GM DIESEL EMISSIONS

June 9, 2017

Proposed class action lawsuits have been commenced in the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta against General Motors and Bosch alleging breach of certain provisions of the Competition Act, consumer protection legislation, and of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act as a result of certain diesel engine vehicles that were equipped with defeat devices. The claims allege that those vehicles do not comply with Canadian emission standards, and as such cannot live up to the representations that they had a cleaner burning engine while being more powerful and better performing than their gasoline counterparts.

Branch MacMaster LLP and Mussio Goodman LLP are counsel for the plaintiff and for the proposed class.

Our current understanding is that the affected vehicles included model year 2011-2016 GMC Sierra and model year 2011-2016 Chevrolet Silverado.  

If you purchased or leased one of the affected vehicles, you may be part of the Class if the action is certified as a class action. If you would like to receive direct updates or notifications in this proceeding, please let us know by contacting our paralegal Ulla Herlev at uherlev@branmac.com or (604) 654-2964. In the meantime, we suggest that all potential class members retain any documents they have regarding the purchase or sale of their vehicles, or any repairs effected to bring the vehicles within emission compliance standards. Those documents may be necessary at a later stage of the proceedings.
