Some of the most common defects reported with Chevrolet vehicles involve the engine, ignition switches, transmission, steering system, electrical system, cooling system, and airbags. If a defect is a substantial impairment to the use, value, or safety of the motor vehicle, the consumer is entitled to financial compensation or another resolution from the automobile manufacturer in California under the Lemon Law.

Recent Chevrolet Recalls

A recall is a notice that warns the public of a safety issue or significant defect with a product. To find out if your Chevrolet vehicle is involved in a recall, you can use the NHTSA’s online VIN search tool. You can also use Chevrolet’s GM Recall Search Tool. Recent Chevrolet and GM recalls include:

  • 2021 Yukon, Yukon XL, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade, and Cadillac Escalade ESV vehicles: daytime running lights may not deactivate and could cause a glare or reduced visibility.
  • 2013-2015 Chevrolet Spark and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Spark EV vehicles: secondary hood latch failure could result in the vehicle’s hood opening unexpectedly while driving.
  • 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, and GMC Acadia: airbag inflator may explode during deployment, potentially causing serious or fatal injuries due to metal fragments striking the driver or occupants.

Note that your Chevrolet vehicle does not have to currently be part of a recall to qualify you for a resolution under the California Lemon Law. You also do not have to act within 18,000 miles or 18 months of the vehicle’s delivery to be eligible for a remedy.
