Tesla Motors Settles First Ever Lemon Law Lawsuit

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

Tesla Motors has a reputation as one of the pioneers in the electric car industry, and their Model S Sedan is considered one of the finest electric vehicles on the market. However, the auto manufacturer recently settled a lemon law claim involving one of their Model S vehicles.

The owner of the vehicle claims his vehicle was inoperable for 66 days during the few months following his purchase of it in March 2013. The vehicle was shipped to Tesla's factory in Chicago several times for repair attempts which proved unsuccessful. The owner received more than $126,000 to cover:

  • The cost of the vehicle
  • All accessories included in the vehicle
  • Attorney fees totaling approximately $18,500

If you live in the state of California, you have certain rights in the event that your vehicle turns out to be a "lemon." Under the California Lemon Law, you are entitled to receive a replacement vehicle or a refund of your money if the auto manufacturer is unable to successfully repair the vehicle after several attempts.
