General Motors' Sales of Cars with False Crash Test Safety Ratings

Shapiro Haber & Urmy LLP is currently investigating General Motors’ sales of cars with false statements on the new car window labels. On the new car window labels for several vehicle models, including the 2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan and the 2014 Cadillac CTS VSport, General Motors stated that the cars had achieved 5-star National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety ratings for three different crash tests. In fact, those model cars had not been crash tested by the NHTSA at all. General Motors has admitted that the new car window labels falsely represented that the cars had been crash tested and received 5-star NHTSA safety ratings when, in fact, they had not been crash tested at all.  It has done so in letters to some Cadillac purchasers.

Shapiro Haber & Urmy has brought a class action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on behalf of people who purchased General Motors cars with false new car window labels. That action is entitled Geri Siano Carriuolo v. General Motors Company, No. 14-61429. Click here to see the Class Action Complaint that we have filed in that case.

Attorneys Edward F. Haber and Patrick J. Vallely, at Shapiro Haber & Urmy, are working on this case, along with attorneys Jeffrey Liggio, of the West Palm Beach, Florida law firm, Liggio Benrubi ( and Donald Fountain of the West Palm Beach, Florida law firm, Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin, LLP (
