California Lemon Law Claims

Call California Lemon Law Attorneys today. Don’t get stuck with a lemon!

Often, when consumers first call us they are unsure whether their vehicle or consumer good (trailer or boat) qualifies under California Lemon Law.

In order to establish a lemon law claim in California, your vehicle, trailer or boat must have a defect or “nonconformity” which is a substantial impairment to the use, value and/or safety of the vehicle. The manufacturer through its authorized repair facility (dealership) must be given a reasonable number of repair attempts for the nonconformity. Sometimes only one or two repair attempts are all that is needed to qualify your vehicle, trailer or boat as a lemon because the defect is so serious.

An example of a serious defect would be engine or transmission failure. Usually, one guideline set forth in California Lemon Law is if the vehicle has had at least four repair attempts for the same defect, the car qualifies as a lemon. However, there is no hard and fast rule. The best advice is to call our California Lemon Lawyers at 877-955-3666 for an evaluation. We do not charge our clients fees or out of pocket expenses.

A vehicle can qualify if it is new or used and even if it has higher mileage. Certain factors can weigh in the consumers favor if, for instance, there has been a recall or “technical bulletin” issued by the manufacturer for the subject defect or the manufacturer has extended the warranty on certain components of the vehicle.

Lemon Vehicles Do Not Have to Be New!

Over the years we have represented many consumers who did not think they would ever qualify for the repurchase or replacement which they ultimately got once they were represented by Lemon Law Associates of California. We just recently won a trial involving a used BMW with 46,000 miles which was sold by Carmax. As long as there is a remaining term on the warranty, it is transferable to the next owner. You do not have to purchase a car at an authorized dealer to be able to make a lemon law claim.

Often consumers are needlessly frustrated by the red tape and “run around” they receive from the dealerships and manufacturer. Many clients call confused as to who is responsible for their lemon. The dealership cannot help you with your claim. Only the manufacturer can offer a buy back or replacement under California Lemon Laws.

In most cases there is no reason to be stuck with your lemon. Lemon Law Associates of California can help. We have represented thousands of disgruntled California consumers get the justice they deserve. Don’t waste any more time by fighting with your local dealership or by calling the “customer satisfaction” help lines. If you need an aggressive, lawyer, give us a call today!
