IS YOUR CHEVY A LEMON?

Having Chronic Problems With Your Chevy? Don’t Wait to Call a California Lemon Law Attorney

Chevrolet has long been a major division of General Motors. You can see a wide variety of Chevy vehicles on almost every road—from minivans to sedans to pickup trucks. The company also won several “Green Car” awards in 2017 after introducing the first mass-market affordable all-electric car, the Chevy Bolt EV.

Despite its successes, Chevy has had its fair share of issues. Its slogans include “Like a Rock” and “Chevy Runs Deep,” both indicating that you can depend on Chevy vehicles to run for a long time. However, many consumers have experienced serious issues with their Chevrolet vehicles, some of which will persist despite numerous repair attempts. These are the people looking for legal advice on lemon cars. 

If you have repeatedly taken your Chevy to the repair shop and continually experience the same problems, you may have important legal rights under California’s lemon law. If your vehicle is under a manufacturer’s or dealer’s warranty, you should not have to keep wasting your time going back and forth for possible repairs or spending time without your vehicle. Instead, our experienced California lemon law attorney can advise you of your options for legal relief. Call today at 1-855-96-(LEMON) or contact us online for a free consultation regarding legal aid today.

Common Problems With Chevy Lemons

Chevrolets vehicles have prompted many consumer complaints, and some have thousands of complaints, from relatively minor problems to those that may threaten the lives of vehicle occupants.

Seven Chevy vehicles that have especially bad reputations as lemon cars include:

  • 2012 to 2016 Chevrolet Cruze
  • 2013 to 2016 Chevrolet Impala
  • 2012 Chevrolet Equinox
  • 2014 to 2017 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2015 to 2017 Chevrolet Camaro
  • 2013, 2016, 2017 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2017 Chevrolet Volt

These vehicles may suffer from defects in the engine, transmission, and/or cooling system.

If your vehicle has gone to the shop multiple times for these concerns, contact us and we will let you know if your vehicle might qualify under the lemon law. Our California lemon law attorney will be able to help you navigate the legal system.

General Motors has also issued recent recalls for:

  • 2013 Chevrolet Volt
  • 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
  • 2018 Chevrolet Colorado
  • 2018 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2015-2016 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2015 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2010 and 2012 Chevrolet Express

The recalls range from electrical systems and engine and fuel systems to airbag and seat belts. All of these can pose safety risks if a malfunction occurs while you are driving your Chevy.

When you purchase a new or used Chevrolet and the manufacturer or dealer provides you with a warranty, you can take your vehicle in for certain repairs cost-free for a period of time. However, what happens if the repair shop cannot fix the problem? How many times do they expect you to take the time to seek repairs? How long should you have to deal with tow trucks and rental cars?

California lemon law attorney Sotera L. Anderson understands your rights under the law as the owner of a lemon. Our office stands up for the consumer rights of vehicle owners, and we seek to eliminate your chronic car problems and help you obtain the relief you deserve.

How Lemon Laws in California Help Consumers

The law classifies a vehicle as a lemon when it has a substantial defect that continues despite numerous repair attempts. Repeatedly experiencing trouble with your car, taking your car into a shop, and then experiencing the same issues again can become stressful and costly. If your vehicle is under warranty, you should know that you do not have to simply keep dealing with this exhausting cycle, as you have important rights under the law.

California gives consumers who purchased lemons the right to seek legal relief in several ways. Exercising your lemon law rights may result in:

  • Having the manufacturer or dealer buy back your vehicle and issue you a refund, which you can use to purchase another vehicle
  • Receiving a substantially similar replacement vehicle that hopefully will not suffer from the same chronic defects
  • Receiving a cash settlement, which allows you to keep the lemon and do with it what you wish

While the law gives you the right to relief from owning a lemon, corporations are generally not cooperative when it comes to issuing cash payouts or handing over a new vehicle to consumers. Companies have many tactics to avoid giving you what you deserve under the lemon law, which is why you should hire a skilled lemon law attorney.

Our California lemon law lawyer can help you in many ways. First, the definition of a lemon under California law can confuse many people, and proving your car is actually a lemon may prove more difficult than you imagine. Even though you know you had major and continuing problems, the manufacturer will require specific proof to admit liability.

Always keep all records of every repair attempt—whether it was successful or not. Keep receipts for tow truck bills, car rentals, and any other incidental expenses stemming from the lemon. The law entitles you to payment for these costs, as well. Our law firm knows how to put together a persuasive case to prove your vehicle is a lemon and to seek the legal or financial recovery you deserve for your troubles.
