Lake Forest, CA asked in Products Liability, Lemon Law and Small Claims for California

Q: How do I get General Motors to cover repair of the fuel pump on my 2008 Corvette.

There is a special service bulletin (15682) that covers this repair for free if the car is less than 10 years old. I bought the car a year ago, and only learned of this bulletin after my car was no longer covered. GM also has another service bulletin out for other model cars (12191) that covers unlimited mileage and years for the same design flaw..

A: Ask the dealer about a "secret" warranty. Failing this, ask GM about a "goodwill" fix.

Failing this, take ALL of your evidence to small claims court and sue GM for the cost

of the repair.
