Smart Start ignition interlock devices are faulty. The equipment simply fails and there is no consumer recourse. The equipment failure leads to an ‘incident’ report on your file with DOL and Smart Start. It is impossible to meet the bar of four months of incident free in order to have it removed. The consumer therefore is locked into the monthly fee, a fee at every incident, excessive towing fees, can fees.

"It is impossible to meet the bar of four months of incident free in order to have it removed." There are plenty of persons who regain their driver's licenses. They regain their driver's licenses only if they meet all the requirements. So, it must be possible "to meet the bar of four months of incident free in order to have it removed".
You probably do have a choice in which ignition interlock device is installed on your vehicle. You can research which brand is reliable and choose that brand.
As for "a class action lawsuit", you can contact law firms that specialize in class action lawsuits and contact those law firms to see whether they want to take the case on.
