SFMS Announces The Filing Of A Class Action Complaint Against General Motors Corporation

On May 10, 2007, Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLC (“SFMS”) and its co-counsel, Kemnitzer, Anderson, Barron & Ogilvie, LLP, filed a Class Action Complaint (“Complaint”) in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California on behalf of their clients, William O’Connor and Melody O’Connor, and members of the proposed Class, against General Motors Corporation (“General Motors”), alleging violations of California state warranty laws.

Specifically, the Complaint alleges that Pontiac GTO vehicles’ tires are wearing unevenly and prematurely, thus causing owners and lessees to replace the tires after a very short life-span and, also, raising significant customer concerns. It appears that consumers’ tires are wearing unevenly especially on the inside of the tires as a result of the tires rubbing against the inside strut. The constant rubbing on the inside of the tires could lead to an explosion of the tires and possible blow out. Upon information and belief, Pontiac has not issued a technical service bulletin for this problem.

The Class consists of all current and former owners and lessees of model year 2004 and 2005 Pontiac GTOs purchased or leased in the State of California.
