Interstate Battery Warranty Class Action Filed Against Costco

A proposed class action against Costco Wholesale Corporation was filed regarding their Interstate-branded batteries. The complaint alleges that Costco provided a cash refund for the purchase price of the Interstate-branded car battery but also charged the price difference for the replacement battery. The complaint further states that consumers reasonably believed that the “Free Replacement Warranty” would, if the battery was defective and returned during the warranty period, be replaced at no additional cost.

The class, if approved, would encompass anyone who purchased an Interstate-branded battery that contained the “Free Replacement Warranty” at Costco in the United States who were not provided with a free replacement during their warranty period upon returning the defective battery.

The case is Skandrel v. Costco Wholesale Corp., Case No.: 9:21-cv-80826, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
