For over 100 years, Chevrolet has become as synonymous with America as, well, baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. While the catchy tune and ad campaign helped drive the auto manufacturer to great success over the years, the company has had its share of serious issues with many of its models, some of which persist despite numerous repair attempts. Chevy, we may have a lemon.

Can the California Lemon Law help Chevy owners?
If you own one of the Chevy models listed above and think you have a potential lemon on your hands, I have good news for you. New and used Chevrolet vehicles are covered by the California Lemon Law if they meet the following conditions:
- The Chevrolet vehicle was purchased or leased from a dealership here in California.
- You have repeatedly brought the vehicle to the dealer for repairs and they can’t seem to fully fix it.
- The problems are not minor, meaning they are serious enough to negatively affect the vehicle’s use, safety, or value.
Your next steps
If your new or used Chevrolet meets these conditions, you may have a case. Under the California Lemon Law, Chevrolet could be required to provide you with a refund or replacement vehicle for your lemon. However, it is important to understand that automotive manufacturers do not make it easy for consumers to obtain the refund or replacement that they deserve. That’s why many vehicle owners turn to lemon law experts like California lemon law attorney Sotera Anderson to understand their legal options and obtain representation for the best settlement.
