The Safety of GMC Vehicles

GMC is a division of General Motors that manufactures and sells a variety of pickup trucks, vans, and SUVs. Some of the popular GMC vehicles on the road include the Sierra pickup line, Hummers, Yukon and Acadia SUVs, and the Savana line, which is generally used for commercial purposes. 

While GMC markets its vehicles as being tough, durable, and reliable, these vehicles can have serious problems that require costly and inconvenient repairs. If your GMC vehicle is under warranty and you are experiencing a defect that cannot be repaired, reach out to a California lemon law attorney as soon as possible to learn about your rights. 

GMC Recalls

Not every GMC vehicle defect results in a widespread recall, but recalls often indicate that a particular vehicle might have inherent problems for new owners. The following are the most commonly recalled GMC vehicles:

  • Yukon = 50 recalls
  • Savana = 50 recalls
  • Sierra 1500 = 28 recalls
  • Envoy = 28 recalls
  • Jimmy = 24 recalls
  • Sierra 2500 = 23 recalls
  • Canyon = 20 recalls
  • Acadia = 20 recalls
  • Sonoma = 19 recalls
  • Sierra 3500 = 18 recalls
  • Suburban = 17 recalls
  • Safari = 17 recalls
  • Terrain = 13 recalls
  • Envoy XL = 8 recalls

Recent recalls have been for defective seat belts, intermittent power steering loss, battery drainage and fire risks, and other issues. If your vehicle is subject to a recall, you should never ignore the matter and get the problem repaired right away, which should be at no cost to you. 

Other GMC Issues

Some GMC vehicles have problems outside of recalls, and owners might spend a lot of time and energy trying to repair the issue. If this happens and you cannot get your vehicle fixed, you might have a lemon law claim. 

Some of the common complaints about GMC vehicles that lead to lemon law claims include:

  • Engine stalling while driving
  • Transmission failure
  • Shifting up and down too hard
  • Excessive consumption of oil
  • Jerking of the vehicle while driving
  • “Check engine” light keeps coming on
  • Sudden and unexpected deceleration
  • Transmission fluid leaks
  • Steering oil leaks
  • Motor oil leaks
  • Coolant leaks

All of these can put your vehicle in the shop, and if the shop cannot fix the problem, you might need to seek legal relief by filing a lemon law claim. 

GMC Lemon Law Claims

Through a lemon law claim, you can seek the replacement of your GMC lemon or a refund for the vehicle, as well as compensation for any losses you experienced due to the vehicle’s problems. Even though California’s lemon law protects consumers with lemons, proving your claim can be a complex and technical matter. 

GMC has legal teams ready to fight against liability for lemons, so you want your own attorney protecting your rights and evening the playing field.

    "Pleased with the Service"

    Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.

    "Beyond Satisfied"

    I am beyond satisfied. After being told that I did not have a case by other attorneys, I was referred to Ms. Campbell and I am so glad I called her. During the initial consultation, Ms. Campbell was very thorough and answered all of my concerns. She assured me that this was not an overnight fix, however, it took less than three (3) months to resolve. Ms. Campbell was available every step of the way. I rarely called or emailed her because she always kept me in the loop. Every case is different but I am glad mine was quick and painless. I would recommend LemonLaw123 to anyone without any reservations. I could not have asked for better representation. Thank you!!!!
