Lawyers file motion asking judge to make ‘Chevy Shake’ lawsuit a class-action suit

A lawsuit over what’s become known as the “Chevy Shake” is one step closer to becoming a class-action suit.

General Motors has not issued a recall for the so-called “Chevy Shake,” where the vehicle may vibrate due to a faulty part. Many drivers are relying on the Won v. General Motors lawsuit, hoping it becomes a class-action suit and covers anyone who owns the following vehicles if the plaintiffs win or settle:

  • 2015-2019 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2017-2019 Chevrolet Colorado
  • 2015-2019 Chevrolet Corvette
  • 2016-2019 Chevrolet Camaro
  • 2015-2019 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV
  • 2016-2019 Cadillac ATS, ATS-V, CTS, CT6 and CTS-V
  • 2015-2019 GMC Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL and Yukon Denali XL
  • 2017-2019 GMC Canyon

Recently, lawyers for the plaintiffs filed a motion officially asking the judge to make it a class-action lawsuit. They believe the judge could rule on whether to make it a class-action suit as early as next month.

Representatives with GM told Action 9′s Jason Stoogenke it does not usually comment at this stage of a case.

Stoogenke, who first reported on the vibration issues more than two years ago, was one of the first in the country to report on it. Since then, more consumers have complained to him about this issue than any other, except for problems related to the pandemic such as stimulus checks and unemployment. Nearly 300 drivers in 30 states and Canada have contacted Action 9.

Keith Tolbert from Clover, South Carolina, owns his own roadside assistance business. He told Stoogenke his Chevy Silverado is his office.

“I need something that drives normal, to run my business,” Tolbert said, but he says his truck doesn’t drive normally.

“(When it shakes, it feels like) all the tires are going to fall off of it,” he told Stoogenke. “I just want a comfortable work truck that don’t do that.”

Tolbert would like GM to find a fix for his truck or replace it.
