Here is why.
The California lemon law applies to new, used, and certified pre-owned vehicles if the repairs take place under the manufacturer warranty.
So, how do you know what your vehicle is worth when pursuing a California lemon law claim?
First, it depends on the defect. To qualify for lemon law protection in California, you will first need to show that your new or used vehicle meets the necessary criteria.
What is Considered a Substantial Defect that Qualifies a Vehicle as a Lemon?
The California lemon law requires a consumer to prove:
- A substantial vehicle defectexists that impairs the safety, value, or use of the vehicle
- The manufacturer has attempted a reasonable number of repair attempts to fix the defect and was unsuccessful
- The defect was not caused by driver misuse
Once the criteria are met, our experienced Los Angeles lemon law attorney can help you determine what type of settlement to pursue.
How are California Lemon Law Settlements Calculated?
Lemon law claims in California are not pursued on an “on average” basis.
The average lemon law settlement can range drastically from case to case for multiple reasons.
- Make and model of the vehicle
- Year the vehicle was manufactured
- Purchase price
- The nature and frequency of the repairs
Partnering with a skilled California lemon lawyer can greatly impact your lemon law settlement.
If your vehicle is eligible for a California lemon law claim, we will also hold the vehicle’s manufacturer liable for your legal fees, so you pay nothing out of pocket to pursue the best solution for your unique case.
