Shub & Johns launches investigation into reports that certain General Motors vehicles are experiencing an alleged engine defect. Some models of GMC Yukons, Chevrolet Tahoes, and Cadillac Escalades are potentially equipped with faulty engines that rapid deceleration.

Drivers and other consumers have taken to online forums to voice their concerns with a potential defect with certain model and model year vehicles manufactured by General Motors (“GM”). These consumer complaints indicate that these certain vehicles, equipped with a 6.2 liter engine may be experiencing engine failure that can cause the engine and vehicle to suddenly lose power. This may not only happen when idle with some reports indicating that this can occur mid-drive as well, putting the driver and others at an increased risk while on the road.

This alleged engine defect can lead to a rapid and sudden deceleration of the vehicle, as well as causing various engine lights to display on the vehicle’s dashboard. This not only poses a risk for drivers on the road when the vehicle starts decelerating, but the various lights on the dashboard can also become distracting for drivers who are already trying to remedy their vehicle’s deceleration issue. These issues caused by the alleged defect can create unnecessary risks for GM vehicle drivers and passengers, as well others on the road.

Affected vehicles may include:

  • 2019 – 2024 GMC Yukons
  • 2019 – 2024 Chevrolet Tahoes
  • 2019 – 2024 Cadillac Escalades
