Ten of the world's biggest automakers were sued Wednesday by U.S. consumers who claim they concealed the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning in more than 5 million vehicles equipped with keyless ignitions, leading to 13 deaths.The defendants include BMW, including Mini; Daimler's Mercedes Benz; Fiat Chrysler; Ford Motor Co.; General Motors Co.; and Honda, including Acura.The lawsuit claimed that the 10 automakers have long known about the risks of keyless ignitions, which have been available in the United States since at least 2003, yet deceived drivers by marketing their vehicles as safe.The lawsuit seeks class-action status and an injunction requiring automakers to install automatic shut-off features on all existing and future vehicles sold with keyless ignitions.BMW, Fiat Chrysler and Toyota declined to comment.
