Can You Lemon Your Car After an Accident?

Buying a new car is meant to be a joyous occasion. But it is less exciting when your new car turns out to be a lemon vehicle. Upon review of the “Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act,” you can find in the California Civil Code Section 1790 et seq. regulations related to consumer protection for lemon vehicles. A lemon car is one that is damaged from the manufacturer, right out of the gate. That means that a new car is defective, often before the first mile is drive on the vehicle.

How Do Manufacturers Allow Lemon Cars to Get Through the Factory?

That is an excellent question: How does a manufacturer allow a lemon car to go off of their assembly line, to get later sold to the consumers and customers? Well, the answer is that there should never be lemon cars, not one, that is able to pass the quality control inspection that a car manufacturer should perform on all vehicles made at their plant. But because the manufacturers often make mistakes and defects do get through, there are many cars out on the roads that have critical manufacturer’s defects, that are sold to the buying public every day.

What Happens If a Lemon Car Gets into an Accident, Can It Still Be a “Lemon” Car?

Yes, if your lemon car gets into an accident, it is still a lemon car. If your car is involved in an accident, there may need to be an investigation to determine if the lemon defect on your vehicle was directly responsible for your having been in an accident or not. For example, if your car has a brake defect or a sudden acceleration defect and that causes you to have a serious accident, then your car being in an accident does not negate the fact that your vehicle is a lemon vehicle.

What Types of Accidents Do Lemon Cars Have Based on the Status of Being a Lemon Car?

A lemon car can get into any number of types of accidents, based on the status that it is a lemon car. If you are in an accident, you will be in a position to have the car repaired. If you have a lemon car, you can get the car repaired from an accident, and still lemon your car, if the manufacturer’s defect that makes your car a lemon is that significant. For example, if you are in a minor accident and get the car fixed for the accident, your major issues related to the identified manufacturer’s defects are still an outstanding issue on the vehicle.

Your lemon car can be in any number of accidents, including:

  • Several car collision accidents
  • Getting hit by entering or crossing into traffic from a parked position
  • Another car missing a curve and sideswiping your car
  • A speeding car hitting your car
  • A car crossing the median to hit your car
  • A car backing into your car
  • A car overtaking your car and swerving into your lane
  • A car making an improper turn in front of you and hitting your car
  • Another car over-correcting and hitting your car
  • Another car making erratic lane changes
  • A car tailgating you and hitting you from behind
  • A car losing control on the roadway
