This client took his 2018 Chevrolet Camaro to the repair shop just one month after purchase. The Camaro hesitated when he would press hard on the accelerator.
The check engine light came on and then suddenly turned off. The vehicle was out of service for a day. All repairs according to guidelines from a GM technical service bulletin were completed on the Camaro.
A few weeks later, he brought the vehicle in for repairs again, for the same issue. This time, they recommended that the battery and other components be replaced. The acceleration problem persisted.
Our client took the vehicle to another service provider, who held onto it for seven days for repairs. He was experiencing the same issues with the Camaro, and it appeared to be getting worse. By then, our client had trouble accelerating the vehicle every time he pressed on the accelerator. Intermittingly, the car would refuse to accelerate completely.
Hesitation in vehicles produced by General Motors can be a symptom of the dreaded “Chevy Shake.” This issue affects millions of Buick, GMC, Cadillac and Chevrolet vehicles across the country. Many of these vehicles are equipped with GM’s 8-speed transmission, which has been the subject of multiple class action lawsuits.
Allegedly, defects in the hydraulic system in these transmissions can result in premature transmission failure, producing dangerous driving conditions for owners of affected vehicles. Drivers experience hesitation, violent shaking, hard shifting, sudden deceleration, among other concerns.
The shuddering can be so harsh that some drivers thought they were in an auto accident. Our client’s 2018 Chevrolet Camaro is included in the long list of vehicles that can exhibit these transmission problems. Instead of opting for a class action settlement, our client chose to pursue a lemon law claim.
The Lemon Law Experts were successful in securing an outstanding buyback agreement with GM for the defective 2018 Camaro. GM agreed to cover our client’s monthly payments, down payment, taxes, fees, along with his attorney fees and costs.
Our client was worried that he would be stuck in a car he did not feel safe driving. He is incredibly pleased with the results he achieved thanks to the Lemon Law Experts.
