California Lemon Law For GM Vehicles
Most people know General Motors (GM) from its vehicles; however, GM has spent more than a century also making construction equipment and even airplanes. While GM has changed directions over the decades, the company has maintained its focus on manufacturing cars and trucks that millions of people rely on every day. Many models have become classics to consumers to do their performance, while others have shown to be unreliable and defective.
Are you among the many unsatisfied consumers who have purchased a defective GM vehicle? If so, The Barry Law Firm can evaluate your potential lemon law case. Our experienced team can help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to – at no cost to you.
Is Your GM A Lemon?
Your GM vehicle may qualify for a lemon law case if it has had repeated issues effecting its use and/or safety. Another prerequisite is for multiple repair attempts to have been performed while the purchased, leased, or certified pre-owned vehicle was under the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer or dealer cannot fix the problem, even after multiple tries, your GM may be qualified as a lemon.
