In September 2002, a class action was instituted against Hyundai Motor America, who misrepresented the engine power of certain Hyundai vehicles distributed in Canada. The class action against Hyundai was authorized on April 15, 2004.
When the case was ready for trial, the parties concluded a settlement agreement that was approved by the Court in January 2007.
This settlement agreement also covers the Kia file and represents a total financial commitment by Hyundai and Kia in excess of $7 million.
The claim period has expired and this file is now closed.
