Certain General Motors Yukon SUVs Have Tail Light Defects, Car Owners And Others End Up Facing Heightened Security Concern
Yukon SUV models are involved in a recent class action filing arguing that the car manufacturer sold them despite knowing that they have faulty tail lights that affect the driver’s and passenger’s safety.
California Lawsuit Claims General Motors Should Be Held Responsible For Faulty Yukon Cars
Filed in a federal court in California, the GM Yukon Tail Light Class Action Lawsuit 2021 is suing the car company General Motors in court for various charges.
According to the case’s leading complainant Bruce Schramm, many car owners and leaseholders of later models of GM Yukon SUVs were forced to pay fees out-of-pocket to have the defective tail lights fixed.
It is said that GM already acknowledged the faulty car part in earlier makes, but the carmaker allegedly refused to admit that the faulty tail light issue is also present in some of the latest releases they had.
The said brake tail light defects on the said models pose a safety hazard to car owners. As a remedy, the broken rear-end lights need to be mended. In many cases, the repairs are costly, and owners end up paying for the costs.
Per the class action, there are possibly two reasons behind the said rear-end brake light issue. One of them is an allegedly defective LED (light-emitting diode) strip component used in the tail light. Additionally, it is also believed that a present broken circuit board is also to blame.
Plaintiff Bruce Schramm Shares His Ordeal, Wants Court To Take Action
Schramm shared that he owned a GM Yukon SUV 2017 model and experienced a faulty tail light. Both right and left lamps ended up being damaged, and he ended up paying for repairs to fix the concern. Due to how the lights were designed, they need to be replaced entirely.
The GM Yukon Tail Light Class Action Lawsuit is contending that present GM Yukon SUV customers would not have bought or paid for the vehicle had they known the issue surrounding the car models’ tail light issue. Furthermore, plaintiff Schramm contended that the defects plaguing his and other people’s cars ultimately diminish the perceived value of their vehicles.
The class action is asking the court to consider the formation of a Class group consisting of car owners and leaseholders of the following GM Yukon SUVs released in the years 2017-2019: Yukon Denali, Yukon Denali XL, Yukon, and Yukon XL.
This is an ongoing class action, and Consider The Consumer will continue to report on this case. Updates will be posted as soon as they are available to the general public.
