GM Air Conditioning Problem

Owners of certain makes and models of General Motors vehicles have been reporting air conditioners blowing warm air, not enough air, or failing altogether.  Not only have their air conditioners failed, but they have had to wait months for the dealer to obtain replacement parts to correct the defect, because GM is swamped with A/C fixes.

Five class actions have been filed against GM stating that certain GM trucks and SUVs were sold with a defective air conditioning system.   Even GM acknowledges that the claims ‘share factual questions arising from the allegations of a common defect.’


1. Vehicles Covered

Complaints have been reported about,

Cadillac Escalade (model years 2015-2017),
Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (model years 2014-2016),
Chevrolet Suburban (model years 2015-2017),

2. Defect and Cause of the Air-Conditioning Problem

Several of the components in the air conditioning system are “too weak to
hold the pressure of the coolant” which builds up when the system is on.  One problem is that the discharge lines and condensers are too weak to handle the pressure the coolant is under.   Parts are causing coolant to leak out and air to seep in, which causes water vapor to freeze into ice, blocking the circulation of coolant.  The fluid is forced out of the system, making the system ineffective, and creating other potential problems.

3. Claims

Claims may be filed for breach of implied warranty, lemon law, express warranty, and violation of the federal Magnuson-Moss Act.  Further, complaints  allege that GM
knew about the alleged air conditioning defect, withheld that information from the public, and continued to advertise and sell the vehicles without informing purchasers of any issue.   Service bulletins related to the air conditioning defect were issued in
October 2014 and May 2015, online forums that contained customer complaints, and there have been ae number of claims for AC System repairs and part replacements
made during the car’s warranty periods.
