The law firm of Hagens Berman is planning to file suit against GM claiming it cheated on diesel emissions in the same fashion VW did.  The group's web page is asking owners of 2011-2016 Chevy Silverados with diesel engines to sign up for reimbursement if a case is settled. The firm representing Silverado owners has sued such companies as Boeing, Acura, BMW, Amgen, and other large corporations in the past.


We don't have much more information at this time. Learn more at the firm's page on this topic

What magical fairy dust proof do they have of this...?


Anything over 8500lbs is exempt from fuel economy testing anyway so that alone to me renders this suit useless.  If you buy an HD truck for the fuel mileage, you bought the wrong truck. 


Also, many states don't emissions test HD trucks.  NY for example, anything over 8501lbs that is a pickup truck does not get sniffed or even plugged into the NYVIP computer unless its NYC area.
