GMC Lemon Law Buyback Attorneys

Sick and tired of spending time at the shop trying to get your new or used GMC repaired? Have you wasted time and money, and the car still has the same problem(s)? California’s Lemon Law covers GMC 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 relieve drivers from persistent vehicle problems. What does the Lemon Law do? The simple answer: if you purchased or leased a new or used vehicle in California that is under 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 GMC 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 cumulatively at the dealership for many days. Substantial defects impair the vehicle’s “use, value, and/or safety.”

The manufacturer pays the Gayle Law Group PC when your case is resolved. You are never responsible for any legal fees.

  • A defect that affects a vehicle’s use 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 usually would bring – if the defect weren’t there.
  • Safety defects put the driver, passengers, and other drivers in danger.
The problem does not have to be safety-related to qualify. If your GMC has repeatedly been ‘in the shop’ 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. However, if your GMC has been in ‘the shop’ for more than thirty days, cumulative, regardless of the defect(s), it may qualify as a lemon. Some examples of problems in a GMC vehicle that could be considered substantial are problems involving:
  • Brakes
  • Engines
  • Steering
  • Electrical systems
  • Suspension
  • Air conditioning/heating systems
  • Doors
  • Back up cameras
  • Water leaks
  • Windows
  • Transmissions
It is important to remember that your GMC does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected. Even if your GMC has over 50,000 miles on it, if you took it in for repair while it was still under warranty, it could potentially be considered a lemon.

About GMC

GMC is owned by General Motors and based out of Detroit, Michigan. GMC is the second-highest-selling GM brand. GMC has been one of America’s greatest truck makers for over 100 years – since Max Grabowsky sold his first truck in 1902. GMC currently serves North America and the Middle East and produces about 16 models. Their most popular models include the Sierra, the Canyon, the Terrain, and the Acadia. They are owned by General Motors, the fourth largest car manufacturer in the world, behind Toyota, Volkswagen, and Hyundai/Kia.

Common GMC Vehicle Defects

Although GMC has been producing vehicles for over 100 years, there is still a possibility of a defect. Manufacturing mistakes, disruptions in the system, or design issues, can cause a GMC lemon car to end up being driven off the lot. Numerous possible defects could cause a GMC to be a lemon. Some of the common defects and GM complaints that people have complained about concerning their GMC vehicles include:
  • Transmission problems
  • Airbag issues
  • Fuel tank overflow
  • HVAC system issues
  • Fuel pump issues
  • The speedometer is not working correctly
  • Loud clunking noises from the engines
  • Sputtering
  • Stalling
GMC cars are known to have high safety ratings, and their vehicles have some really impressive safety features. However, they have still had to issue numerous recalls over the years for safety-related and other reasons. Some of the recent recalls GMC has had to issue for some of their vehicles include:
  • Faulty ignition switch
  • Takata airbag inflators can explode
  • The transmission shift cable adjuster could cause a rollaway risk
  • Wiring harness problem that could cause the non-deployment of the side airbags
  • Potential fire risk
  • GMC recently issued recalls for Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 full-sized pickup trucks because of concerns that the roof-rail airbag inflator may deploy without a collision and propel parts into the cabin.

What does a lemon law mean?

Lemon laws protect consumers who have purchased a new or used vehicle that turns out to be significantly faulty. These "lemon cars" cause the purchaser to spend excessive time and money attempting repairs, and the lemon laws provide an avenue to either get financial compensation or a new vehicle.

What is a GMC buyback vehicle?

A GMC buyback vehicle is a vehicle the dealer or manufacturer has repurchased due to significant defects. If you have a defective GMC or other GM vehicle, you can pursue their buyback program. However, they will often try to recommend a trade-in, which in most cases, will result in a significant loss compared to how much you originally paid for the vehicle. Again, an experienced Lemon Car Lawyer can advise you on the best way to pursue compensation.

What can you do if a dealership sells you a bad car?

If you have purchased a bad car (commonly referred to as a "lemon"), you can pursue compensation or a new vehicle under California's Lemon Laws. These laws protect people who have purchased a defective vehicle and have spent too much time and money trying to get it repaired.
