One of our clients had recently purchased a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse which developed several issues related to the rack and pinion steering, headlamps, and climate control system. The vehicle also started leaking oil. The dealer tried unsuccessfully to repair these concerns on at least nine (9) separate occasions totaling 56 days out of service. After many weeks of frustration and inconvenience, paying for insurance, and being without his car the client researched the California lemon law on the internet, and contacted us to ask us to help him get rid of the vehicle and have it repurchased by the manufacturer.
We sent a demand to the manufacturer based on the vehicle qualifying as a lemon under the California lemon law statute and within several weeks were able to negotiate a full repurchase of the vehicle. Our client was able to recover his down payment and almost two years of monthly payments, plus get the manufacturer to pay off the balance of his loan.

Every automobile manufacturer is subject to repeated problems related to the safety, value, or use of their vehicles, and Chevrolet is no exception. There have been over 16,000 complaints on file for Chevy vehicles, with the Impala, Malibu, Silverado, Trailblazer, Cavalier, Equinox and Cobalt topping the list. Some of these problem are as simple as updates to the owners manual, but many of them can seriously affect the safety of the vehicle, putting the vehicle occupants and others on the road in danger.
In order to protect consumers against defective vehicles, the federal government enacted the Magnusson Moss Act. Every state has their own version of the lemon laws, and California is no exception. California’s Lemon Laws were enacted in 1970 and were founded in the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act. The law states that if a manufacturer cannot fix a defective car, truck, boat, RV, motor home, or motorcycle after a reasonable number of repair attempts, the vehicle must be replaced or refunded. Generally, the manufacturer is responsible to re-purchase or replace the defective vehicle.
