GM Auto Defects

GM Auto Defect Attorneys in Houston

Representing Auto Defect Victims throughout the United States

General Motors (GM) is one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world—and one that has been the subject of many auto recalls and lawsuits involving auto defects. According to NBC News, as recently as September 2019, GM recalled almost 3.8 million vehicles, including pickup trucks and SUVs, for an issue with the vehicles’ brakes. The company also issued a recall of more than 177,000 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles from the 2018 model year due to possible fuel injector failure. In addition, GM has had numerous issues surrounding the crashworthiness of their vehicles and the overall ability of GM automobiles to protect motorists and passengers in the event of a collision.

Since 2004, The Ammons Law Firm has been fighting for the rights of those affected by GM’s failure to produce reasonably safe vehicles and properly manufactured auto parts. Based in Houston, our GM auto defect attorneys represent clients nationwide in all types of auto defect litigation. While a large portion of our practice is focused on advocating for victims of GM auto defects, we also represent injured individuals and the families of those wrongfully killed by other auto manufacturer defects.

GM’s 2019 Brake Recall

As previously mentioned, GM recalled more than three and a half million vehicles in September of 2019 due to an auto brake defect. The recall involves a defective power-assist brake pump that, over time, produces less vacuum power, leading to slower-acting brakes.

As a result, vehicles will require a greater stopping distance, which has, at this point, led to 113 collisions and 13 injuries (as reported by GM). However, the defect will undoubtedly lead to countless collisions as motorists are unaware that they will not be able to stop in the same amount of time as they could when the brakes were new.

The recall, which affects both the U.S. and Canada, includes the following vehicles:

  • Chevrolet Silverado and GMC 1500
  • 2500 and 3500 pickups models, years 2014 – 2018
  • Cadillac Escalade, years 2015 – 2017
  • GMC Yukon, years 2015 – 2018
  • Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, years 2015 – 2018

Motorists affected by the recall can have their brakes recalibrated at applicable automobile dealers at no cost. However, if you have already been involved in a collision caused by faulty brakes—regardless of whether you knew of or were unaware of the investigation and recall—you may be able to recover compensation for your damages.
