GM Lemon Law Buyback Attorneys

Sick and tired of spending time at the shop trying to get your new or used GM repaired? Have you wasted time and money and the car still has the same problem(s)?

California’s Lemon Law covers GM vehicles and could be the path to either getting your money back or receiving a new vehicle!

What is the Lemon Law?

In 1970, California enacted the Lemon Law to provide drivers with relief from persistent problems with their vehicles.

What does the Lemon Law do? The simple answer: if you purchased or leased a new or used vehicle in California that is under a warranty and has had an ongoing problem or problems that a dealer has unsuccessfully attempted to fix over multiple repair visits, you may qualify for compensation.

The California Lemon Law applies to cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, RVs, motorcycles, some business-owned vehicles, and boats.

It applies to purchased or leased new vehicles. It also pertains to used vehicles that are certified pre-owned and/or still under a manufacturer’s warranty.

Does My GM Qualify as A Lemon?

There is no single or easy answer. The Lemon Law requires both a substantial defect and either that the vehicle is not repaired after multiple attempts to get it fixed or it has been at the dealership for many days cumulatively.

Substantial defects impair the vehicle’s “use, value, and/or safety.”

  • A defect that affects a vehicle’s use is one that prevents you from driving the vehicle as it was intended to be driven.
  • A vehicle’s value is diminished when the defect means the vehicle won’t sell for the price it normally would bring – if the defect weren’t there.
  • Safety defects are defects that put the driver, passengers, and other drivers in danger.

The problem does not have to be safety related to qualify. If your GM has been ‘in the shop’ repeatedly and still has the same issue, it may be a lemon.

If a defect involves a safety issue, such as faulty airbags, it may only require two repair attempts. If your GM has been in ‘the shop’ for more than thirty days, cumulative, regardless of the defect(s), it may also qualify as a lemon.

Some examples of problems in a GM vehicle that could be considered substantial are problems involving:

  • Brakes
  • Engines
  • Steering
  • Electrical systems
  • Suspension
  • Air conditioning/heating systems
  • Windows
  • Transmissions
  • Doors
  • Back up cameras
  • Water leaks

It is important to remember that your GM does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected.

Even if your GM has over 50,000 miles on it, if you took it in for repair while it was still under warranty it could still potentially be considered a lemon.

About GM

GM was founded by William C. Durant on September 16, 1908. From 1931 through 2007 GM had a market share of 50% of the cars sold in the U.S. General Motors is ranked number 18 on the Fortune 500 rankings of the largest United States corporations by total revenue.

Common GM Vehicle Defects

GM is one of the oldest car makers in the world. That, of course, does not mean they produce vehicles without defects. Every car manufacturer does. Manufacturing mistakes, a problem with a supplier’s product, design issues, a robot off by millimeters, a plant-wide problem, all can make a GM a lemon.

Some of the common defects that people have complained about regarding GMs include:

  • Transmission problems
  • Airbag issues
  • Fuel tank overflow
  • HVAC system issues
  • Fuel pump issues
  • Speedometer not working correctly
  • Loud clunking noises from the engines
  • Sputtering
  • Stalling

GMs are known to have good safety ratings and their vehicles have some impressive safety features, but they have still had to issue numerous recalls over the years for safety-related as well as other reasons.

GM’s most recent recall was for faulty airbag warning lights.

Other recent recalls GM has issued include:

  • Potential software glitch that could disable vehicle brake systems
  • Battery cable rings with excessive glue could cause fires
  • Seat belt pretensioners could emit a hot gas that could cause fires
  • Electronic stability control malfunction
  • Incorrect glass installation (could explode in an impact)
  • Power steering assist system faulty
