A group of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 purchasers have filed a lawsuit against General Motors because of a problem that lawsuit says causes the vehicles to go into a reduced-power mode while on track after a spell of difficult driving.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, declares that after around 15 minutes of track usage, the 650-horsepower, supercharged V-8 Corvette Z06s will enter into “limp mode” because of a faulty cooling system which then avoids the motorist from driving the vehicle at its fullest on the course. The case likewise claims that GM was “knowingly selling allegedly defective” automobiles, despite the fact that the cars are sold as track-ready.
The company behind the lawsuit from the plaintiffs’ side is Hagens Berman-a group that has a history of prominent vehicle lawsuit. According to the company, over 30,000 Z06s from model years 2015-2017 could have these concerns.
“The law firms state that GM deceived customers and broke state and federal laws by failing to make sure that the Z06 functions safely, and by cannot divulge the cooling system problem,” a representative with Hagens Berman stated. “The match brings counts of deceptive concealment, breach of warranty, unjust enrichment and other claims.”
Hagens Berman is asking the owners of Corvette Z06 to get in touch with the company to collect more information on the problem.
