At Shainfeld Law, our California lemon law attorney knows that there are many myths about our California Lemon Law and how it affects consumers who have unknowingly purchased defective vehicles throughout the state.
One of the most common misconceptions about our California Lemon Law is that it does not protect consumers with used cars, and that simply is not true.
What Vehicles are Covered Under the California Lemon Law?
While our California Lemon Law does not protect all vehicle owners across the board, if you purchased a car, truck, or SUV that is under the original manufacturer’s warranty and is a model year from 2017-2021, you may still be eligible to file a lemon law claim in California.
With the help of our experienced California lemon law attorney, who has produced results for thousands of cases over nearly 15 years, we can help prevent you from being stuck with an unrepairable vehicle.
Cars that are covered under the used car lemon law in California include:
- Used vehicles sold that feature a written warranty
- Used vehicles that are bought and utilized for family and personal use
- Used vehicles that weigh fewer than 10,000 pounds that are used mostly for business, when fewer than five vehicles are registered to the organization
When is My Vehicle Deemed a Lemon in California?
When consumers are confronted with vehicle trouble, they are obligated to pursue repairs directly from an authorized agent outlined in the manufacturer’s warranty, which is often the dealership.
They then must undergo a qualifying number of reasonable vehicle repair attempts before it is determined that the mechanic cannot fix the issue, which is when the owner should contact our experienced California lemon law attorney.
What Happens When the Vehicle Cannot Be Repaired?
If the vehicle cannot be repaired, our Lemon Law attorneys in California will outline your legal options, which may allow us to pursue one of three solutions from the manufacturer:
- Provide a replacement vehicle
- Repurchase your vehicle
- Pursue a cash settlement and you keep the vehicle
It is important to note that when your lemon lawsuit is successful, the manufacturer is liable for your legal costs, so you do not pay our fees out of pocket.
