We have started getting calls on the 1 800 LEMON LAW hotline from distressed drivers complaining of a Chevrolet Sonic starting problem. They will be at home or in a parking lot when all of a sudden the car will not start leaving the driver stranded. And what makes matters worse is that GM service advisers do not have any current solution for the problem. They are encouraging Sonic drivers to lock and unlock their car repeatedly to get the car moving. This is certainly not what you want to hear when you purchase a brand new car.
We have heard from folks who have been advised not to drive with key cards in their pockets or park next to cars with large antennas. What? We heard about another situation where the car has been out of service for months because every time they start the Sonic up, it stalls again.
If you are suffering with Chevrolet Sonic starting problems, it is important that you report the issue to a GM authorized dealer each and every occurrence, and if necessary have the car towed in to see if they can verify or duplicate the problem. Do not settle for the lock/unlock remedy. Make sure they look at the car thoroughly and that you receive a repair invoice each and every time you report the issue. If you are back in for Chevrolet Sonic stalling problems three or more times, or your Sonic is in a shop for an extended period of time, it is important that you contact a Lemon Law Lawyer to discuss your rights under State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Laws. You may be able to get a complete refund and legal help is free.
