General Motors Named In Class Action Lawsuit Over Excessive Oil Consumption

Who Is Affected?

Anyone who owns or leases a 2010-2017 Chevy Equinox or a 2010-2015 GMC Terrain and has had problems with their car’s oil consumption.

Whats Going On?

Owners of the vehicles stated above have complained that the engines in their vehicles are burning oil at an excessive rate. I have heard complaints as high as 1 quart of oil every 500 miles.

Why A Class Action Lawsuit?

In a successful case, a class action lawsuit could help owners and lessees get back money they spent on:

  • Unreasonably frequent oil changes
  • Oil purchased to be carried around in the car “just in case”
  • Inspections, diagnostic tests and repairs to their car
  • Loss of the car’s value

  • What Should I Do Now?

    GO CHECK YOUR OIL! If you own one of these vehicles you should be checking your oil at a minimum of every 1,000 miles. If you notice the oil is low, take the vehicle to a GM dealership asap and have them document the oil consumption.
    Fill out the form on this page and tell them about the problems you had with your Chevy Equinox or GMC Terrain. After you get in touch, one of the attorneys may reach out to you directly to learn more about your car’s problems and to explain more about your legal rights.

      I have a 2012 GMC Terrain which had an oil consumption issue at 79,000 miles, brought it in to the dealership and it was supposedly fixed. This last weekend at 130,000 the engine seized because there was no oil and it showed oil life 56%. life is not good and totally stressed out d/t still owing money on the damn vehicle.
