After giving the Chevrolet dealership four times to try and fix his defective 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, our client called our office for a free consultation and to retain our firm.
- His first visit on January 2, 2020 was for a brake system malfunction warning light. His other concern was regarding a potential seatbelt pretensioner fire that GM had issued a recall on (Product Safety Recall N192270600).
- His second visit was in March as water was leaking in above the middle of the rear window. He also had another brake system malfunction warning light on. They were able to complete the recall for the potential seatbelt pensioner fire.
- His third visit was on March 17th and the authorized GM dealership had the vehicle for 44 days. Our client had taken it in for two complaints. The first was water leaking into the cab above the rear window so when it rained the water would leak through the sliding window casing. The other problem was the cover on the steering column was loose.
- The last visit to the General Motors dealership was in May and was for another 24 days with them working on the headliner as it had water damage from a leak at the rear window.
A demand was filed on our clients behalf to repurchase the defective vehicle under the California Lemon Law. General Motors agreed to repurchase the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. They paid off the balance of the vehicle, and reimbursed our client for the down payment, registration, monthly payments, less the mileage fee allowed under the California Lemon Law. They paid all attorney fees. We were also able to get additional fees for our client.
You don’t have to go through the lemon law process by yourself.
