Chevy’s motto used be “Chevy runs deep” but recently that has been replaced with “Find new roads.” Chevrolet is an American brand that prides itself on class cars and trucks that provide their customers a sweet ride. Unfortunately, this is not always the case with all Chevrolet vehicles. Some vehicles are leaving customers a sour taste in their mouth and would be considered a Chevrolet lemon under both state and federal laws. While each state has its own set of lemon laws, the lemon law in essence states that if your vehicle has a substantial impairment to the safety, use of value of your vehicle, and Chevrolet cannot repair it in a reasonable number of repair attempts then you might be driving a Chevrolet lemon.
Determining if your Chevrolet is a Lemon
A Chevrolet lemon law claim covers both new and used vehicles, as well as vehicles that are leased or purchased, so long as there are repair attempts while under the Chevrolet manufacturer’s warranty. Lemon Law claims have been brought for many Chevrolet models, including the Chevrolet Corvette, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Impala, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Traverse, Chevrolet Silverado and Chevrolet Volt. The issues include, but are not limited to:
- Transmission slipping
- Engine leaking oil
- Excessive wind noise from the roof
- A clunking noise from engine
- Transmission slamming into gear
- A delay/hesitation when shifting
- A rough idle
- An excessive vibration from engine and/or transmission
- Airbag light illuminating
- Air conditioner being inoperable
- Navigation system going blank
- Power steering failure
- A popping sound when turning
Your Chevrolet Lemon Law Rights
If you have experienced any of these issues with your Chevrolet vehicle and have taken it back to the manufacturer for repair it is possible that your vehicle could be a lemon. It is often asked:
- What if my vehicle did not go back right away?
- What if the manufacturer says the problems with my vehicle are normal?
- What if I am now out of warranty?
- What if the manufacturer could not find any problem?
- What if the manufacturer finally fixed the issue?
- What if I cannot afford an attorney?
All these are good questions that should be answered by a lemon law attorney. But quite simply, it does not matter the current mileage on your car, if the problem has been fixed/identified or deemed normal by the manufacturer. The lemon law states that the manufacturer gets a reasonable opportunity to repair your Chevrolet lemon, not an unlimited number of bites at the apple, so to speak. This means if your vehicle has been in for multiple repair attempts and it is finally fixed, you are not precluded from bringing a lemon law claim. Additionally, the lemon law requires the manufacturer to pay reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, so the question of I cannot afford an attorney should not be a concern.
