ABILENE, Texas (Legal Newsline) – Two consumers allege that they have paid out-of-pocket expenses to repair a defective air conditioning system in their GM vehicles.
Marcus Bell and Christopher Robitsek filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated on Sept. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas against General Motors Co. alleging violation of the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act, breach of express warranty and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the air conditioning system in their GM vehicles is defective. They allege the defect causes the entire system to fail and damage component parts.
The suit states the class vehicles include 2015 Cadillac Escalade; 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500; 2015 Chevrolet Suburban; 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe; 2014-2015 GMC Sierra 1500; and 2015 GMC Yukon.
The plaintiffs holds General Motors Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly knew that its vehicles had been equipped with defective air conditioning systems that prematurely fail but failed to disclose the defect to owners and lessees.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek actual, general, special, incidental, statutory, punitive and consequential damages; interest; all legal fees; and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Benjamin F. Johns and Andrew W. Ferich of Chimicles & Tikellis LLP in Haverford, Pennsylvania.
