GMC Lemon Law Tips

If you think your GMC vehicle might be a lemon, you might be wondering what, if anything, you can do about it. You have rights and protections under California’s lemon law; however, you must take certain steps to exercise them. These crucial steps include:

  • Taking your GMC vehicle to an authorized GMC repair shop or dealership
  • Providing a detailed description of what its issues are and ensuring they are thoroughly documented on the repair invoice
  • Keep a copy of that repair invoice along with any other repair or maintenance documentation for your GMC vehicle
  • Contact the Law Office of Michael Humphries for further assistance

Common Defects with GMC Vehicles

We all want to find the perfect car that never has any problems. However, even the most dependable automakers have produced vehicles that suffer from the same issues every year. Who wants to end up with a car that requires repeated or expensive repairs? Likely, no one.

  • An increased likelihood of experiencing more issues at lower mileage
  • Stability control system malfunctions,
  • Poor lighting and headlight visibility
  • Excessive oil consumption
  • A/C and HVAC problems
  • Engine problems
  • Faulty power steering
  • Exhaust leaks

What if GMC or the GMC Dealer is Unable to Repair Your Vehicle?

Your dealership might apologize and hope you go away not knowing about your rights. However, California law provides that if your dealership or manufacturer can’t fix your vehicle within a “reasonable” number of attempts, they must give you the option of either a full refund of your purchase price or another vehicle at no cost to you.

What is a “Reasonable” Number of Repair Attempts?

Unfortunately, the lemon law in California doesn’t specify a “reasonable” number of attempts. However, in general, the following guidelines define when it’s no longer feasible for the dealer or manufacturer to keep trying to fix the vehicle:

  • You have given them four or more attempts to fix the same issue
  • Your GMC vehicle’s issues might result in severe or fatal bodily injury if it’s driven and they have made a minimum of two unsuccessful repair attempts
  • Your vehicle has been in a repair shop for 30 days or longer (not required to be consecutive) for repairs of problems that should be covered under its warranty
