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.
Some GM vehicles have a rear hatch with a nasty habit of dropping on your head. It's no gentle drop either, owners have been complaining that the gas strut rods can fail allowing the lift-gate to give way to gravity and drop on your head like an apple -- a really, really, heavy apple. Thanks a lot, Newton.
GM says over 3,100 SRXs might have been built with the wrong driver's seat track bracket.
Taking a sharp turn, making an unexpected stop or a crash could cause the seat to detach and make a mess of the driver. That's a problem.
General Motors is in the news again with a recall of another 733,000 vehicles, 5 golden rings, 1 partridge in a pear tree and who knows what else at this point... it's hard to keep track of it all. Luckily, you don't have to because you signed up for our free alerts! Smart move, folks -- here's a breakdown of what you need to know:
The 2013 Cadillac SRX is being recalled because of an acceleration lag of 3 to 4 seconds. I'm sure that goes over great with your fellow commuters when driving to work. Faulty programming in the transmission control module (TCM) is making your car so slow to respond to the gas pedal that even turtles on benadryl are saying "dude, hurry up". To be fair, conditions have to be just right for the lag to occur. According to GM, the problem only happens when the driver:
