Top 8 Buick Issues
Auto manufacturers will sometimes release faulty cars, trucks and other vehicles to the public. Buick is no exception. Owners of Buick vehicles should look out for the following signs:
- ◦ Transmission Hesitates
- ◦ Lack of Acceleration
- ◦ Check Engine Light
- ◦ Vehicle Fails to Start
- ◦ Coolant Leaks
- ◦ Hard Gear Shifting
- ◦ Power Window Failure
- ◦ Battery Dies Frequently
If these symptoms or any other vehicle problems repeatedly appear, your Buick may be a lemon. Learn more about what the lemon law can do for you. If you want to seek legal remedies from your auto manufacturer, consult an attorney to discuss your lemon law rights.
How Does The Lemon Law Protect My Buick?
Your faulty vehicle may qualify as a “lemon” under the California Lemon Law if it has repeated problems that won’t disappear after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
The California Lemon Law considers vehicle problems to be defects if they negatively impact the vehicles’ use, safety or value. It does not set a number that is considered “reasonable.”
If you’d like to know whether you have had a reasonable number of repair attempts, consult with our lemon law attorneys about your case.
Under the California Lemon Law, consumers are eligible for three possible remedies: cash compensation, a replacement vehicle, or a full refund for their vehicle, minus an amount called the “mileage offset.” Monetary compensation usually includes attorneys’ fees and costs.
The statute of limitations is four years from when you first discover a potential defect in your vehicle. If you think your Buick is a lemon, don’t hesitate. Buick, like other auto manufacturers, has a track record of misconduct against consumers. You just might be one of them.
Buick, Consumer Rights and Lemon Law
A class action lawsuit filed against General Motors alleges that some vehicles stalled, experienced reduced power and even failed to start. California consumers behind this lawsuit allege that these defects stem from faulty fuse blocks that may disrupt the distribution of electrical power throughout the vehicles. General Motors allegedly knew about this defect since at least November 2019. Affected Buick models include 2013–2017 Buick Enclave vehicles.
Buick’s parent company only recently settled a notorious multi-district litigation that had tainted the company’s reputation when consumers initially filed in 2014. According to the litigation, General Motors installed faulty ignition switches that shut off engines and disabled safety mechanisms while the vehicles were still in motion. General Motors allegedly knew about the defect ten years prior to the filing of the litigation. That same year, General Motors recalled over 30 million vehicles across the globe. The faulty ignition switches are connected to more than 100 deaths. Affected Buick models include Buick LaCrosse vehicles of varying model years.
