Do I Have a Lemon Vehicle?

Serving Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, San Bernardino Counties & Nearby Areas of California

This may be the question on your mind if you have experienced problems with your vehicle that cannot be fixed. Most of us take pride in our car and rely on it for our chief mode of transportation. This is why encountering irreparable issues can be unnerving and frustrating. However, if the same problem persists after a number of repair attempts, you may be entitled to a replacement vehicle or your money back.

Your vehicle may be a lemon if the problem you have been experiencing affects the vehicle’s use, value or safety. Also, a consumer cannot pursue a lemon law claim in California unless the problem with the vehicle is substantial. For instance, a person who is bothered by the static on their radio, a rattle or squeak, or would like the air conditioning to blow colder, may not have experienced a substantial nonconformity that would allow them to use the California lemon law.

If you’re wondering if your vehicle is a lemon under California law, the basic legal standard is does the vehicle conform to the manufacturer’s express warranty after a reasonable number of repair attempts.

The California lemon law is complex, and far too many misconceptions exist. To find out what your potential legal options are, please contact experienced California lemon law attorney Howard D. Silver. Call (855) 341-2611 today for a free consultation.
