These lawsuits match our firm’s observation of numerous individual lemon law cases in which our clients have experienced jerking, hesitation, surging and lurching, which are are safety hazards because they affect the vehicle’s speed, acceleration and deceleration. Additionally, our clients have experienced a number of other issues with these vehicles, particularly related to the powertrain (i.e., engine and transmission), electrical system and infotainment system (i.e., back-up camera/navigation display).
Remember, under the right circumstances, class actions can either help and hurt the value of your individual claim. In most cases where lemon law rights are released in a class action settlement, your individual lemon law claim is more valuable than the class settlement proceeds, which may only be for a coupon toward a new purchase or an “extended warranty.”
Even worse, auto manufacturers often place time limits or other restrictions on the class settlement proceeds that prevent people from receiving anything in exchange for their released claims.
On the other hand, if you have a good lemon law claim you may be entitled to receive all your money back, or more, and your attorney’s fees are paid by the manufacturer because of the FEE SHIFTING PROVISION in California’s lemon law which allows us to take the case at no charge to you. If you have a good case we will front the costs and our time, and we only get paid by the manufacturer if we achieve a recovery for you.
If you have questions about a class action, or you think you may have a lemon, contact us today for a fast, free and confidential evaluation.
We have noticed a trend in potential lemon law issues in recent model year Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trucks. The current version of these mid-size pickup trucks was launched for model year 2015.
Many of these trucks have exhibited transmission problems, with the following descriptions:
|Will not downshift||Losing ability to drive forward (reverse only)|
|Stuck in gear||Transmission failure|
There have also been other noted problems in these trucks, especially with the power steering, engine, fuel system and exhaust system, among others.
Additionally, there have been Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) and Recalls issued which affect these concerns, and prove that GM is aware of them.
You may have lemon law rights if you have had as few as two complaints for these issues, or for any other problems.
If you think your truck may be a lemon, contact us today for a fast, free and confidential analysis.
