At Shainfeld Law, P.C., our California lemon law attorney knows that buying a new or used car, truck, or SUV is an exciting time for anyone — especially when it is leased or purchased with a manufacturer’s warranty attached.

Warranties give consumers peace of mind that if something should go wrong with their vehicle, its repair costs are covered, which means you pay no out-of-pocket costs when they return to the dealership for service.

So, what happens when a vehicle’s defect impacts the car’s safety, value, or use, and a mechanic cannot fix the problem?

Our California Lemon Law attorney can help consumers pursue the manufacturer for a remedy, but it must happen within the law’s statute of limitations.

How Long Do I Have to File a California Lemon Law Claim?

Vehicle consumers have four years from the date they noticed — or should have noticed — a defect.

Does the Defective Vehicle Have to Be Under the Manufacturer’s Warranty to Pursue a Lemon Law Claim?

Yes. Since most new cars are covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty, they are eligible for California Lemon Law protection.

Used vehicles must be covered by one of the following warranties, to qualify for California’s Lemon Law protection:

  • Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty
  • Lemon Law Buyback Warranty
  • Transferred New Car Warranty

If you believe your vehicle is defective and would like to understand your rights to pursue a legal remedy, contact our skilled Los Angeles lemon law attorney today for help.
