Has your new car given you a sour aftertaste? If you have a new car that has incurred unreasonable warranty problems within the first eighteen months of purchase, you might have a lemon. It seems counterintuitive that a new vehicle could have warranty issues. However, assembly defects are quite common. Assuming that the consumer has not caused the damage and the dealership is given the opportunity to correct the problem, the persistent warranty issue might deem your car a lemon.
What are the Qualifiers?
* Serious warranty issues that could result in a death or injury and are not remedied in two attempts.
* Unavailability for 30 days or more due to service
* Three times too many: Repeat warranty work
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is a federal law protecting consumers from defective products. This law is commonly referred to as the lemon law. Using a California Lemon Law Attorney increases your negotiating stance and representation for your consumer rights. If your new car is not performing, you might be entitled to a refund or a new vehicle.
The California Lemon Law Attorney will negotiate a quick resolution. Using vehicle records and time logs, you can start to build documentation. Time from work and the time your car is in the shop are important records. Additionally, keeping track of your service visits and the final diagnosis and report adds to the development of your claim. It is important to keep your records rather than relying on the dealerships.
