Now GM Is Involved In A #DieselGate Controversy

Owners of GM products with Duramax Diesel engines, largely encompassing the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pick up trucks, have filed a class action lawsuit against the carmaker claiming that their vehicles have the same sort of emission cheating software that has been found on VW products. If allowed to proceed, 705,000 vehicles could be covered by this lawsuit.

Since I have previously reviewed GM products, I asked them for a comment. Here it is in full:

These claims are baseless and we will vigorously defend ourselves. The Duramax Diesel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra comply with all U.S. EPA and CARB emissions regulations.

Here’s the problem. Anyone who makes a diesel product at the moment is going to be assumed to be guilty of cheating. Thus they’ll be a target of one of these lawsuits. I guess we’ll find out if GM is guilty of something in a court of law sooner or later.
