Our client leased a 2017 GMC Yukon. After trying unsuccessfully eight times to have his vehicle repaired, he called our law office for advice and to retain our firm.
In April 2017 he took it to an authorized GMC dealership because the airbag light was on. In May he returned to the dealership because he had hot air coming out of the air conditioner and a loud crunching noise in the dash. His third visit was on account of the vehicle making a loud popping/clicking noise while making a turn. In September the Yukon was in due to it was leaking an oily fluid which was coming from the front wheel area. The next visit was in January 2018 because the vehicle had lost power at an intersection and had to be pushed and towed. His sixth visit was in May – the brake light was not working. In September he brought his Yukon in due to the air conditioning was blowing hot air again. His last visit to the dealership was in December 2018 because of a loud tapping noise from the right. We analyzed our client’s potential lemon law case by reviewing all the repair orders and determined that he had a valid claim under the California lemon law to have the vehicle repurchased.
We sent a demand letter to the manufacturer and demanded that they buy back the vehicle under the California Lemon Law. General Motors Corporation agreed to repurchase the defective 2017 GMC Yukon, pay off the balance on the lease and reimburse our client for the down payment, monthly payments, less a mileage fee allowed under the California Lemon Law. The also paid the attorney fees. We were also able to get additional compensation for our client.
