What is The Acura Hands-Free Class Action Settlement About?

A class action settlement has been reached with Honda over alleged defects in some Acura model cars. The open class action lawsuit, Aberin et al v. American Honda Motor Co., Inc., alleged that American Honda Motor Co., Inc. failed to disclose a defect in the "hands-free" calling system, HandsFreeLink™ ("HFL"), offered in certain Acura vehicles, including the 2004-2008 TL, 2005-2008 MDX, and 2007-2009 RDX models.
