Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Chevrolet for Heat Shield Issues

Home - News - Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Chevrolet for Heat Shield Issues

Chevrolet is currently facing a class-action lawsuit due to Camaros manufactured from 2010-present allegedly having issues with the starter and heat shield. Drivers have reported that their starter will “just click” and the engine will crank without the vehicle ever starting.

What’s Wrong with the Starters?

This class-action lawsuit alleges that the starters and heat shielding in impacted cars were defectively designed and not installed correctly. This lawsuit claims that the heat shields can’t protect the starter from surrounding heat, causing the starter to burn out over time. This results in drivers unable to start their cars, especially in hot weather. The starter will click, or the engine may crank but the car is not able to turn on.

Does GM Know?

General Motors is believed to be “well aware” of the problem, but they are allegedly continuing to conceal the defect and blame the issue on bad batteries or poor consumer care.

If you’ve had issues with your Camaro’s starter, we encourage you to contact a private attorney for a free case review. Class Actions often result in inferior relief for individuals, whereas if you hire your own attorney you may be eligible for more relief than what is awarded to the entire class. If you do not contact a private attorney and do not opt-out, i.e., exclude yourself from the class action, you will be bound by anything that is awarded to class members no matter how small the relief is for your particular situation.
