Are GM Drivers Still Protected Under The Lemon Law?

June 01, 2009
By: Robert Silverman

Good news for GM Owners–In the company’s proposed Master Transaction Agreement, it specifically says that GM “will continue to accept all liabilities under express written and limited new vehicle warranties, certified used vehicle warranties, and pre-owned vehicles warranties delivered in connection with the sale of new, certified used, or pre-owned vehicles manufactured or sold by Sellers or Purchaser prior to or after the closing.”

What does that mean exactly?  It means that unlike the previous Chrysler bankruptcy, where lemon law representation was temporarily stayed and settlement checks were bounced, General Motors is still devoted to assisting any clients who suffer repeated problems under warranty, knowing that continued customer loyalty will result in a resurgence of the brand.

Our Firm is still handling lemon law and breach of warranty claims for all General Motors drivers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Ohio, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. We have a system in place where we can advocate quickly for our clients’ rights, with cases being expedited efficiently.  We have been assured that GM is committed to making sure this continues and we applaud the company for continuing to make consumers’ rights a priority.

    Are you saying that cases can go forward without moving to modify the automatic stay imposed by section 362 of the bankruptcy code?

      Our firm has been moving full speed ahead with our GM cases through pre-litigation program, with most being resolved to the client’s satisfaction very quickly. We also have a plan in place to litigate those claims not settled once the restructuring is completed. Bob Silverman has been assured by GM that they will continue to work with us and our clients during this transition.

        I would like to know if a Gm Certified truck is cover under the lemon law in Delaware, I have been back to the dealer twice on the back of a tow truck, and three other times for a different issue,
        The first time was the battery towed, the second time the lifter went half the engine needed to be torn down to replace the lifters towed, now the tire monitoring system keeps coming on they said that they replace the sensors this will be the third time,
        I just picked up the truck 06/26/2013 and drove it home, then went to go to work the next morning and this is back on again, now I need to take this back to the dealer again to fix this issues, this will be the third time for this one.
