Our office handles Chevrolet air-conditioning claims on a contingency basis with no payment required from the consumer.


What Vehicles are Covered

Car air conditioning
Problems have been reported on GM trucks and SUVs, namely the Cadillac Escalade (model years 2015-2017), the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (model years 2014-2016), the Chevrolet Suburban (model years 2015-2017), the Chevrolet Tahoe (model years 2015-2017), the GMC Sierra 1500 (model years 2014-2016) and the GMC Yukon (model years 2015-2017).


What types of Problems Have been Reported 

According to the class action, because of the high number of failures, AC System replacement parts are on national backorder and the wait for replacement parts is long – often many months.  Components may  crack and leak refrigerant;  lose pressure within the AC System; and  fail to properly function to provide cooled air into the Vehicle’s passenger cabin.   The Silverado, Suburban, and Tahoes all have significant problems with the air conditioning system that may  break down during normal vehicle operation, with charges for repair due to factory defect.

Kia Sedona Power Sliding Door Defect

Woman with broken car

Kia Sedona owners have complained about problems with the sliding doors.  Owners may be entitled to compensation or other relief.

More than 106,400 model year 2015-2018 Kia Sedona minivans have power sliding doors that could automatically close on objects located between the sliding doors and the minivans.  The power sliding door module controls the sensor that is located in the interior door well and detects movement while the sliding door closes.

Kia and the supplier determined the original programming of the module is set to a threshold level that can fail to detect objects in the path of the door sliding closed. This will prevent the automatic stop and reversal feature from doing its job.

In September 2017, Kia was looking at field data and found 17 customer complaints about power sliding doors that didn’t detect obstructions in 2015-2017 Sedona.  Engineers inspected the minivans and found the doors worked as intended, so Kia decided to monitor the field for additional problems.

General Motors Air-Conditioning Problems

  1. Causes 

Condensor, fluid, and the overall system have been identified as the source of problems.
As the class action explains, “The first defective component is the line leading from the compressor to the condenser. This line consists primarily of an aluminum tube connected to a rubber hose. On information and belief, this line can fail in two ways. First, the aluminum tube can become disconnected from the rubber hose, creating an opening in the line that can allow refrigerant to escape. Second, the aluminum tube itself has a material defect that can allow the tube to rupture, also allowing refrigerant to escape.   GM has recognized this defect. It no longer manufactures the compressor to condenser line that was original equipment in the Class Vehicles.

General Motors instructed mechanics that if they find a failure in this line, they are to replace it with a newly designed line and install a bracket in the system to minimize flexion and movement of the compressor to condenser line. (Exhibit A). Unfortunately, customers who suffer this failure after the vehicle is out of warranty are required to purchase and pay for the installation of these new parts, thus having to pay twice to obtain a functioning air conditioning system.

    2. Vehicles Covered 

Vehicles with the Class Defect include the 2015 to 2017 model Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV; the 2015 to 2017 model Chevrolet Suburban; the 2015-2017 model Chevrolet Tahoe; the 2014 to 2017 model GMC Sierra 1500; the 2015/2016 model GMC Sierra Heavy Duty; the 2014 to 2017 model Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the 2015/2016 model Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty

cropped-woman-angry.jpg

Owners of the Chrysler Pacific have complained about multiple engine problems and a class action has been filed.

1. Complaints

Here are typical complaints,

“Not even an hour after leaving the dealership the vehicle stalled, losing all power, and had to be restarted to regain power and driving ability at a stop light. We were not hit, but it is very dangerous to have a vehicle that stalls randomly.”

— NHTSA ID 11056049

“My pacifica’s engine turned off WHILE I WAS MOVING. I had no warning, just that it stopped accelerating and the screen said that car must be in park to put it in drive. Thankfully I had just turned onto a residential street, however, due to the steering being electronic, I had lost the power steering. I had to coast to a stop, then put it in park and press the on button with foot on brake like normal starting…I am not sure what to do at this point, I’m really nervous about driving it. The tech couldn’t tell me anything. I didn’t have any warning, and nothing weird happened with the vehicle before the shut off of the engine.”

— LAPRINCIPESSA, PACIFICAFORUMS.COM

“Purchased a brand new Chrysler Pacifica vehicle 3 wks ago on may 18 2017…May 21 was the first incident on the interstate in chicago we stalled in the middle of traffic for approximately 10 minutes. May 27 we pulled up to a stoplight and the engine stalled out on us that lasted approximately 3 minutes, the same day at a tollbooth we stalled out which lasted about 25 minutes before the car would start again…May 30 we left the grocery store the screen switch to the app page and would not switch back, the brakes locked and we lost engine power. That lasted 20 mins before car would start. June 7 car would not start after coming out of the grocery store waited 20 minutes then tried again car started 30 seconds after the ignition button has been pressed by itself.
