California Lemon Lawyer

FAQs Cont.

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.
