General Motors LLC (GM) was once again hit with a lawsuit. This time over allegations that their 2010-2015 Cadillac SRX has faulty headlights causing them to burn out prematurely.
According to the lead plaintiff, Chester Steele, “These conditions can thereby contribute to traffic accidents, which can cause personal injury or death. Hundreds of class members have complained to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about the danger of the headlight defect.”
The lawsuit claims GM knew about the headlight defects and tried everything they could to conceal and avoid the issue.
“Rather than redesigning the defective components, GM purports to ‘repair’ the class vehicles by simply replacing defective components with the same defective components,” Steele said. “Further, because GM refuses to cover the cost of these repairs or issue a recall, class vehicle owners have to pay out of pocket for these repairs. GM thus unfairly shifts the costs to the class members, and benefits from the revenue generated by repeat repairs.”
According to the lawsuit GM has violated the California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, violated the unfair competition law under the California Business and Professions Code, breach of Implied warranty under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act — also known as the California Lemon Law — and breach of implied warranty under the U.S. Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
