Lieff Cabraser is investigating widespread complaints of vehicle air conditioning failures from owners of a large number of GM Cadillac Escalade, Sierra, Suburban, and Tahoe models, Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra and Yukon models. Owners of these SUVs and trucks from across the 2014-2017 model years report experiencing complete air conditioning system failures due to what they claim are condenser component defects.
The claims center on what are reported to be bad welds in the original condenser units. The problems are worsened by what many owners report are GM’s acknowledged 10-12 week delays in the supply chain, such that many owners have been forced to wait two to three months for the repairs to be made. As summer temperatures in many regions soar into triple digits, this leaves Escalade, Sierra, Suburban, Tahoe, Silverado, Sierra and Yukon owners with vehicles they say are undriveable due to concerns about child, pet, and driver safety. While GM has reportedly recalled all of its previous faulty inventory stock of the affected parts, no vehicle recall has been issued for those drivers stuck with failing GM air conditioning.
