General Motors Brakes Class Action - Harris v. General Motors, LLC

A class action lawsuit was filed on October 23, 2017 in a Texas court alleging that General Motors vehicles have brake booster problems that necessitate the replacements of the boosters and master cylinders.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Texarkana Division - John J. Harris, et. al., v. General Motors Company (5:2017cv00180). Class counsel is Wyly and Rommel and can be reached here:

The proposed GM brake failure class-action lawsuit includes all former and current owners and lessees of the following vehicles:

  • 2015-2016 Cadillac Escalade

  • 2014-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • 2015-2016 Chevrolet Suburban

  • 2015-2106 Chevrolet Tahoe

  • 2014-2016 GMC Sierra 1500

  • 2015-2016 GMC Yukon

The lawsuit alleges GM's strategy is to engage in deception upon customers, while even technical service bulletins allegedly contain false and deceptive information about fixing the defects because the repairs do not fix the vehicles and the statements are designed to mislead dealers and vehicle owners.

According to the lawsuit, GM issued a series of service bulletins to dealers regarding the brake problems.
