Hyundai Ioniq Class Action Suit Claims Vehicles Missing Assist Systems

A class action lawsuit claims that Hyundai Ioniq SE, Hyundai Ioniq SEL and Hyundai Ioniq Limited vehicles are missing the advertised Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist systems.

According to the automaker, the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist system uses radar sensors in the rear bumper to monitor traffic while the vehicle is in reverse, and uses emergency braking to stop collisions. The Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist uses similar sensors to warn drivers of obstacles in the vehicles’ blind spots.

It also uses emergency braking to prevent collisions.

The lawsuit claims that 2020 Hyundai Ioniq cars were falsely advertised to possess these safety features, which may lead consumers to rely on safety systems that do not exist.

One owner alleges that his Ioniq vehicles does not have assist systems, but instead warning systems, which do not trigger the brakes in the event of an imminent collision. The vehicle owner said that attempts to contact Hyundai and the dealership yielded no results.
