At Shainfeld Law, our California lemon law attorney focuses on providing consumers with the legal representation they need to hold the manufacturer accountable for their vehicle defects, so they can pursue the proper solution that is right for their needs.
Our California Lemon Law was developed to protect consumers from the myriad of problems that accompany defective vehicles, including their inherent safety hazards and the financial hardships that come with maintaining a car, truck, or SUV that simply cannot be fixed.
The solution, according to our California Lemon Law, may include a replacement vehicle, vehicle buyback option, or a cash settlement.
To ensure your California Lemon Law case goes as smoothly as possible, there are steps you can take – as a consumer – to pursue a successful outcome.
Step One: Thoroughly Review the Vehicle’s Warranty
While purchasing or leasing a vehicle, be sure to carefully review the manufacturer’s warranty, and do your part to comply with the suggested maintenance schedule.
When consumers fail to follow the manufacturer’s suggested car maintenance schedule, it may later be interpreted as an abuse of the vehicle and create unnecessary challenges when pursuing a lemon law case.
Step Two: Take the Vehicle to an Authorized Mechanic Upon the First Sign of Trouble
Immediately upon noticing any trouble with your vehicle, take it to the authorized vehicle maintenance representative, which may be the dealership or another certified technician outlined in the warranty.
To pursue a lemon law claim in California, you must make the qualifying number of reasonable vehicle repair attempts before a case can be considered.
Step Three: Document Everything
When you begin having trouble with your vehicle, document the dates, issues, and maintenance appointments – along with everything the dealership or authorized mechanic has to say about the issue – and attach it to the repair orders, so they can be used to help build your case.
Keeping notes on conversations with the manufacturer, dealer, or repair technician, and retaining all receipts and repair orders will go a long way to achieving success.
