GMC Lemon Law Buyback

Sick and tired of spending time at the shop trying to get your new or used GMC vehicle repaired? Do you feel like you have wasted far too much time and money? California’s Lemon Law covers GMC vehicles, and it could be the way to either get your money back or get yourself into a new vehicle!

What is the Lemon Law?

Lemon Laws are designed to protect people who have purchased cars that fail to meet the necessary safety or other performance standards. Many Californians are either unaware that California has a Lemon Law or, for a variety of reasons, falsely believe that this set of laws will not provide them with any rights as consumers. California actually has an incredibly consumer-friendly Lemon Law that protects both buyers and lessees of new and used vehicles. The Lemon Law applies to cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, motor homes, and registered motorcycles purchased both for personal as well as business use.


Does My GMC Qualify As A Lemon?

In order for your GMC vehicle to qualify as a lemon under the California Lemon Law, the issues you are facing with your GMC must be considered substantial. This means that the problems must substantially impact the use, value, and/or safety of your GMC vehicle. A common misconception is that in order for a GMC or other vehicle to qualify as a lemon, the problems must impact the safety of the vehicle. This is not true. 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
  • Windows
  • Transmissions
  • Doors
  • Back up cameras
  • Water leaks

There are several possible scenarios that would qualify your GMC vehicle for monetary recovery or vehicle replacement under the California Lemon Law. It is important to remember that your GMC does not have to be brand new, or have incredibly low mileage in order to be protected. Even if your GMC has over 50,000 miles on it, if you took it in for repairs while it was still under warranty it could still potentially be considered a lemon. Technically, even if it is no longer under warranty there is still a possibility of qualifying if there is an ongoing problem that required it to be in the shop several times prior to the expiration of the warranty.

Additionally, your GMC vehicle could qualify as a lemon if it has been in the shop for an excessive number of days since you took possession of the car – even if all of the repairs have been for separate issues. A GMC vehicle that needs to be constantly repaired for different issues can often qualify as substantially impaired under the Lemon Law.

An experienced Lemon Car Lawyer will be able to advise you on the best way to pursue compensation.
