When you purchase or lease a new GMC vehicle, you assume you are paying for a good-quality, safe product. You should be able to count on the warranty that came with the car; if something is defective, the manufacturer should remedy it, according to the terms of the agreement. In fact, manufacturers must uphold any warranties they’ve given consumers – not only because it’s ethical, but also because the law mandates it.
If you have a new GMC vehicle with a defect or nonconformity that the manufacturer can’t fix, you might have a legal course of action to take to get your money back. To determine eligibility and to begin resolving your issue, contact The Lemon Law Experts for a free case evaluation.
Do you have a GMC lemon?
Each state provides Lemon Laws, or rules that protect consumers when they buy defective products that are under warranty. Similarly, there are also federal consumer protection laws that apply to some Lemon Law cases. If you answer yes to the following questions, it’s likely that you’ve been saddled with a GMC lemon and have a legal right to pursue compensation for your losses.
- Is your car relatively new? (What’s deemed “new” varies by state. In California, for instance, it means that the car has less than 18,000 miles or was purchased under 18 months ago.)
- Is there something wrong with your car that impairs its use, value, or safety?
- Did you notify the manufacturer of the need for repair? (Some states require that you notify the manufacturer in writing.)
- Have you taken the car to the dealer or authorized repair shop on several occasions to repair the defect and it’s still not fixed?

If an entire line of cars or a particular model has a defect, the manufacturer is mandated by federal law to recall and remedy the issue. Likewise, if a particular vehicle (such as your GMC truck) has a defect that’s covered under warranty, the manufacturer must, by law, amend it. If the manufacturer is unable to do so, it must repurchase the vehicle from you.
Free Legal Representation Lemon Law Claimants
If you think you have a GMC lemon, your first priority will be to consult a Lemon Law attorney to discuss your case. Don’t make the mistake of not taking action because you think you cannot afford a lawyer. On the contrary, if you win your case, the manufacturer will be responsible for paying your legal fees – not you. So you essentially have absolutely nothing to lose, and the cost of your vehicle to gain.
Specifically, if you and your lawyer successfully substantiate your case, you will be entitled to the cost of your vehicle (minus a minimal amount for the mileage you’ve used), tax, licensing and registration fees you’ve paid, and any repair work you’ve paid out-of-pocket.

“After a lengthy process of being shuffled between GM and the dealership we contacted Shainfeld & Anvar. Brett Shainfeld was so patient with us, explaining our case and the steps that needed to be taken to get us out of our unsafe Cadillac. He consistently kept us current and in less than 2 months (which included the holidays) the case was successfully settled. We were able to use our returned down payment to purchase a car we feel comfortable driving our grandchildren in. We are so grateful for Shainfeld & Anvar and highly recommend them to others!”
