When California residents buy or lease a new or used car that is under warranty, it is only reasonable to expect it to function properly. After all, that is the point of getting a new — or new to you — vehicle.
It is also the reason behind purchasing a vehicle with a manufacturer’s warranty. A manufacturer’s warranty gives drivers peace of mind, knowing they have a backup plan if there is an issue with the car, truck, or SUV. When the warranty covers their repairs, it means no out-of-pocket costs associated with dropping it off at the dealership.
That is, until the vehicle undergoes a qualifying number of repair attempts, or is in the repair shop for a total of 30 days or more either without repairs being made, or with no repair solution.
If this is true for you, you may have a lemon. In California, this may entitle you to a legal settlement that allows you to put this vehicle behind you and move forward with confidence.
