If you feel that you meet the "3
or more repair attempts" criteria noted above, please call us at the toll-free
number below to receive a FREE Lemon Law case review and evaluation of your vehicle.
PLEASE NOTE: For engine/drive-ability/etc. cases, we do not accept cases
for review in which the owner has modified the vehicle via installation of
aftermarket performance "chips", "mapping", "intake systems" and "starting at
the exhaust manifold" exhaust systems, etc. Cat-back systems are O.K. There must
be less than 5 vehicles registered to same owner/business.
Cases that are accepted will be at either NO COST or a very low "contingency fee"
to the consumer (attorney’s fees billable to auto
manufacturer under statute if attorney settles case).
The California Lemon Law protects
consumers that purchase or lease vehicles in the state of California, register
them here via paying California tax and license (registration), and have their
warranty repairs performed at factory authorized California dealership
locations. Consumers must keep their warranty work receipts, or gain a "warranty
repair history" printout from the dealership to prove the repairs/repair visits
that have taken place.
Our lemon law statute in
California provides the manufacturer of your vehicle with a "reasonable" number
of repair attempts to rectify the problem/symptom. The number of repair visits
necessary to be "reasonable" is relative to how many months the truck has been
in warranty service, the description and substantiality of the symptom/problem,
and the number of miles currently on the truck. It should be noted that contrary
to what you may read in your vehicles warranty book, California has no
requirement for "arbitration", allowing the consumer to directly seek and retain
legal counsel to represent them in a "lemon law" case.
Assistance Centers" give out "case numbers", which are NOT a lemon law case, but
rather simply a reference number for the next time you call in with a complaint.
Watch out for the age-old trick
of the "dealer trade assist" or similar wording used by some car dealers if a
customer complaints about his/her truck that has symptoms/ problems. Customers
are often told "we will get you out of your truck and into a new one". Don’t
fall for this time-worn consumer ploy. This is simply the dealer trying to take
your truck in trade and sell you a new one, taking all the negative equity from
your current truck and hiding it in the loan or lease on the new replacement
Our California lemon law is the
avenue truck buyers utilize to get their money back, or a new replacement truck
(if originally purchased new)
Under our California statute,
consumers who buy or lease a new super duty truck (or a used super duty diesel
truck that is still under the manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty or "Certified
Pre-Owned" program) all get to exercise their California Lemon Law rights if
they have a qualifying repair history.
