At Shainfeld Law, our California lemon law attorney knows General Motors Company (GMC) is responsible for manufacturing some of the country’s most popular vehicles, including those that fall under the Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, and Buick nameplates.

GMC Vehicle

Unfortunately, not all their vehicles are as reliable as many once believed. GMC took spot number five on the list of the most recalled car brands last year, with a total of 22, impacting 1,993,285 vehicles. This number makes up 10% of the GMC vehicles on the roadways. The biggest recall was due to an airbag defect impacting more than one million vehicles.

While not all vehicle defects rise to the level of a nationwide recall, they still leave vehicle owners spending more time in the dealership than they do behind the wheel.

According to the California Lemon Law, if your vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s warranty and cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts, you may be entitled to a legal remedy that fits your needs. Our San Diego-Chula Vista-Carlsbad area lemon lawyer can help, starting with a free consultation.
