SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) - Three customers are suing General Motors, alleging certain of its vehicles contain an airbag defect.
Philip Bryde of California, Jennifer Waters of California and Alvin Northington of Nevada, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit May 4 in
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
against General Motors LLC, alleging fraudulent omission, breach of implied warranty, breach of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and violations of California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act and its Unfair Competition Law.
The suit alleges General Motors' 2010 and 2011 Chevrolet Camaro vehicles contain one or more design and/or manufacturing defects in the airbag systems that can cause the right front passenger frontal airbag to fail to deploy when it should not.
The complaint states the defect presents a significant safety hazard that renders the vehicles unreasonably dangerous. General Motors, the lawsuit states, has failed to notify consumers of the airbag defect, offer to fix the problem or reimburse consumers who have incurred expenses to repair the airbag themselves.
The plaintiffs and other class members seek a jury trial, declaratory and injunctive relief, damages, disgorgement and restitution, interests, attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Lionel Z. Glancy and Mark S. Greenstone of Glancy Prongay & Murray in Los Angeles.
