What Is the Lemon Law?
Lemon laws are federal and state consumer protection laws that were enacted to protect consumers who have purchased (or leased) defective vehicles. The law provides that when a manufacturer cannot repair a vehicle after a reasonable number of repair attempts and the defect is substantial to the use, value, or safety of it, the manufacturer must either replace the vehicle or refund the consumer’s money.

Auto Manufacturers and Car Dealerships Need to Work with You to Repair Your Lemon Vehicle
It is essential that the car dealership work quickly to repair any defects as identified on your new vehicle. If the car dealership does not make the repairs quicky, they may be acting outside of the lemon laws. The California lemon laws require that a car dealership has the opportunity to make repairs to a car that has a defect, but those repairs need to take place within a 1-month timeframe.
That means that the car dealership can’t put the repairs to your lemon car on the back burner and get to it “when they feel like it.” It usually happens that while you are waiting for your car to be repaired, you are in a rental car or incurring other expenses to get around, such as in a rideshare or taxi cab. These expenses should be recoverable as part of your final settlement for your claim. We are here to help you, and all that you need to do is to call us today, to start the process right now. We are available at the My Lemon Law Lawyer at (833)205-1900.
Common Defects for Lemon Vehicles Bought by Consumers
It is possible to have a lemon car defect in any component of a vehicle, but when a manufacturer’s defect affects the safety of the car or truck, it is a serious issue. There can be defects found in any part of a car or truck, including:
- Air conditioner compressor
- Window motors
- Muffler and pipes
- Structural areas of the vehicle
- Fuel injection components
- Steering system
Often when there are defects on a lemon car, the defects are significantly affecting the safety of driving the vehicle and not just convenience features. For example, if you have a defective seat belt system, it is no minor inconvenience that the seat belts do not work. If your seat belts do not cinch properly when you engage the seat belt clip, then in an accident the seat belts will not keep you snug and safely in place in the vehicle during a crash.
For this reason, we take seriously all defective features of a lemon car, and work to get you the recovery compensation that you deserve in each case. You can call us today to start the process, and you will talk to our legal team about your lemon car claim and any additional expenses and losses that you have incurred related to your lemon car case.
Recent Victories for Owners of Ford Lemon Vehicles
A class action for $15 million against Ford Motor Company has been initiated for a defect in the transmission of 2011-2019-year Ford Mustang vehicles. If your Ford Mustang has a MT82 or MT82-D4 transmission, there is a defect that causes the transmission to have problems, including:
- Slipping out of gear
- Jerking to change gears
- Difficult to engage gears
- Clashing of the gears
- Wear out early from harsh gear shifting
- Gear failure on the defective gears
The lawsuit also stated that when repairs were attempted on the vehicles, that it did not resolve the issue. This class action does allege that Ford know of the transmission problems over a decade ago, and hid the fact of the defects to the buyers of their vehicles.
