If you leased or purchased a brand new car and within the first few years are experiencing recurring problems, headaches and returned visits to the dealership, then your car may be a lemon and you will have certain legal rights and remedies under the the California Lemon Law.
Top Signs of a NEW CAR LEMON:
1) For cars less than 18 months old and less than 18,000 miles, if your car has been in service at the dealer for a cumulative of 30 days during this time, your car is presumed to be a lemon.
The problems don’t have to be for the same issue. This means that an aggressive and skillful lemon law attorney can quickly pursue the car manufacturer to admit the car is a lemon and get you most of your money back.
2) For car who have more than 18,000 miles, but are still only a few years old, if the car is experiencing repeated and recurring problems for the same issue, or if the car has multiple recurring problems with different issues, there is a high likelihood that the California Lemon Laws will kick in and provide you relief.
