California Lemon Law Cases and Claims

Use California’s powerful Lemon Law to get what you paid for — a car that works — or make them give your money back. You may have a California lemon law claim so you can return the vehicle and get a refund of money you have paid (as well as a payoff of any loan or lease balance), a new replacement vehicle, or a substantial cash settlement payment. Any new or used vehicle sold that has factory warranty coverage may have California lemon law protection. Many lemon claims in California can be settled in as little as 10 days.

The California lemon law has a provision for attorney’s fees, making the automobile manufacturer pay the attorney for time spent on your lemon law claim. This allows us to shift our fees to manufacturers and wrongdoers.

Call or e-mail us for help. The vast majority of lemon law cases settle long before trial. We do not charge you attorney fees, and no money is ever due up-front to start your case. All cases are taken on a contingency basis, instead. Unlike some firms, all the out-of-pocket money (amount you have paid) that we get back goes to you. All the money we get for you to pay for your vehicle loan is used for that purpose alone none goes to us.

Don’t Get Fooled Into Arbitration: Arbitration is not a requirement for consumers in California to pursue a lemon law case.

Know Your Warranty, Know Your Lemon Rights: Your California lemon law rights extend the entire new vehicle limited warranty period, which is typically 3 years/36,000 miles, or 4 years/50,000 miles. Don’t be mislead by “information” or “instructions” or manufacturer’s “lemon law booklets”that a lemon law claim must be filed within 18 months or 18,000 miles, or that you “must” go through Arbitration – this is simply not the case in California! Our lemon law offices will give you all the information you need on how to pursue a lemon law case to get your money back, or a new replacement vehicle.

Beware of DIY Lemon Law: If you deal directly with the manufacturer seeking a buyback of your vehicle, you may lose much of the money you are entitled to or even get left with a dangerous vehicle. The car manufacturer has no rule book on lemon law to follow, but rather, can simply make any offer that it thinks the consumer may buy. Worse yet, many vehicles have substantial safety and driveability issues that make them an unsafe lemon. Even if the car manufacturer was to say it offers a true California Lemon Law buyback, that does not necessarily mean the vehicle is being repurchased as a true California Lemon Law buyback and the title branded lemon law buyback. Without this branded title, the manufacturer may try to put these defective vehicles back on the road with another unsuspecting consumer.

Having our law firm handle your lemon law case assures you that when vehicles are repurchased, they are repurchased pursuant to our California lemon law, not by a phony “goodwill” offer. Call the Lemon Law Helpline at 1-877-297-3372.

Certified Pre-Owned Used Car Warranties / Frauds: If you purchased your used vehicle from a new car franchised dealer as a certified pre-owned used vehicle, then you can enjoy many of the same California lemon law benefits as the new car purchaser. These factory-sponsored CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) vehicles come with a written warranty backed by the automobile manufacturer. Even if your car, truck, or van is out of the manufacturer’s original new vehicle limited warranty, you still have California lemon law protection during the extended certified pre-owned warranty period. Our experienced professionals know your rights under the California lemon law with a CPO vehicle.

The warranties (warranties = “promises”) of most Certified Pre-Owned sales, promise that the car is “like new,” is without hidden problems or history, and has been completely refurbished. It is surprising how often these CPO cars are full of exactly these problems. Call us for a free review, and see if you really got what you paid extra for.
