At Shainfeld Law, our San Jose lemon law attorney has nearly 15 years of experience providing our clients with legal solutions under our California Lemon Law.
Our California should never be stuck with a vehicle that cannot be fixed by a mechanic after a
qualifying number of reasonable vehicle repair attempts when it is under the manufacturer’s warranty.
If your car, truck, or SUV is showing signs of mechanical defects, and is spending more time at the dealership or certified mechanic shop than it is on the road, contact our Santa Clara County lemon law attorney today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your legal options, so we can create the appropriate solution for your unique needs.
Our California residents are never responsible for our legal fees, as our state and federal laws allow our San Jose lemon law attorneys to pursue and collect all legal fees and costs directly from the manufacturer, so our clients pay nothing out of pocket for our services.
What Evidence Will I Need to Prove My Lemon Law Claim?
Our California Lemon Law protects consumers who have purchased or leased a vehicle that is under a manufacturer’s warranty and exhibiting signs of defects that cannot be fixed by the dealership or a certified mechanic.
Your vehicle may be a lemon if:
- It has a faulty defect(s)
- Its issue(s) impairs its use, safety, or value
- It cannot be repaired after multiple attempts by the manufacturer or dealership
To determine if your vehicle is a lemon, contact our experienced San Jose lemon law attorneys today for a free consultation.
How Many Repair Attempts Qualify a Vehicle as a Lemon in California?
California’s Lemon Law Presumption explains when a defective vehicle reaches a qualifying number of repair attempts.
The Legal Presumption states a car may be a lemon in California when:
- It could cause serious bodily injury or death, and has not been repaired by the dealer/manufacturer after at least two attempts
- It has not been fixed and exhibits the same problem after four or more attempts by the dealership/manufacturer
- It has been at the dealership or certified mechanic’s location for more than 30 non-consecutive days total for warranty-covered issues and repairs
Our California residents do not have to live with a car, truck, or SUV they believe to be a lemon. At Shainfeld Law, our San Jose lemon law attorneys will explain your legal rights and options to hold the manufacturer accountable for the defective vehicle, so you can move forward without all the trips to the dealership.
What Types of Defects Qualify My Vehicle as Lemon in California?
All vehicles that qualify as lemons in California may exhibit different defects.
However, some of the more common types of defects that cannot be fixed by the dealership, mechanic, or manufacturer may include:
- Faulty airbags or improperly working seatbelts
- Malfunctioning latches, locks, or windows
- Engine overheating
- Transmission problems
- Steering, suspension, or alignment issues
- Failing fuel pump
- Fluid leaks, including engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, or coolant that leads to serious safety issues
There is no exhaustive list of defective vehicle issues, as your car, truck, or SUV could have problems that have not been seen by the manufacturer before.
If your vehicle is under the manufacturer’s warranty and cannot be fixed after a qualifying number of attempts by the dealership, certified mechanic, or manufacturer, contact our experienced lemon law attorney in San Jose today to discuss your legal options.
How Can Shainfeld Law Help Me Pursue the Manufacturer for a Positive Outcome?
At Shainfeld Law, our San Jose lemon law attorney customizes each case we represent to pursue the best outcome for each of our client’s unique needs.
Our lemon law attorney in San Jose will review your case during a free consultation to confirm its validity and obtain the necessary evidence to move forward before we make our demands to the manufacturer that we have lost faith and reliability in the vehicle.
The manufacturer has 30 days to respond, which typically results in one of the following offers:
- Repurchase the vehicle
- Replace the vehicle
- Cash settlement
Our San Jose lemon lawyers will keep you updated on the claim, demands, responses, and resolution timeline, so you know exactly what to expect from our representation.
Most of our clients see results in as little as 60 to 90 days.
Are Appliances Covered by the California Lemon Law?
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 protects consumers who have purchased different types of appliances for personal or family use.
Like our California Lemon Law, when the following items are under warranty, and have faced multiple repairs for the same issues without a resolution, they must either repurchase the item, replace the item, refund the item’s value, or offer a cash settlement for the item.
Warrantied items that are eligible for coverage may include, but are not limited to:
- Digital cameras
- Medical devices and/or equipment
- Electric toothbrushes
- Hearing aids
- Electronic equipment, including televisions and stereo systems
- Kitchen appliances
- Personal computers, laptops, and tablets
- Musical instruments
If you are experiencing ongoing car problems and the vehicle is under the manufacturer’s warranty, contact our skilled San Jose Lemon Law attorney at Shainfeld Law, P.C., today by calling 310-295-1888 or request a free consultation online to learn more about your legal rights and options to hold the manufacturer for your full financial recovery.
