GM Selling SUVs Knowing That Fuel Pumps Are Defective – Lawsuit Featured

GM knew that fuel pumps and modules used in its’ Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles were prone to fail but concealed the fact from consumers.

If you are the owner or lessee of a 2020-2024 Chevrolet Equinox or GMC Terrain, your vehicle may be affected by a significant defect that General Motors (GM) failed to disclose. This defect, involving the fuel pump and its control module, can cause your vehicle to stall unexpectedly, leading to dangerous driving conditions and costly repairs. Now, you have the opportunity to stand up for your rights and join a class action lawsuit against GM.

What’s the Issue?

The lawsuit alleges that GM knowingly sold these vehicles with defective fuel pumps, which can cause the engine to stall or lose power unexpectedly. This defect not only jeopardizes your safety but also leads to significant repair costs and devaluation of your vehicle.

The Dangerous Defect

The defect involves the fuel pump and/or fuel pump power control modules, which exhibit issues in design, manufacturing, and workmanship. These defects result in an interrupted flow of fuel from the gas tank to the engine, causing the engine to fail while driving. This can lead to sudden stalling, loss of power, and increased risk of collisions, making the vehicles unreliable and unsafe.

GM’s Knowledge and Concealment

Since as early as 2019, GM has been aware of the defect. However, instead of addressing the issue, GM continued to market the vehicles as safe, reliable, and durable. The company failed to disclose the defect and has not provided a permanent remedy, leaving consumers with defective vehicles and the burden of repeated, costly repairs.

Why Join the Class Action?

  1. Safety Concerns: The defect poses a serious safety risk, as the vehicle can lose power or stall unexpectedly, increasing the risk of accidents.
  2. Financial Impact: Owners and lessees are faced with substantial repair costs, often ranging from $1,200 to $2,000, for a defect that GM has not permanently fixed.
  3. Decreased Vehicle Value: The defect diminishes the resale value of your vehicle, causing you financial harm.
  4. Hold GM Accountable: Joining the class action lawsuit is a step toward holding GM accountable for its failure to disclose the defect and provide a reliable solution.

Your Legal Rights

Under federal law, automobile manufacturers are required to ensure their vehicles function properly and are free from material defects. When a defect is discovered, manufacturers must disclose it and provide a remedy. By concealing the defect and failing to provide an adequate solution, GM has breached its warranty obligations and consumer protection laws.
