Chevrolet Lemon Law Explained

A “lemon” refers to a defective car, truck, utility vehicle, or SUV that doesn’t function properly. Common issues include brake squealing, radio screen blackouts, transmission malfunctions, excessive oil consumption, and mechanical or electrical problems. These Chevy vehicles spend more time at the mechanic’s garage than on the road. To determine if you have a Chevy lemon law claim, check to see whether the original Chevrolet warranty still covers your new vehicle. If it does, you’re on the right track. You need one of three specific warranties for used vehicles to make a Chevrolet lemon law claim. Before filing a claim, you must have made a reasonable number of attempts to get your vehicle repaired.

According to California’s lemon law, your Chevy must have nonconformities, which are defects or malfunctions covered by Chevrolet’s  warranty. These nonconformities significantly impair the vehicle’s safety, use, or value. The law doesn’t require the defect to endanger you, so even a defect in the paint finish can be the basis of a lemon law claim.

Common defects that affect safety include:

  • Won’t start
  • Steering issues
  • Poor acceleration
  • Braking problems (not just squeaking)
  • Electrical defects
  • Radio/Navigation defects
  • Mechanical problems
  • Fuel gauges and speedometer don’t work
  • AC does not work
  • Battery dies regularly
  • Door locks don’t work
  • Transmission is not smooth
  • Transmission jerking.
  • Rough shifting between gears
  • Clunking noises when the vehicle or truck shifts.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, you may have a Chevy lemon law claim.

What Kinds of Defects Are Not Covered Under Chevy Lemon Law?

There are some instances when the California lemon law does not apply. These include:

  • Defects caused by a vehicle collision
  • Defects caused by owner abuse, neglect, or poor maintenance
  • Defects arose when an owner tried to repair their vehicle on their own
  • Defects in after-market parts that were added later
  • Minor defects (such as small dents, minor paint scratches, etc.) that can be easily fixed.

When attempting to have your vehicle repaired, it’s very important to take your car or truck to an authorized agent for Chevrolet rather than your independent neighborhood mechanic.

How Does Chevy Lemon Law Buyback Work?

Will Chevrolet Buy Back My Car If it is Defective?

Our attorneys can handle your Chevy lemon law case. We are prepared to face resistance from auto manufacturers who aim to undermine claims and minimize payouts. To succeed in your Chevy lemon law case, you must demonstrate that you made “reasonable attempts” to have the dealership or authorized agent repair the vehicle. It’s crucial to keep receipts, work orders, and used parts as evidence of your repair appointments. While state law doesn’t precisely define “reasonable attempts,” there are guidelines, though these are not set rules. According to the California new-car lemon law, your Chevy may be eligible if:

  • There have been at least two attempted repairs for a defect that could cause death or serious injury.
  • You have brought the Chevy to the dealership at least three to four times for the same defect.
  • The Chevy has been at the dealership for repairs related to the same defect for at least 30 days since you acquired it.

Don’t give up even if your claim does not fit the guidelines above. You may still have a claim.

Available Remedies for a Chevy Lemon Law Claim

If your Chevrolet defect lawyer can establish the vehicle’s defect, you have two main remedies:

  • Repurchase/Buyback: The manufacturer must refund the vehicle’s purchase price, including finance charges, fees, factory options, shipping, taxes, and other applicable costs.
  • Replacement: You typically can receive a similar vehicle without the defect that prompted the legal claim. The manufacturer is responsible for covering taxes and associated fees.

Our Chevy lemon law lawyer can also negotiate a cash settlement for you in certain cases. Referred to as “cash and keep,” the manufacturer provides a lump sum as compensation for the defect, allowing you to retain ownership of the vehicle.
