Chevrolet Tahoe, Silverado, and Suburban Air Conditioning Problem

Posted by Howard Gutman | Jan 12, 2018 | 0 Comments

Are you having problems with your Chevy Tahoe, Silverado, or Suburban A/C system?  You may be entitled to compensation.

1. Typical Problems with the Air-Conditioning System

Owners of the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe 2014-17 have experienced multiple problems with the air-conditioning system. A class action has been filed and owners may be entitled to compensation. The problems have included leaking condensor, blowing hot air,

The diagnosis has included,
* Leaking condenser with replacement needed,
* Faulty hose,
* Air-conditioning additive.

Despite systemic problems, the manufacturer has periodically refused to pay for the repair.

2. Inconvenience

Chevrolet Silverado owners have been deprived for weeks or even months of a functioning AC System. Other consequences may include engine stalling because the AC System's compressor is powered by the engine's accessory drive belt.

3. Causes

One claim explains, automotive AC systems, including the AC Systems in Class Vehicles, are “closed loop” systems that circulate a gaseous refrigerant to cool vehicle cabins. When operating as intended, AC systems should not consume refrigerant or allow it to escape the system. Thus, a vehicle's AC system will cease to produce cold air only if a system component ceases to function properly, or if the system develops a leak that allows the refrigerant to escape. See General Motor Air-Conditioning Complaint.

4. Claims

As the class action complaint says, “GM was and remains under a continuing duty to disclose to Plaintiffs and the members of the Class the true character, quality and nature of the Class Vehicles, that the Defect results from a poor design and/or failures in the manufacturing process, will require costly repairs, poses safety concerns, and diminishes the resale value of the Class Vehicles, in addition to causing Class members to pay out of pocket to repair their Vehicles once the Defect manifests. ”

Additionally, if the compressor seizes while the AC System is in operation, it may place excessive strain on the drive belt, and thereby the Vehicles' drivetrain, which can result in engine problems.

Wondering how to handle vehicle troubles? Consider these potential claims:
  • Breach of Express Warranty Claim: Hold manufacturers accountable for warranty obligations.
  • Lemon Law Claim: Seek relief for persistent defects affecting your vehicle.
  • Deceptive Practices Claim: Misleading actions during purchase or repair may entitle you to compensation.
  • Magnuson-Moss Claim: Federal law protects consumers with warranty-related issues.
  • Breach of Implied Warranty Claim: Ensure your vehicle meets required quality and performance standards.
