If you have purchased a new or certified preowned vehicle manufactured in the year 2017 or later and have experienced defects that substantially affect its use, value, or safety, you may be eligible to file a claim against the manufacturer under our California Lemon Law.
At Lemon Law Now , our California lemon law lawyer helps our residents understand the requirements to file such a claim, as they include detailed legal obligations from both the consumer and the manufacturer.
Before our California Lemon Law Attorney outlines your claim, there are actions you must take to ensure those requirements are met.
What Can I Do to Help Build My Lemon Law Case?
The initial requirement to pursue a Lemon Law claim in California requires the consumer to take their vehicle to the manufacturer, or its agent, for a reasonable number of attempts to repair the defect.
When this process requires multiple, or what our laws describe as “reasonable” attempts, it is a good time to begin looking for a qualified California lemon law attorney to advise the vehicle’s owner of their legal rights under our laws.
Upon contact, we will review your concerns and answer any questions you may have about our Lemon Law before requesting the maintenance and repair records (will link to records blog) you have compiled throughout the attempts to fix the defect, including auto repair orders and personal notes or logs detailing each repair attempt.
In addition, we suggest compiling all receipts showing any out of pocket expenses associated with the vehicle’s defects, which can include money spent on transportation while your vehicle underwent repairs.
Next, we will need all original purchase or lease paperwork, as this will be helpful in determining either the amount of money owed or the value of the replacement vehicle being provided by the manufacturer.
If you are unsure of how to proceed with your California Lemon Law claim, our experienced California Lemon Law Lawyer will walk you through the process, so you know what we need to pursue results from your vehicle manufacturer.
