Many GMC leasers and owners of some of the brands most popular and relatively new vehicles, including their Yukon, Denali, Canyon, and Sierra models manufactured between 2017 – 2020 have been causing their drivers’ significant stress and constant trips to dealerships or repair shops to fix mechanical problems that just keep coming back.
At the Lemon Law Now, our California lemon law attorney wants each of our residents to know they do not have to suffer through ongoing repair attempts that fail to fix the vehicle’s safety defects, which places your physical wellbeing and overall livelihood in jeopardy each time you get behind the wheel.
What Are the Most Common California GMC Models Experiencing Manufacturer Defects?
Individuals who purchased or leased certain GMC models from 2017-2020 have experienced significant defects that require extended maintenance and repair appointments that are not producing permanent fixes.
Those models include:
- GMC Yukon/Yukon XL
- GMC Sierra
- GMC Yukon Denali/Denali XL
- GMC Canyon
What Are the Most Common Manufacturer Defects for these GMC Models in California?
There are many common signs that your vehicle might be a lemon and, unfortunately, there is no hard rule that says “this” type of defective component makes your vehicle eligible to pursue a lemon law claim in California.
However, owners of the previously listed GMC vehicle models complain of abrupt, hard shifts when accelerating or decelerating that causes hesitation, shaking, shuddering, and jerking when the automatic transmission changes gears.
Have you experienced any of the following issues with your GMC?
- Transmission jerking and hesitation
- Transmission failure
- Brake booster malfunction
- Engine stalling/misfires
Even though these vehicles are still under warranty, and may not cost the owners or leasers out of pocket expenses to undergo repairs, the time and energy they spend without the vehicles can cause significant trouble in both their personal and professional lives that only a cash settlement or replacement vehicle can fully resolve.
When that is the case, our California lemon law attorney can help you pursue the recovery solutions you are entitled to, so you can put this vehicle’s troubles behind you.
What Recovery Solutions Am I Entitled to if My Car is Deemed a Lemon in California?
