Is your Cadillac a lemon?

If your Cadillac is exhibiting defects that you haven’t been able to repair, even after a repeated number of visits to mechanics or the dealership, you may have a Cadillac lemon on your hands. The good news is that the California Cadillac lemon law is here to protect you in the event of manufacturing defects, whether these are the results of Cadillac recalls or just a faulty car that’s still under warranty. With one call to us, you can get a free consultation that will help determine if you purchased a lemon and whether or not you’re entitled to a Cadillac lemon buyback or other forms of compensation.

How Lemon Law Now Can Help You With Your Cadillac Lemon Law Claim

Cadillac Lemon Law

While there are Cadillac lemon laws in place to protect you from eating the costs of lemon, these Cadillac lemon laws can be intricate and often vary from state to state. Additionally, a Cadillac manufacturer can fight back against your Cadillac lemon law claims, regardless of whether your car meets lemon law criteria or not. That’s why it’s important to hire an attorney who is highly experienced in these types of cases. Remember, at Lemon Law Now, we have a 99% success rate, and you’ll never pay out of pocket for legal fees.

Cadillac Lemon Buyback

Cadillac lemon buybacks are another retribution option in these cases that Lemon Law-Now can guide you through. There’s no reason not to pursue the Cadillac lemon buyback you deserve through your Cadillac lemon law claim.

When have a “reasonable number” of repairs been made on your Cadillac?

In Cadillac lemon law, we say that your Cadillac may be a lemon after a “reasonable number” of repair attempts have been made to no avail. What constitutes a “reasonable number?” Lemon law varies from state to state, but in California a reasonable number falls somewhere between two and four repair attempts, depending on the issue. In order to file a claim and qualify for a Cadillac lemon law buyback, one of the following scenarios must occur:

  • You’ve tried two or more repair attempts for an issue that could result in death or serious injury.
  • You’ve tried four or more repair attempts for basic warranty issues that are less severe.
  • Your car has been undrivable for at least 30 days due to these defects, or the attempted repair of them.

Recent Cadillac Recalls

Ever open up the mailbox, find an envelope from the auto dealership with the word ‘RECALL’ stamped on the front, and think to yourself, “Oh great, that’s going in the ‘When I get around to it’ pile”? With how busy our day-to-day lives can be, it’s astonishing how easy it is to think, “Well, I’ll just bring it up at my next vehicle service. That should be fine to wait.” Unfortunately, in this scenario, what’s easy isn’t exactly what is best.

The fact of the matter is that recalls are issued not just to protect the integrity of an automaker, but to protect the lives of their customers as they travel the roads. Many recalls carry with them no symptoms at all, or at least that would be recognizable by customers. Some may seem fairly innocuous. Regardless of the circumstance, know that a recall is issued with your safety in mind and you should exercise great caution to have the malfunction remedied immediately.

So how to recalls work? When automotive makers learn from their dealerships that parts on their vehicles are malfunctioning in abnormal conditions, they investigate to search for patterns. Typically this involves a combination of both examining the issue itself, as well as looking at manufacturing dates and locations to determine a frame of reference for the problem’s origins. Once the problem is pinpointed, the automaker issues a recall or the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) will issue one in conjunction.

As is typically the case with a recall, customers are simply required to contact their nearest dealership, notify of the recall concern and schedule a time to have the vehicle seen. The maintenance is almost always free of cost to customers. Automotive makers want to ensure your safety on the road as well as the safety prestige of their company.

Even high-end vehicles like Cadillac’s aren’t immune to a recall notice. Here are some recent Cadillac recalls:

2018 Cadillac CT6 Recall

General Motors recalled certain 2018-2019 Cadillac CT6’s for second-row or third-row rear seat belt retractor assemblies not automatically lock when the seat belt is fully pulled out of the retractor. This can inhibit the proper installation of child seats, and violates Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) #208, “Occupant Crash Protection”. On November 7, 2018, GM began notifying Cadillac customers of the recall (#18315) so that they may inspect and replace, if necessary, the rear seat belt retractors.

Cadillac Recalls 53,000+ 2014-2016 CTS Sedans for Damaged Seat Heaters

According to documents filed with the NHTSA, Cadillac is recalling CTS sedans from 2014-2016 due to the possibility of cold outdoor temperatures leading to heated seats turning on automatically when the remote-start function is engaged. In the event that the heaters are further malfunctioning, this can lead to them turning on when no one is in the Cadillac, overheating and causing a fire. GM is notifying Cadillac owners of the recall, but given the date of the Cadillacs, if you bought it second hand you should reach out to your nearest Cadillac dealership to see if your Cadillac falls under the recall notice.

I spoke directly to Mr. Shainfeld who helped guide me through the lemon law process. He was always responsive to me both via phone and emails. He was prompt and professional. Hopefully I do not have any further issues with my car in the future, but if I do I will contact Shainfeld Law.

Brett and his team was truly amazing to work with. From my very first contact through their chat capabilities on their website to the very last conversation with Brett.

Brett and his team made everything so easy to understand and seamless.

Most Helpful Lemon Lawyer

Brett was truly amazing to work with. Everything was so easy — from our initial call to the very last conversation.  This was our very first lemon claim (2018 Audi e-tron) and was slightly intimidated by what the process could be and didn’t know what to expect.

Everything Was So Easy

After the torture we went through with our dealership on our Lemon Law car and the subsequent challenge of trying to find a responsive, knowledgeable attorney to represent our case, we were at our wit’s end and highly skeptical when we found Brett Shainfeld. However, we found Brett to be clear, communicative, immediately responsive and confident. He adapted quickly to our preferred mode of communication (electronic or voicemail, rather than live discussions), and consistently kept us informed as to what was happening with our case, as well as what to expect next. And the best part is that he successfully negotiated our case with the manufacturer.

Great Experience
