Lawsuit: Automaker Did Not Warn the Public about Antifreeze Leaks
According to carcomplaints.com, the lawsuit filed against General Motors Co. alleges that the automaker concealed defects that allowed antifreeze to leak from radiators in 2011 and later Chevy Cruze models, and that this leak damaged the vehicles. The plaintiff claims that the defect created a toxic odor inside the vehicles as well as other issues.
The plaintiff claims that General Motors tried to hide a defect with the radiator that allows antifreeze to leak. Furthermore, the lawsuit states that General Motors has issued two technical service bulletins to dealers in the past informing dealers of the problems, but the automaker failed to inform the buying public.
The models mentioned in the lawsuit include:
- 2011 Chevy Cruze
- 2012 Chevy Cruze
- 2013 Chevy Cruze
- 2014 Chevy Cruze
The allegations in the complaint include claims of false advertising, breach of express and implied warranty, revocation of acceptance, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, fraud and violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
Other media reports claim that some drivers have experienced a nauseating stench coming from their Chevy Cruze. One man claims that the antifreeze leak poisoned him and put him in the hospital for a week and was unable to work for close to two months. He was later diagnosed with chemical pneumonitis.
