What Can I Do If It Is a Lemon – and Can I Get My Money Back?
If your car has manufacturer defects and it is unsafe to drive, then the Lemon Laws of California may apply to the claim. If that is the case, you deserve recovery compensation, and you may be able to get your money back from the manufacturer in that situation. When you buy a new vehicle from a dealership or other auto seller, you are not expecting that the vehicle will have defects, issues or problems associated with the car or truck. For instance, there is a perception that a new car is “perfect” or nearly perfect, as it is seen in the showroom at the car dealership.
Let’s look at this perception a little more closely. Because a new car is assumed to have passed every quality control test from the manufacturer, it is expected to run well, have no defects and work fine for the purpose for which it was intended. When a consumer buys a vehicle and it has manufacturer’s defects, the consumers lose trust in the manufacturer.
Vehicle Recalls Prompt Losing Overall Trust in a Manufacturer
If a vehicle or brand is recalled on a regular basis, then the buying public will start to lose confidence in that auto manufacturer. Every car that is released from an auto manufacturer is expected to be working in perfect working order. No one buys a new car, and expects that it is going to be riddled with defects, problems or other issues that render the vehicle unsafe or undriveable on the roads.
Additionally, a vehicle recall or detrimental news article on the negative safety aspects of a car or truck can harm the reputation of the auto manufacturer. This “bad press” can lead to financial impacts for the auto manufacturer, who will be forced to sell their model cars for less money, as their reputation for producing a first-rate product will be on the line. The consumers can start to feel betrayed by the auto manufacturers who consistently put out low-rated products that are meant to be driven on our nation’s highways and roadways.
