Delaminated CUE Screens
The CUE infotainment system found in most 2013-2018 Cadillac vehicles has a screen with major design and installation flaws resulting in bubbles, cracks, and an unresponsive interface.
A/C Condensor Leaks
GM used leaky air conditioners that buckle under pressure in many 2014-2017 trucks and SUVs. Whether it's busted hoses or leaky condensors, thousands of GM owners are showing up to work with sweat stains down their back. It's such a widespr…
Water in SRX Headlights
There's enough water accumulating inside 2010-2015 SRX headlight assemblies to fry the bulb. Meanwhile, GM continues to replace the assemblies with the same defective parts.
Stop me if you've heard this one before.
2010-2015 SRX owners are tired of moisture leaking in through faulty seals and burning out their overly expensive bulbs. Following in the footsteps of a Missouri lawsuit earlier this month, a new lawsuit has been filed in Michigan asking for the same reimbursements offered to owners in Florida and California.
A second class-action lawsuit has been filed demanding General Motors take action to fix or reimburse owners related to CUE system repairs.
The lawsuit points to multiple TSBs as evidence that GM has known about this issue since 2014 but continues to sell cars with the same defects.
A lawsuit says GM is aware of manufacturing errors causing the Cadillac CUE screens to crack, bubble, and delaminate.
The screens become unresponsive and out-of-warranty repairs can cost up to $1,200. The plaintiffs point to a series of technical service bulletins (TSB) GM sent to its dealerships between 2014 and 2017 as proof the automaker knew about installation problems. Specifically how a lack of preperation allowed moisture to enter the screens, effecting the bond between the glass and laminate surfaces.
A new lawsuit has popped up as SRX owners across the country continue to have mositure problems with their headlights.
Earlier this year Cadillac offered to reimburse expenses related to the problem for owners in Florida and California, but attempts to nationalize the lawsuit were shot down. This latest lawsuit, filed in Missouri, is another sign of how widespread this problem is.
A headlight lawsuit has been settled for owners of the 2010-2015 SRX that live in Florida or California.
Residents of those states will be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses related to moisture getting into the headlight assembly, including bulb replacements, up to $1,600 per replacement. GM will also reimburse owners for a new moisture analysis performed by certified Cadillac technicians.
Attempts to file a nationwide class-action for headlight moisture problems in the SRX have failed
, but the case will move forward for California residents. The lawsuit alleges that GM knew about the faulty seals before selling the cars to consumers. The nationwide case was shot down by the judge who said the Manguson-Moss claim is specific to goods sold in California.
Water collecting in your SRX headlight? You're not alone.
A proposed class-action lawsuit in California says moisture can accumulate through defective headlight seals in the 2010-2015 SRX. The problem reduces visibility and makes nighttime driving more dangerous. The problem can end up costing owners thousands of dollars as the water will cause the epxensive bulbs to repeatedly fail.
It'd be nice to see Cadillac do the right thing here ... you know, without the threat of legal action.
CTS owners should beware of falling stars. Safety stars, that is.
If you bought a 2014 CTS, one of the deciding factors might have been the car's 5-star safety rating in three critical categories: frontal crash driver, frontal crash passenger, and rollover. However, GM started sending out letters to owners saying "Our bad, the window sticker was totally wrong. Here's a coupon for some free OnStar. We cool?"
OK, while I'm paraphrasing their exact words, I am not making up the OnStar offer. That was the best they could come up with.…
Have you heard of a Monroney sticker?
I can guarantee you've seen one --- it's the sticker required by law to be on all new cars sold in the US with important information like price, fuel economy and safety ratings.You just assume those things are accurate, but what happens when they're not?…
