    I repeated had the check engine light come on after I bought my truck (used w/ 16000mi). This took 8 trips to the dealer before they figured out it was a fuel line issue. The metal receiver for the gas cap wouldn't secure properly. Since it was a used car when I bought it I couldn't do the normal lemon law suit. I was able to sue for breach of contract and had GM award me money for the time & effort of 8 trips to the dealer and missed work hours.
