Quebec Superior Court Judgment dated May 9, 2016

---------------------------------------

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Honda on behalf of individuals who own or lease a 2008, 2009, 2010 Honda Accord or 2009, 2010 Acura TSX and who have had their rear brake pads wear out prematurely.

The class action litigation is based on Honda’s new Braking System that suffers from a defect that causes excessive force to be applied to the Vehicles’ rear wheels. As a consequence of this defect, the Vehicles’ rear brake pads wear out and require replacement about every 20,000 to 30,000 kilometers, far more frequently than in a properly functioning braking system. Normally, rear brake pads typically last for 100,000 kilometers or more. The front brake pads are not affected.

The cars involved include:

• 2008 Honda Accord
• 2009 Honda Accord
• 2010 Honda Accord
• 2009 Acura TSX
• 2010 Acura TSX
