The San Diego Lemon Lawyer: Get What You Paid For

You may have a California lemon law claim so you can return the vehicle and get a refund, a replacement vehicle, or a substantial cash settlement payment. Any new or used vehicle sold that has factory warranty coverage (including Certified Pre-Owned warranty coverage) has California lemon law protection. Many lemon law claims in California can be settled in very little time.

The Hanson Law Firm’s experienced lemon law attorneys know the California lemon law. We also check every case for hidden fraud and finance-law disclosure violations, unlike "lemon mill firms" that abound on the internet. We are an in-California firm, not an out-of-state law firm, and are able to give you local, individual attention. Call 1-877-297-3372 (toll free) for a FREE consultation and a review of your repair history. Find out quickly if you have a case and leave the dealers and manufacturers 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 “Do-It-Yourself” Lemon Law:
If you deal directly with the manufacturer seeking a "lemon law buyback” of your car, truck, SUV, or minivan, you may lose money and 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 swallow. Many vehicles have substantial safety and driveability issues that make them an unsafe lemon. Even if they 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 in full compliance with the California lemon law, not just a phony “goodwill” offer.

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 (warranty means a promise) 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 badly damaged, prior wrecks, prior rental cars, etc. If you bougt a Certified car, truck, SUV, or minivan, call us for a free fraud / lemon check: 1-877-297-3372
