While General Motors generally maintains a solid reputation for qualify vehicles, we have seen a number of calls on the 1 800 LEMON LAW hotline from Chevrolet Traverse drivers who have been dealing with a barrage of different issues.
Chevrolet Traverse problems have ranged from airbag lights to HVAC problems, traction control issues, on-star and bluetooth defects with calls dropping, steering and alignment issues, fuel injector leaks, water leaks, transmission slipping, no start and loss of power issues, and trunks not closing properly.
If your Traverse is giving you troubles, make sure you bring it to the attention of your GM Dealership’s service department. It is also imperative that you receive a repair invoice each and every time you bring the vehicle in for service. Just because these repairs are covered under warranty does not mean you should not receive paperwork. And try not to allow the dealer to keep repair tickets open or offer to send you the documents. Ideally, you want to keep a file on your own. If you cannot obtain the documents, you should be keeping a log of date, mileage, problem, and fix for each visit. This information will help cement a solid claim under State and Federal Laws.
Depending on the severity of your Chevrolet Traverse problems and your mileage, remedies could include a complete refund, a brand new vehicle, or significant monetary compensation and continued ownership of your Traverse. Best of all, under these Laws, legal help is completely cost-free.
If you feel your Traverse is causing you nothing but trouble, feel free to fill out our Get Rid of Your Lemon form. We will be glad to review your situation and determine and we can help.

Certain problems continue to plague drivers and result in numerous calls to the 1 800 LEMON LAW hotline, among them Hyundai Sonata steering concerns.
As you may have read in our blog, these problems have been causing Hyundai Sonata drivers to veer into other lanes for years. While Hyundai said they addressed the problem by initiating a service campaign to install new suspension struts in affected vehicles, the Hyundai Sonata steering problem continues to plague many vehicles.
Earlier this year, CBS3 Consumer Reporter Jim Donovan investigated the issue and spoke with 1 800 LEMON LAW founding attorney Bob Silverman. You can view the story by clicking here.
If you are having Hyundai Sonata steering problems, make sure you have the matter addressed by a Hyundai-authorized manufacturers dealership. If necessary, take the service adviser for a test drive to illustrate the problem and make sure after each repair that you receive a repair invoice outlining the problem and what was done to address the problem. If you are back to the dealer repeatedly for the Hyundai Sonata steering problem, you need to know your rights under State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Laws.

A Ford F150 EcoBoost engine problem has caused a boost in Ford drivers reaching out to us.
We have seen numerous claims where Ford F150 drivers are experiencing an intermittent stumble or misfire on hard acceleration after driving for an extended period of time at highway speeds. The issue normally occurs when passing another driver on the highway.
The EcoBoost engine relies on turbochargers and advanced fuel injection to achieve torque normally common with engines that have a bigger displacement. Ford has advertised that the EcoBoost V-6 engine used in the F150 model is 365 horsepower, 80 more ponies that the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado V-6.
In addition to this hesitation and loss of power, Ford F150 drivers are also complaining about transmission fluid leaks.
If you are having engine or fluid leak problems with your Ford F150 truck, you need to bring the issue to a Ford authorized dealer as soon as possible. Make sure your problems are fully outlined when dropping your vehicle off and that upon return, your repair invoice articulates the issues you have been dealing with and any solutions or fixes performed.
Once you are in three of more times for an EcoBoost stalling problem, or any other issue, you should certainly contact a Lemon Law Lawyer to discuss your rights to remedy under State Lemon Laws or Federal Warranty Laws. You can also fill out our Get Rid of Your Lemon form and we will be glad to evaluate your claim and put you in touch with someone who may be able to help.
It’s happened twice this week. A distressed driver calls us to discuss a repeated problem they have been having with their car and prior to calling us, they reached out to their State Attorney General. In both cases, the representative who answered the phone at the AG’s office told them they did not have a claim. But, guess what? They did. One even had a claim which falls under Lemon Law parameters and has resulted in other consumers receiving full repurchases for the exact same problem. Needless to say, these drivers were happy they called us.
We want to make it clear we have nothing against the Attorney General’s office. In fact, if we cannot help someone under the laws we work with, we often refer clients to the AG’s office to ensure that there is no other avenue for recourse. There is one State Attorney General office that regularly refers clients to us and we worked hand-in-hand with the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office back in 2001 to rewrite the PA Lemon Law. These are hard-working people who tackle a large workload for the benefits of their constituents. But, they are generalists–they do not handle Lemon Law claims routinely and they have been known frequently to give incorrect information. Most notably, we have seen repeated instances of the AG’s office not telling consumers that even though they do not have a Lemon law claim, they may still be entitled to significant remedy under the Federal Magnuson Moss Warranty Act.
In addition, certain states actually charge a consumers a fee to file their Lemon Law claims through the Attorney General and if they lose, the decision is binding, meaning the consumer is actually losing all of their rights. In these settings, the consumer is going up unrepresented against manufacturer counsel with no real knowledge of the statutes, no expert mechanics, no case law, and they stand to lose all of their rights–how is this fair? And why would any consumer choose to go this route alone when the Lemon Law purposely provides fee-shifting provisions where consumers can have experienced Lemon Law Lawyers and expert mechanics at their disposal at absolutely no cost to them?
If you think you have a Lemon Law claim or breach of warranty claim, reach out to a Lemon Law Attorney in your state and hear what they have to say first. And if they offer 100% free legal representation using the fee-shifting provisions, take advantage of it. You have absolutely nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain!
