This Riverside lemon law client purchased her used 2012 Buick Lemon Lacrosse with approximately 47,000 miles on it. Within the first 1,000 miles of purchasing this Buick Lacrosse, it was back in the shop at an authorized GM dealership for repairs related to the check engine light illuminating, the vehicle shaking excessively, and the vehicle jerking when shifting. Given the fact that her car was used coupled with the high mileage on the car when purchased, this lemon law client was reluctant to do anything. After prodding from her son to do something about her car, she finally reached out to the Lemon Law Experts of Consumer Law Experts for help with her lemon law claim.
Upon contacting the lemon law attorneys at Consumer Law Experts, this client was thrilled to learn that the lemon laws apply to used vehicles and that the Lemon Law Experts would gladly represent her in a lemon law claim against General Motors. Within 20 days of contacting her lemon law attorneys, this client was excited to learn that GM agreed to repurchase her used Buick lemon. GM offered to buy back her car pursuant to the California lemon law. General Motors agreed to take back the Buick lemon, payoff the balance of the loan, refund her monies spent, and even pay her lemon law attorneys fees and costs.
The morale of this lemon law success story is that the lemon law applies to USED cars. If you purchased a used car with a warranty, you have lemon law rights. If your used car is subject to multiple repairs at an authorized dealership, much like this Buick lemon law client, you could have a valid lemon law claim against the dealer and/or vehicle manufacturer. In order to understand your lemon law rights with regard to your used vehicle, it is important to discuss your vehicle’s issues with an attorney who specializes in lemon law. Thanks to the Lemon Law Experts of Consumer Law Experts, this lemon law client is happily out of her used car and is now cruising the streets of Corona in a new, safe and reliable vehicle.
