At Shainfeld Law, P.C., our California lemon law attorney provides the legal representation our clients need to prove their vehicle defects are affecting the safety, value, or use of their cars, trucks, or SUVs.

During our free consultations, we learn each detail about our client’s vehicle defects, so they can take advantage of our California Lemon Law and get the relief they are entitled to.

Here is what our California clients need to know about how our Lemon Law can help protect them from being stuck with a defective vehicle when it is still under the manufacturer’s warranty.

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

California has a four-year statute of limitations that begins once the defect is discovered.

However, the statute of limitations is rarely the issue in California lemon law claims.

Identifying the defect through timely service appointments is the key factor, as it must occur during the vehicle’s active manufacturer’s warranty period.

What Types of Vehicle Defects are Covered by the California Lemon Law?

Our California Lemon Law states that consumers may pursue a claim when their vehicle is under the original manufacturer’s warranty and suffers a defect that a mechanic cannot fix after a reasonable number of attempts or during a specific period.

The most common defects associated with Lemon Law cases may include, but are not limited to:

  • Tires
  • Brake problems
  • Gas tank defects
  • Fuel pump issues
  • Engine overheating
  • Transmission problems
  • Steering, suspension, or alignment issues
  • Malfunctioning latches, locks, or windows
  • Seatbelts or airbags that are not working properly
  • Fluid leaks, including those involving engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, or coolant

If your vehicle has spent more time at the dealership or with a certified mechanic than it has on the road, talk to our skilled Los Angeles lemon law attorney about both your vehicle’s warranty and the car trouble you are having. We will outline the qualifying factors that pertain to our California lemon law, so you can seek the relief to which you are entitled.

There is never any charge to partner with an attorney to discuss your lemon law options, or for us to file a claim on your behalf. The manufacturer is responsible for all legal fees associated with a lemon law claim in California, so our services cost consumers nothing.
