Auto manufacturers will sometimes release faulty cars, trucks, and other vehicles to the public. Unfortunately, Cadillac, a division of General Motors, is no exception. For instance, owners of Cadillac vehicles should look out for the following signs:
- Transmission Failure
- Oil Leaks
- Engine Failure
- Check Engine Light Turns On
- Vehicle Dies While Driving
- Hard Down Shifting
- Brake Pedal is Stiff
- Vehicle Stalls While Driving
Should these symptoms or any other vehicle problems repeatedly appear, your Cadillac may be a lemon. If you want to seek legal remedies from your auto manufacturer at this time, get a free consultation from an attorney to discuss your Cadillac lemon law rights.Get a Free Case Review
Cadillac Lemon Law Litigation
Since several Cadillac vehicles were affected by multidistrict litigation that was launched against Cadillac’s parent company in 2014, you could very well have a Cadillac lemon law case.
Specifically, those lawsuits alleged that some General Motors vehicles were equipped with defective ignition switches. All of a sudden, engines shut of and disabled safety features while the vehicles were in motion.
That same year, GM recalled over 30 million vehicles worldwide. In essence, the automaker allegedly knew about the defect ten years before the recall and only reached a settlement with consumers in 2020. Cadillac models affected by the recall include 2003–2014 CTS as well as 2004–2006 SRX crossover vehicles.
Furthermore, consumers have litigated against GM for a phenomenon known as the “Chevy Shake” in which some General Motors vehicles allegedly shudder, buck, vibrate and shake violently.
As a matter of fact, two lawsuits attribute the defect to different causes; one suit alleges that the defect arises from a faulty 8-speed transmission, while another alleges that it’s caused by a defective aluminum drive shaft.
