The class action was brought on behalf all persons in the United States who purchased or leased any 2009 through 2012 GMC Acadia, 2009 through 2012 Buick Enclave, or 2009 through 2012 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles (collectively, “Class Vehicles”) designed, manufactured marketed, distributed, sold, warranted and serviced by General Motors, LLC and General Motors Company

This action arises out of a uniform and widespread defect in the integral steering system of an entire class of automobiles that poses an extremely unreasonable safety risk not only to the driver and passengers of the vehicle, but to other drivers on the road and pedestrians on the streets.

The lawsuit alleges that the steering system in these vehicles are defective because steering may intermittently and drastically fail while the car is in motion (the “Steering Defect”), thus creating a serious safety risk.
