Driveshaft

2015 Cadillac Escalade

What is the “Chevy Shake”? The complaint for this class action alleges that certain Chevy vehicles shake violently when they reach interstate highway cruising speeds, due to defective drivelines and drive shafts in these General Motors, LLC vehicles.

Ford Transit Van

The complaint for this class action makes the unnerving allegation that the flex disc driveshaft coupling in Ford Transit vans can fail, causing the driveshaft to fall out of the vehicle, pierce the passenger cabin, and/or “pole vault” the vehicle into the air. Oh—and that at the same time, the brakes and engine power may fail, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. While Ford issued a recall because of this defect in 2017, the complaint says it simply replaced worn flex discs with the same defective parts, has no permanent solutions to the problem, and will not reimburse van owners or lessees for damages caused by the failure of the discs.
