Ranch Club Holdings LLC v. General Motors, LLC/ Alameda County Superior Court Case No. 22CV005876

The Lemon Law Department at Rosner Barry & Babbitt’s Auto Fraud Legal Center is actively pursuing General Motors regarding an allegedly defective 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which our client purchased new from Dublin Chevrolet in January 2021. Our client’s Escalade had defects that needed repair shortly after purchase. These defects included headlights, suspension, and a bent pushrod in the engine. After four (4) repair visits within approximately 7,500 miles, in May 2021, our client demanded General Motors repurchase the Escalade. General Motors did not.

A manufacturer has a statutory duty to “promptly” repurchase vehicles that it failed to complete repairs necessary to conform the vehicle to the warranty. (Civil Code § 1793.2(d)(2).) General Motors did nothing in a prompt manner, and after an initial exchange proceeded to ignore our client’s demand.

In January 2022, the Check Engine Light (CEL) turned on. Our client took the Escalade to a GM Dealership for repairs. Epic Chevrolet Cadillac replaced the engine in our client’s Escalade under the warranty. Three (3) days after the engine repair was completed, on or about January 18, 2022, the Escalade burst into flames. The Lemon Law Department filed our lawsuit on January 21, 2022.
