Yvonne Robninson, et al. v. Kia Motors America Inc., et al., 
LINK 
Up to $4,900~~Deadline 6/19/2017
A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit over allegations certain Kia Sorento vehicles were equipped with a defective crankshaft bolt that could break in some conditions.If you owned or leased a model year 2003-2006 Kia Sorento with a 3.5-liter engine, you may be entitled to benefits from this Kia class action settlement.Plaintiff Yvonne Robinson and several other plaintiffs filed the Kia class action lawsuit in 2013, alleging certain 2003-2006 model year Kia Sorento vehicles with 3.5-liter engines have a crankshaft pulley bolt defect that can result in the bolt breaking.When the crankshaft pulley bolt breaks, it can damage other engine components, the Kia Sorento class action lawsuit alleges. The damaged engine components can reportedly cause significant issues, including the loss of steering control and possible engine failure that can increase the risk of an accident. The plaintiffs assert Kia knew about the Sorento engine defect for years but failed to disclose the problem to consumers.Kia denies the allegations but the vehicle manufacturer has agreed to settle the Kia Sorento class action lawsuit to avoid the cost and burden of ongoing litigation. The Kia crankshaft bolt defect settlement was preliminarily approved on Nov. 2, 2016.Class Members who wish to exclude themselves from or object to the Kia Sorento settlement must do so no later than April 3, 2017.
