Recently, General Motors began notifying owners of certain Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks that the represented trailer weight towing capacity was substantially less than represented when the vehicles were purchased new. Specifically, GM reduced the trailer weight towing capacity in these pickup trucks from 8,800 pounds to 6,800 pounds. So what did GM do for customers that owned these truck? Absolutely nothing.
Fortunately, in California, owners of these pickup trucks have legal recourse under several legal theories. Remedies under these legal theories may entitle the owners of these pickup trucks for a full refund of the pickup trucks’ purchase price.
