If you bought a Chevrolet model that turned out to be a lemon, it’s impossible to enjoy its comfort or convenience. A Chevrolet model can turn out lemon for various reasons, including air conditioning defects, a faulty engine, excessive oil consumption, and fuel pump failure.
Periodically, General Motors issues recalls to fix manufacturer defects. Even so, many recalls fail to solve vehicle defects, leaving consumers confused.
Fortunately, California lemon laws protect consumers who buy defective units that manufacturers have failed to fix after a ‘’reasonable number’’ of repair attempts.
Consider speaking to a trusted lemon law attorney who can guide you on filing for a refund or replacement under lemon laws.
