SAN FRANCISCO – Three consumers have filed a class-action lawsuit against an auto manufacturer over claims it sold cars with a defective airbag system.
Philip Bryde, Jennifer Waters and Alvin Northington filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on May 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against General Motors LLC citing violation of the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, fraudulent omission and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they purchased or leased in 2010 or 2011 a Chevrolet Camaro with a defective airbag system. The plaintiffs hold General Motors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly manufactured and distributed vehicles with the defective airbag, which may cause severe injuries to its passengers.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek to offer to repair the defect without charge; provide an extended warranty of 10 years/120,000 miles, whichever is later to plaintiff and its class; cease the sales of the vehicle unless informing the buyer first of the defect; pay damages and restitution; compensatory, exemplary, and statutory damages plus interest; all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Lionel Z. Glancy and Mark S. Greenstone of Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP in Los Angeles.
