Brake, Engine, Transmission Defects in Chevrolet Silverado – Lemon law case
Defects involving brakes, engines, or transmissions are arguably the most dangerous defects a car can have. It would be very unlucky to have those defects in your new vehicle. But, what if you have all three? A Chevrolet customer had this experience with their vehicle, and it could potentially lead to a lawsuit. The situation started when our client purchased a new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado in late 2019. In the following months, their vehicle started showing many defects, such as:
- Brake Issues – The client’s vehicle had many brake problems which had to be repaired multiple times. At first, the brakes made a clicking noise when they were being applied, and the dealership claimed this was a normal noise and not a defect after three repair attempts. Afterwards, the vehicle had to be repaired two other times due to, what was described as, “pulsating” brakes.
- Check Engine Light – Another repeating issue for our client was the appearance of the check engine light. When the vehicle was first taken in for this issue, the dealership blamed a prior recall repair attempt that had caused an issue in the brake system. The second check engine light repair was caused by the client not using the parking brake, according to the dealership. The check engine light also flickered on and off a few times, but the dealership was unable to duplicate this issue so no repair was administered.
- Jolting and Thumping – The client felt different types of turbulence when they were driving their car. For example, the acceleration would pull the car back and forth, the vehicle would jolt and make noise when coming to a stop, and there would be a thumping noise coming from the back of the vehicle when going over bumps and dips.
- Structure Defects – There were many general structural issues that the client noticed in their vehicle, such as the driver and passenger side window rattling up when going up or down, a sun visor being loose and a speaker grill not being aligned properly. There were separate repairs for all of these issues.
