Our Los Angeles lemon law attorney at Shainfeld Law, P.C. knows that any vehicle owner, anywhere in California can find themselves with a “Lemon” — no matter how reliable their vehicle scored with Consumer Reports.

What most people do not know is, if their new, used, or leased vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, they may be eligible to pursue viable recovery options through the California Lemon Law.

This is important because California residents should never be stuck driving a vehicle that impairs its use, safety, or value. As one of the most consumer-friendly lemon law states, California laws outline how vehicle manufacturers must maintain their responsibilities for the cars, trucks, and SUVs they warranty. Here is what California consumers need to know.

Which Warranty Obligations Must Vehicle Manufacturers Uphold?

If your new, used, or leased vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, it is responsible for honoring the warranty in its totality. This means covering all maintenance and repairs that are covered by the legally binding document at no cost to you.

When a manufacturer sells a vehicle with a valid warranty, it also must:

  • Have repair facilities, which may include dealerships or certified mechanics, reasonably close by to repair the vehicle.
  • Provide the repair facility, dealership, or certified mechanic with sufficient literature and parts to properly repair the vehicle during the warranty period.
  • Ensure the repair facilities start repairs on the vehicle within a reasonable time and that the repairs are complete within 30 days.

Since there is so much to know about the California Lemon Law, it is important to understand your legal rights and options to pursue a claim. If your vehicle defect rises to the legal threshold of a “Lemon” our skilled Los Angeles lemon lawyers will take your qualifying case at no charge to you.

All California lemon law attorney fees are paid by the manufacturer, so you never pay any upfront fees, or out-of-pocket costs for our legal representation.
