GM Truck and SUV Paint Defect – What You Need To Know

GM Truck and SUV Paint Defect – What You Need To Know

Last Updated on November 2, 2023

If you’re the owner of a 2015-2019 GM truck or SUV, there’s something you need to know. A class action lawsuit has been filed against General Motors over paint defects affecting these vehicles. The plaintiffs also allege that GM knew about the defect and failed to take corrective action. The lawsuit Riley, et al., vs. General Motors LLC has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, and represents owners from Florida and Tennessee.

Read on for more information about the GM truck paint defect lawsuit and what it could mean for affected owners.

Chevy Silverado Paint Issues

GM Peeling Paint Lawsuit Details

GM owners allege the paint on their vehicles is prone to peeling, bubbling, flaking and blistering. The suit claims the paint begins to fail without any external or environmental influence. The defect as stated in the lawsuit, seems to suggest the issue is with the inability of the paint and clear coat to properly bond due to their opposing chemical properties. As a result, the paint is unable to adhere to the surface and begins to bubble and flake exposing the primer sealer.

Peeling Paint More Than Just An Eyesore

Besides being visually unappealing–bubbling, peeling and flaking paint exposes the surface it was designed to protect. If left unrepaired, paint defects can eventually lead to rust further degrading the appearance of the car. Owners claim they have witnessed the finish on their GM trucks and SUVs deteriorate at an alarming rate over recent years. They are now seeking compensation for their losses, and are calling on GM to recall all vehicles affected by the paint defect.

The suit also claims GM was aware of the paint defects, but did not inform it’s customers and continued to market and sell the vehicles.

Status of the GM Truck and SUV Paint Defect Class Action

Class Action Currently Active

The lawsuit (Riley, et al., vs. General Motors LLC) has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, and represents owners from Florida and Tennessee.

Which GM Models Are Affected?

Vehicles named in the suit include the 2015 through 2019 Chevy Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe; and GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, and Sierra.

Decreased Value of Vehicles Due to Paint Defect

The lawsuit claims the paint defect has decreased the resale value of these vehicles. Additionally, owners state that a repaint will not suffice, as its near impossible for a body shop to match the finish applied by paint robots at the factory. As a result, the suit calls on GM to repurchase all affected vehicles at full cost, and reimburse lessees for the amount paid toward their leases. A request to recall all known GM models with defective paint has also been included in the suit.

    I have a 2015 Black Suburban that starting fading out on the hood first. I had the hood buffed out but was told it won’t last. They were correct whereas the hood is totally shoot as well as the roof. I am now noticing the upper panels from the front doors to the rear hatch are also starting to fade (almost a matte looking finish) I have been told its faulty paint and clear coat finish. Would like to be informed on the progress of the law suit. Thank You

    Paint bubble/peel on hood of 2018 Suburban Premium in North Carolina. Only 36K miles on rig. Claim denied by dealer and GM, said it looked like replaced or repainted hood (due to lack of EPA sticker on underside of hood). Explained I had purchased new…no repaint/replacement had occurred…to no avail. Hope the class action suit will expand to cover all effected owners.

GM rep confirmed…would not support claim. Of course I bought it new…no repaint or replacement ever. Only 38K miles on rig. Hope there’s news on lawsuit. Live in North Carolina.

    Is this including Canada? 2015 Sierra paint first coming off at top of windshield. Complained back east (I am in BC) and finally they fixed under ” customer enthusiasm” but is flaking off elsewhere now. Went back to dealer again june 2023 and was told it is long off warranty swo GM has no responsibility.
    PS. When they removed the masking on the first repair, paint came off on drivers door and they fixed. Now dealership no longer has a bodyshop. Purchased in 2018.

    I have a 2019 Black Buick Envision Premier and the clear coat is peeling. I just paid about 6 months ago to get the clear coat fixed. It is peeling now on the passenger’s door. I brought this as a demo after my brand new same type of vehicle but a 2017 was involved in a wreck. I only had the 2017 5 months before someone hit me and bent the frame. I hope GM makes this right for everyone.

My 2019 suburban has issues washed it and paint just blew off. 2 body shops said no reason this should be happening contacted Chevrolet and they said they would cover 10% still leaves us with a $2,000 bill.

    I have a 2014 GMC 2500HD Duramax. The paint on the hood has bubbled all the way down the left side from windshield to the grill about 3-4 inches wide. There is nothing more aggravating than to be driving down the road and see paint just fly off the hood. There is another spot on the top at the 3rd brake light about the size of a baseball. $70,000 truck paint coming off how do i get in on the lawsuit!

    I have a 2014 Silverado that has peeling in multiple spots around the rear door windows, on the front of of the hood, and a spot by the front window. I have another vehicle which is older, drove by the same driver, has many more miles which has been in the same conditions and has no peeling at all. The spots on the Chevrolet are consistent with everyone else who has posted pictures and I told my father a few years ago that is not normal. Since he recently passed I just started looking into getting it repaired and wanted to see if anyone else was having this issue. Out of all the vehicles he or anyone in my family has owned have ever seen anything like that, especially occurring in areas where not much contact of anything occurs (hood could be an exception)

    I have a 2017 Chevy Suburban and the paint started going in 2019, and has progressively gotten worse since. It is not just the full hood of the suburban, but it is also the roof that has bad paint, and the paneling between the passenger and driver doors is peeling off as well. We have gotten multiple estimates; all in the thousands to repaint both the hood and the roof, and keep hearing it is a common problem that Chevy has. This has significantly lowered the value in my Suburban, and I am not happy camper, and may never buy another Chevy again if they do not right their wrong.

    I took my 2016 Chevy suburban (black) with 69k miles to the dealership as I noticed the paint issues on the hood, roof and side mirrors. The manager told me that after 4 – 5 years the clear coat goes bad. I found today that my paint protection warranty ran out in January 2022 so I would need to pay $2,300 to get it fixed. I paid a lot of money for this car and GM knows about this problem and needs to fix it. I want to to stay on top of this and my SUV definitely needs to be on the list. We are in Virginia.

    My 2016 red. Suburban has fading and scratchy looking paint. The car looks 20 years old. I have called Chevy and the dealer that sold it to me and they don’t even want to talk to me. Today I was picking up my daughter at her Chevy. Dealer and while waiting talked to a salesman. I told him I was thinking of trading the car in, so he took it to his manager. The manager said he could only give me $27000 because the paint job looked so bad. I paid $80000 for this car. To say I’m upset is an understatement.

A manager at a Chevy dealership said the car was only worth $27000 because they had to deduct money because the paint looked so bad. I couldn’t believe it. When I said it was their paint, he said “ not my problem”.

    How does a person join this lawsuit in Tennessee? If anyone knows please let me know. My 2015 Tahoe has the same issues. I’ve paid out of pocket to repair the hood and now the roof is blistering. What a crock to spend this much money on a vehicle just to have to repaint it in 6 years.

      You don’t need to do anything, as you are automatically part of the suit unless you write a letter opting out. But I would either submit your car complaint here, or subscribe to this post. This way when news becomes available, you will be notified.

            Hey Christopher,

            This issue with Chevy and GMC paint has been going on for much longer in their work vans. My 2007 Chevy Express cargo van is peeling and rusting. Has this lawsuit been extended to cover other models and years or nationwide? I feel this defect has adversely affected my business.

            I have a 2013 Sierra Denali that is peeling all over. Even has the premium paint package.

            They want over $4k to fix the peeling spots. Even if I do that it will start peeling somewhere else.

            How do I get in on the law suit?

            I Have a 2015 Chevy Tahoe that was my dream vehicle. I purchased it new for 60,000 which was a lot for me but I planned on this being my last vehicle as I was getting ready to retire. I paid $60,000 for it and paid 10,00 down payment. I was so proud of this vehicle and literally felt like a queen driving it around. I delayed retirement until I paid off my Tahoe and paid 1000.00 a month to get it paid off quicker. Instead of being proud of it I am embarrassed to drive it. The hood, roof and top of the doors has lost all its paid. I am so depressed about this issue and do not know what to do. I took it to the Chevy dealer in Weatherford, Texas where I purchased it. They gave me a verbal quote of 10,000 to repaint. My Tahoe has 55,000 miles on it and I am stuck with a 60000 dollar inferior vehicle. I am devastated. Please advise.

            Brenda hopefully you can get some relief if/when a decision on this case is made. Unfortunately, paint defects are difficult cases. I’m surprised the dealer you bought he vehicle from isn’t working with you on that repaint price…3k-10k is the typical spit ball price. I would push them to cut that 10k price in half.

          Sacha this is an ongoing cases, so you won’t need to do anything to be considered a part of a potential class action settlement. If this case settles, anyone who was affected would be able to claim compensation. But we do recommend adding your complaint so we have you on record and send you any important updates that pertain to this lawsuit. Hope this helps.

            My 2016 GMC Yukon hood faded out and I paid to get it repainted. Now the top cab is completely faded out. It has beef that way for about 3 years already. I didn’t know about this matter previously. I hope they be hold accountable. I bought this vehicle for my wife and it’s definitely not turning out the gift I wanted for her. We are very disappointed.

            2014 Silverado, (just missed the lawsuit), 36000 miles and peeling everywhere. Repaint quote 20 to 25 thousand to repaint. My retirement car. I’m pissed. The truck is now considered totaled. I’m watching this lawsuit to see what happens and if I may be included somewhere somehow along the line.

I just took my truck through a car wash a few days ago because of snowstorm we had before Xmas, I just noticed today the paint along the windshield is peeling/flaking off, I was so happy with my truck now disappointed with paint problem. Planning to do a paint touch up but now not sure it’ll work.

      I have a 2014 GMC Sierra that the paint is peeling on the front and back passenger doors. The dealership told me to contact GM directly and GM says to contact the dealership. The dealership even acknowledged that it was a factor defect, along with the local body shop that I got a $3000 quote from.
