Class action investigation on behalf of current and former owners of 2014-2020 Dodge Durangos where rear tail lights (a/k/a “racetrack light”) located on the tailgate assemblies infiltrate with water due to defective sealing of the housing during the manufacturing process resulting in failure of the brake lights, dimming, flickering, and/or complete failure of the racetrack lights, and other electrical problems such as failure of the rearview camera and license plate lights.
Sauder Schelkopf filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of current and former owners of Dodge Durangos. It is alleged that Durango owners have reported that the rear tail lights and the unique LED “racetrack light” located on the tailgate assemblies of their Dodge Durangos infiltrate with water due to defective sealing of the housing during the manufacturing process. The resulting water damage may result in a variety of issues such as failure of the brake lights, dimming, flickering, and/or complete failure of the racetrack lights, and other electrical problems such as failure of the rearview camera and license plate lights. According to some owners, the failure of the tail light assembly due to water infiltration is not covered under warranty, leaving owners to pay out of pocket (often over $1,000) for repairs and replacements.
