(WINDSOR, ON) – London-based law firm Siskinds has filed a proposed class action against General Motors and auto parts supplier Bosch. The action alleges certain diesel-powered Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty trucks were equipped with software able to allow the vehicles to defeat emissions testing.
German-based Bosch is alleged to have developed the software and supplied it to GM. The action alleges that under ordinary driving conditions, the vehicles emit levels of pollutants that are far higher than advertised and allowed by law.
The action seeks to advance claims on behalf of all individuals or businesses in Canada who purchased or leased a 2011-2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 or 3500 or a 2011-2016 GMC Sierra 2500 or 3500 with a Duramax diesel engine.
Siskinds is asking anyone who may have purchased or leased one of the trucks in question to contact it by phone at 800-461-6166 x2380. The legal firm has not released information on how many of the vehicles were purchased through Windsor dealers.
At this point, the allegations have not been proven in court.
