At Lemon Law Now, our California lemon law attorney encourages anyone who has a vehicle that is protected by a manufacturer’s warranty to contact our law firm with questions about their car, truck, or SUV’s mechanical issues before taking any advice from a car dealer or auto repair technician.
Here is why: It is important to consult with an attorney who is fully licensed to practice law in the state of California and has experience litigating lemon law legal claims, so you know your rights are protected from the beginning.
The dealership, its representatives, or mechanics cannot provide legitimate and ethical legal advice, especially when they are trying to protect their best interests when providing feedback about your repair options.
If you believe you have a valid legal claim under our California Lemon Laws, and have taken your vehicle in for the qualifying number of reasonable vehicle repair attempts and your mechanic cannot fix the issue, it may be time to stop talking to the dealership and start talking to our skilled lemon law attorney in California instead.
Communicating with the Dealership May Harm Your Chances of Pursuing a Successful Legal Claim
Engaging in conversation with a car dealer or their auto repair technician is routine behavior when you are trying to get to the bottom of what is wrong with your vehicle.
And honestly, they may seem like the perfect resource for answers as they express seemingly genuine concern over the next steps to get your vehicle back on the road.
However, discussing the details of a potentially defective vehicle with the wrong people could harm your chances of building a successful legal claim.
Consumers must remember the dealership and its representatives are in the business of selling cars, not offering legal advice.
You should be cautious in accepting what appears to be advice from someone who is not trained, qualified, or authorized to propose legal solutions, especially if the dealership representative mentions repurchasing the defective vehicle under the lemon law.
When a dealer says they can repurchase the defective vehicle under the lemon law, it may be a way to circumvent their legal obligations while keeping a customer.
Your warranty is a binding legal document between you and the manufacturer — not the dealership or certified repair shop.
Because of this relationship, the only party who can make the decision to repurchase a defective vehicle under our California lemon law is the manufacturer.
At Lemon Law Now, we will pursue the manufacturer for the protection you deserve from our California lemon law, including their obligation to pay our legal fees after your case ends in a successful legal remedy.
