At Shainfeld Law, P.C., our California lemon law attorney in Los Angeles knows that one of the most frustrating vehicle defects consumers experience is transmission issues. When you purchase a new or used vehicle that is still under warranty in California, it is difficult to believe there is something wrong with the car, truck, or SUV already.

Our clients often say, the minute they drop their vehicle off for the first repair attempt, disbelief sets in. When the issue involves the transmission, their safety can be impacted. If that is true for you, the California Lemon Law has a much lower threshold for the qualifying number of attempts the dealership has to fix the problem.

We can help you determine the legal requirements for your unique case, so you understand your rights from the beginning, and can seek a legal remedy sooner than later.

What Are the Signs of Ongoing Transmission Problems that May Qualify My Vehicle as a Lemon?

Each type of vehicle, and its manufacturing defect will differ.

However, some of the most common signs of ongoing transmission problems may include, but are not limited to:

  • A Burning Smell Coming from the Vehicle
  • A Dragging Clutch in a Manual Transmission
  • A Lack of Power
  • Excess Noise When in Neutral
  • Gear Shift Problems
  • Grinding, Jerking, or Shaking
  • Leaking Transmission Fluid
  • Shifting Delays
  • Slipping Gears
  • Strange Sounds Coming During Gear Transition
  • The “Check Engine” Light is On
  • The Vehicle Will Not Go into Gear or Only in Reverse

If you have taken your vehicle to the dealership for the same issue multiple times, and it is still exhibiting the same issue, you may be eligible to file a lemon law claim in California. We can help. We have a 99% success rate, and typically produce results for our California lemon law clients in as little as 30-60 days.
