brake Booster and/or VDC Control unit (which houses the DSS) (in addition to any service provided pursuant to the original manufacturer's warranty).THE SETTLEMENT CLASSThe Settlement Class includes all individuals in the United States who currently own or lease, or previously owned or leased, any model year 2004–2008 Nissan Titan (equipped with VDC), Nissan Armada, or Infiniti QX56 vehicles.You are not part of the class if you1) never owned or leased a model year 2004–2008 Nissan Titan (equipped with VDC), Nissan Armada, or Infiniti QX56 vehicle; (2) are an employee, director, officer, or agent of NNA or Continental or their subsidiaries and affiliated companies, or (3) are a Judge of the Court in which the Action is pending (or could be appealed to), or part of their immediate family and staff.
