Welcome to the Settlement website for Cooper, et al. v. American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, Case No. BC 448670. This website provides information regarding a Settlement of a class action lawsuit that claims that sun visors on some Honda Civics are defective, causing them to split apart, which may impair their function.

The settlement covers all persons in the United States, including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the territories of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and Saipan, who currently own or lease or previously owned or leased one or more of the Class Vehicles.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (“Honda”) has extended the warranty for sun visors on Class Vehicles to seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever first occurs. In addition, the settlement provides that Honda will reimburse Class Members who, prior to the Effective Date of the settlement and during the period of the extended warranty, paid to repair or replace a sun visor or sun visors on Class Vehicles. This settlement also establishes procedures and standards for processing claims, including an appeals process; provides assistance to Class Members seeking settlement benefits; and ensures that the program will be administered under the Court’s supervision.

In conjunction with the settlement, Honda has implemented the terms of the settlement prior to the Court’s final approval by extending the express limited warranty for sun visors for the Class Vehicles to seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever first occurs, and reimbursing current and former owners/lessees of those Class Vehicles for past repairs or replacements of the sun visors. These benefits will be provided to Honda owners regardless of whether the Class Action settlement is approved by the Court. 



This option is the only way to get a cash payment.

If you timely submit a valid Claim Form with a receipt, invoice or similar documentation showing payment for a qualified sun visor replacement or repair, you will be eligible to receive a reimbursement payment.


Get out of this lawsuit.  Keep rights.

Asking to be excluded from this lawsuit allows you to be part of any other lawsuit against Honda about the legal claims in this case.  Regardless of exclusion, you will remain eligible for reimbursements for the repairs or replacements of the sun visors as described in the Adjustment Program and the warranty for sun visors will be extended.




Write the Court about why you like or don’t like the settlement.

You may choose to write the Court indicating why you like or dislike the settlement.  You must remain a member of the lawsuit (i.e., you cannot ask to be excluded) in order to object to the settlement.


Get no payment.  Give up rights.

If you do not submit a Claim Form, you will not be reimbursed for any money you paid out of pocket to fix your sun visor(s).  If you do not exclude yourself from this settlement, you will not be able to sue Honda for any claims related to this settlement and you will be bound by the rulings made in this case.

 These rights and options – and the deadlines to exercise them – are explained in the Notice. The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the settlement. Please be patient because this process will take time.
