Transmission Class Action regarding 2015-2019 Cadillac, Canyons and Camaro

There is a new class action developing for owners of the

  1. 2015-2019 Chevrolet Silverado

  2. 2017-2019 Chevrolet Colorado

  3. 2015-2019 Chevrolet Corvette

  4. 2016-2019 Chevrolet Camaro

  5. 2015-2019 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV

  6. 2016-2019 Cadillac ATS, ATS-V, CTS, CT6, and CTS-V

  7. 2015-2019 GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Yukon XL, and Yukon Denali XL

  8. 2017-2019 GMC Canyon

The transmission complaints revolve around hesitations, shakes, shudders, jerks, clunking and hard shifts that occur due to the design of the GM 8L90 and GM 8L45 transmissions. The class action goes on to suggest that the transmission defect is a safety issue and can also cost consumers extra money in repairs.

All this coupled with the fact that GM cut their power train warranties from 5 years and 100,000 miles to 5 years and 60,000 miles (which ever comes first) can definitely add up to more frustrated consumers who purchased these vehicles

A copy of the class action complaint, filed on 12/18/2018, can be accessed here. The name of it is Duffy v. General Motors, LLC

2018 GM Fuel Pump Recall

GM is recalling approximately 850 Buick, Cadillac, Chevy and GMC vehicles at risk of leaking fuel and causing fires.  They are the:

  • 2018 Buick LaCrosse
  • 2018 Cadillac ATS
  • 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
  • 2018 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2018 Chevrolet Colorado
  • 2018 GMC Terrain
  • 2018 GMC Acadia
  • 2018 GMC Canyon

GM says the joint that connects the fuel pump’s outer housing to the pump’s flange may not have been properly welded by the supplier. Over time, the weld could crack and cause a separation of the high-pressure fuel pump from the flange, allowing the pump to oscillate inside the engine compartment.

The automaker says the movement of the pump is what could potentially damage the high-pressure fuel line and cause fuel to leak. Any gas that makes contact with an ignition source can easily start a fire.

General Motors says it doesn't have a clue as to when the recall will begin, but dealers will need to replace the fuel pumps and fuel lines.

Customers with questions or concerns should call Buick at 800-521-7300, Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 or GMC at 800-462-8782.
