At Shainfeld Law, P.C., our lemon law attorney in Los Angeles knows that buying a new car is a very exciting and proud moment in anyone’s life. It is possible to ask nearly anyone in California what their first new car was, and they can probably tell you with certainty, and a smile, what it was.
Today, consumers are buying new vehicles for the same reasons they have for decades: The promise of its reliability.
Consumer Reports stated that concerns about reliability and repairs are why they are not considering buying a used vehicle. The report listed reliability concerns as a more common reason for wanting to buy a new car than other factors — like wanting the latest in safety features or technology — among drivers who said they were in the market for only a new car.
The reality is, when it comes to concerns about reliability, repairs, and breakdowns, new cars are not immune to such issues.
What Happens If My New Vehicle Has Reliability Problems?
The California Lemon Law protects consumers from being stuck with a vehicle — new or used — that is under warranty if it has a manufacturer defect that impairs its safety, use, or value.
Although the qualifying number of repair attempts for each potential issue differs to deem the vehicle a lemon, your rights as a California consumer are unwavering, and may include one of several legal remedies.
The manufacturer may:
- Replace your vehicle
- Repurchase your vehicle
- Offer a cash settlement for your vehicle
