The Bravo Law Firm - The Lemon Law Advocates.
It can be difficult to understand whether your vehicle is a lemon and how you should proceed with getting a refund or replacement. You may run into opposition from the manufacturer or dealer, making it essential to involve a Los Angeles lemon law attorney who can properly present your case and protect your rights as a consumer. For information on this important subject, feel free to review the following questions and answers, or give us a call at (424) 484-4481 to talk to an attorney about your case.
What is a lemon?
The term “lemon” is used to describe a consumer product, most often a type of motor vehicle, which is defective. A vehicle that is in constant need of repairs or that cannot be repaired even after multiple attempts may be a lemon. When you call The Bravo Law Firm, APC, we can talk to you about your vehicle to see if you have a lemon on your hands.
What damages are available under California lemon law?
If your vehicle is a lemon, you may be entitled to:
- A refund or replacement vehicle
- Payment of your attorney fees
- Additional compensation
If I have an older vehicle, can I still qualify for lemon law damages?
A common misconception about lemon law is that you can only qualify for a refund, replacement, or other damages if you have a new vehicle. No matter how old your vehicle may be, or how many miles it may have on the odometer, you may still qualify. We can talk to you about the repairs that have been attempted and the issues you’ve been having to see how to proceed with a case.
How many times must my vehicle have been repaired, for it to qualify as a lemon?
If you brought your vehicle to the dealership for at least four times for the same repair, you may have a lemon. The same may apply if it has been out of service for more than 30 days during the warranty period.
What if my car is no longer under warranty?
While lemon law damages typically apply in cases where the vehicle is still under warranty (which often lasts 36 months or 36,000 miles), you may still have a valid claim. For example, if the issue arose while the vehicle was still under warranty and the manufacturer did not fix it, you may have a case.
Do I need an attorney?
Even though manufacturers are required by consumer protection laws to refund or replace defective products, trying to get a refund or replacement on your own can be complicated, time-consuming, and ineffective. You may face opposition by the manufacturer or dealership, who are only interested in preserving their image and assets. A Los Angeles lemon lawyer can handle all aspects of your claim and can pursue any and all possible damages to maximize your recovery.
