New GM Brakes Class Action filed.

A California couple has filed a class action lawsuit against General Motors (GM) alleging the company knowingly installed defective braking systems in thousands of Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC Trucks and SUVs and failed to inform consumers of the dangers posed by the faulty systems.

The suit, filed by Scott and Samantha Peckerar, cites an “irreparable and defective braking system supplied in all of the Class vehicles.” The suit alleges the defect makes it difficult to stop with the brake pedal becoming hard, requiring the driver to use much more force to slow the vehicle, severely and suddenly compromising the distance required to stop.

The class action complaint was filled in United States District Court, Central District of California, Eastern Division. It goes on to allege the defective braking systems were installed in all of the following vehicles::

  • 2015 to present Cadillac Escalades

  • 2014 to present Chevrolet Silverados

  • 2015 to present Chevrolet Suburbans

  • 2015 to present Chevrolet Tahoes

  • 2014 to present GMC Sierras

  • 2015 to present GMC Yukon/Yukon XLs

GM recalls 1.2M pickups, SUVs for power steering problem

GMis recalling more than one million pickup trucks and SUV’s in the U.S. for a steering defect

The defect has been linked to 30 crashes and two injuries. The trucks can lose their electronically controlled power steering momentarily before it suddenly comes back on, causing the driver to have difficulty steering, GM said in a filing to federal safety regulators. The flaw causes drivers to lose control especially at slower speeds.

A GM spokesman said the company is aware of 30 accidents and two injuries but no fatalities.

GM said the defect is caused by a software problem in the electronic-power-steering module. Dealers will update the software to fix the problem for free.

The recall consists of:

  • 2015 Chevrolet Silverado

  • 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 pickups

  • 2015 Chevy Tahoe

  • 2015 Chevy Suburban

  • 2015 Cadillac Escalade

  • 2015 GMC Yukon SUVs.

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.
