Class-Action Lawsuit Regarding Chevy’s Malfunctioning Airbags

Both 2010 and 2011 Chevy Camaro models have airbags that don’t employ when passengers are sitting in the front seat. Now, Chevy faces a class-action lawsuit because the issue hasn’t been resolved in these vehicles.

The plaintiff filed for a class action lawsuit on January 15th, 2021, claiming that the cars have a defect that causes the front passenger airbag on the right side to turn off when someone is seating in the vehicle.

The issue is tied to the vehicles’ passenger presence sensor (PPS) which has been especially prone to tearing.

Plaintiff Alleges That General Motors Was Aware of the Issue

General Motors reached out to a handful of its dealerships in 2010 to notify them that drivers were complaining that the passenger-side airbag turned off when an adult was sitting in the seat.

The company was found to be in direct violation of the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation Act (TREAD Act). This act states that as soon as a manufacturer discovers a vehicle defect, it must notify the owners in addition to the Secretary of Transportation.

General Motors is continuing to deny the airbag defect despite being in direct violation of the TREAD Act.

Vehicles Impacted

Vehicles included in this recall are fifth-generation 2010-2011 Chevrolet Camaro vehicles that were either purchased or leased by consumers in the U.S. besides in the state of California.
