2017-2019 GM Yukon and Yukon Denali Tail Light Defect – Class Action Investigation
Ahdoot Wolfson is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against automaker General Motors (GM) relating to reports that model year 2017-2019 GM Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali, and Yukon Denali XL vehicles are equipped with defective tail lights that fail to illuminate when engaging the brakes in these vehicles.
According to reports, this defect is so prevalent that replacement tail light assemblies are on a national backorder. Despite GM being aware of the issue, it reportedly does not offer a fix for the defect for vehicles outside of warranty. Indeed, when the defect occurs, repairing the self-contained tail light assembly is not possible–the tail light must be replaced entirely, at a cost of as much as $1000 to consumers.
Tail light failure in automobiles presents a highly unsafe driving scenario–it creates an increased risk of rear collision during vehicle operation and mid-drive, risking the safety of vehicle owners and lessees, their passengers, and other motorists on the road.
