Our client’s 2016 Chevrolet Colorado underwent multiple repairs and replacements, all completed with less than 30,000 miles on the vehicle’s odometer. After owning the vehicle for just three months, our client began noticing transmission issues in the new vehicle. 

He took the 2016 Colorado in for a repair visit after he had trouble removing the key from the ignition switch. Two months following that visit, the vehicle began leaking coolant and transmission fluid. Our client took the Colorado in for repair two more times for these concerns.

In total, our client’s vehicle was repaired nine times. Our client was frustrated that there seemed to be no solution for the lemon issues he was dealing with in his vehicle. 

Unfortunately, transmission problems in newer Chevrolet vehicles are not uncommon. Allegedly, several GM model vehicles are equipped with defective transmission systems that are prone to shaking, shuddering, transmission failure, fluid leaks, stalling and various other symptoms. 

8-speed transmission systems appear to wear prematurely due to issues with the hydraulic system that cause the gears to grind down- trapping metal shavings inside the transmission. The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado is among a long list of potentially affected Chevrolet, Cadillac, and GMC models. The lemon problems our client encountered were mostly transmission related.

With help from the Lemon Law Experts, the client was able to get rid of his defective Chevrolet Colorado and find a new car that was free from lemon issues. His outcome was stellar and much more than he initially expected. 

General Motors agreed to buy back the 2016 Colorado and pay for all costs associated with the  lemon, including the client’s attorney fees, and costs. The client was incredibly thrilled with the outcome.
