These problems have class-action lawsuits

  1. 2.4L Ecotec Oil Consumption

    A series of unfortunate design decisions allow oil to end up in the combustion chamber of the 2.4L Ecotec engine. And a less-than-impressive oil monitoring system doesn't do anything to warn owners about dangerously low oil levels until it'…

    Another owner is suing GM following their decision to cap the Bolt's battery capacity at 90%, even if that's a temporary fix to prevent fires.

    The automaker recalled the Chevy EVs last November after learning that the batteries can spark a flame as they are charging and nearing 100%. By temporarily capping them at 90%, GM can stop those fires while they search for a more permanent solution.

    But a plaintiff in Michigan says Bolt owners need to contend with range anxiety and diminished resale value while they wait. Call me crazy, but a temporary restriction on range feels a lot more desirable than a permanently charred engine.…

    Toss another lawsuit onto the ever-growing pile of GM Vortec oil consumption cases.

    The Missouri based class-action is the latest in a series of suits saying the 5.3L Vortec engine churns through oil because of defects in the low-tension piston rings. The problem is compounded by GM's questionably designed oil life monitoring system which doesn't warn owners when oil levels get dangerously low.

    In fact the system doesn't monitor oil levels at all, just the quality of the oil itself. So while the engine may be dry and on the verge of collapse, rest assured that last quart of oil is still in tip-top shape. 👍🏼…

    General Motors has been sued for last month's Bolt EV recall which temporarily limits the battery's capacity to 90%, bringing the car's range down from 238 miles to roughly 214.

    The plaintiff says the software update is giving him "range anxiety" and that's only heightened by the impending cold weather months which can also limit range. Last I checked, winter was going to happen regardless of the recall and it could just be me but I'd be more anxious about the possibility of my car catching on fire than losing 14 miles of range.…

    A judge has granted GM's motion to dismiss one of the cases alleging the automaker should reimburse C7 Corvette owners for cracked and warped wheels.

    The lawsuit claims GM is breaching its warranty by blaming any instances of cracked wheels on owners driving habits. But the plaintiff made a few key mistakes:

    1. By blaming the design, the plaintiff technically never provided a plausible claim to his breach of express warranty accusation since the warranty only covers only covers defects "due to materials or workmanship." 🙄
    2. The plaintiff had his wheels repaired at a 3rd party before contacting GM and asking for a reimbursement while the warranty "requires a customer to go to a Chevrolet dealer facility within the warranty period and request[ed] the needed repairs."…

    General Motors is facing a second legal challenge for problems related to warped and cracked wheels in the C7 Corvette.

    As reported by the Detroit Free Press, the consolidated class-action lawsuit was brought by eightteen 2015-2019 C7 Corvette owners, specifically the Z06 and Grand Sport trims.

    The plaintiffs are seeking millions of dollars in reimbursements for costs related to replacing wheels that are prone to deforming and cracking without impact damage because GM opted for a cast aluminum rather that a forged wheel.…

    GM used heat shields that don't curve under the starters in the 5th and 6th generation Camaro, according to a new lawsuit.

    That leaves them exposed to heat and makes them completely unreliable. The plaintiff says the problem is particularly noticable on hot days or after a long drive where the engine gets hot. The car has to cool down before an owner can start it back up.

    Over time the lack of heat protection will melt the wires, damage the fuses, and create all sorts of electrical havoc to the starter's conductors.…

    A new class-action is accusing General Motors of knowingly selling vehicles that consume abnormally high quantities of oil.

    It's not the first time GM has been sued for oil issues in the Vortec engine. Specifically (and stick with me here) the Generation IV 5.3L V8 Vortec 5300 LC9 engine.

    As with previous lawsuits, the plaintiffs say low-tension piston rings, oil spray from the Active Fuel Management (AFM) system, and agressive vacuuming from the engine's positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system are to blame.…

    There's growing concern that GM has made a series of bad decisions about the wheels for the C7 Corvette (2015-2019).

    1) They used cast aluminum and not forged wheels. 2) They used less than the recommended amount of casted material. 3) They blame drivers when the wheels split apart after going over bumps

    Now a lawsuit filed in California is accusing GM of systematically denying warranty coverage to owners with cracked wheel problems, even if the prolem happens well within the standard 3-year / 36,000 mile warranty.
