Is My Car Considered a Lemon If I Used It for Turo?

Turo is a company that allows private people to offer their personal cars out for use by others as a rental. People can use an app that allows connection on the Turo website, to find car owners who let their cars be used by people interested in driving a specific model of car as a rental car. This business model differs greatly from a person just going to a rental car company, in an effort to rent a car.

When you go to a rental company, you can request a certain size of car, but it is unlikely that you will be able to rent a specific model of car. This is because when you get to the car rental company, the car that you will rent is going to be selected from the group of rental cars that are available on the car lot that day. With a Turo car rental, you are guaranteed to be able to rent the exact, make and model, year and option car that you desire. It all seems a great idea, and it could be, but there are some considerations to keep in mind, if you use your car for Turo and it turns out to be a lemon car.

All Lemon Cars Get the Chance for the Car Dealership to Fix the Problem

Whether you are using your car for a Turo car service or not, if you have a new car or a used car still under the original manufacturer’s warranty, you have a chance to get it fixed by the car dealership. The California Lemon Laws note that if you have a car with a defect, that you have to give it to the car dealership where you bought it or an authorized dealership, to get it fixed. Typically, the car dealership has a reasonable number of times to fix the car. This is usually between two to three times or so, to try to fix the problem. Just so that you know, the car dealership shop will need to use a process to fix your lemon car, and all of them are going to have a different approach to fixing your lemon car.

What Is the Car Dealership Shop Process to Fix a Lemon Car?

An auto dealership mechanic shop will have its own procedure, as to how they go about fixing or trying to fix your lemon car. For example, some car dealership shops know of the problem already, and have the parts continually on order, when you bring your car back to get fixed when it is a lemon. Other times, the shop will need to first diagnose the problem, determine if they have the right parts, and then they can get the car back in to fix the issue. Still other times, the car dealership shop will need to contact the manufacturer, to determine if the car manufacturer is aware of the issue, if there is a mandatory or voluntary recall on the cars in process or upcoming, or if they need to wait on any special parts that will be sent to the dealership to fix the lemon issue.

All this being said, it may take a few times for your car to go back and forth to the car dealership shop to get it fixed. In the case that the car dealership shop cannot fix your lemon car, then it is going to be up to the manufacturer to then consider giving you a new vehicle. This is arranged by the car manufacturer buying back your vehicle, and replacing it with another one of similar type. In life, this should be an easy process. But in reality, this is a difficult process to accomplish on your own, and you will benefit from talking to us at the Guardian Lemon Law Group to help you get the recovery compensation that you deserve in this type of case.

Common Defects Plaguing Cars That Are Later Determined to Be Lemon Vehicles

Cars that are determined to be a lemon vehicle often have similar issues wrong with the car. Sometimes, these flaws are safety related, and can affect the ability to safely drive your vehicle. In many ways, if a car is unsafe, it should not be on the roadways at all. But they are on the roadways, and an unsafe car that is a lemon vehicle may be sitting in your driveway right now.

Some unsafe conditions can include if the car is:

  • Shuddering on starting or turning off the engine
  • Vibrations felt throughout the car
  • Sensor problems for the airbags
  • Hearing rattling noises when the engine is turned off
  • Fuel pump issues
  • Transmission flaws and failures
  • Brake pedal softness or sponginess
  • No starting when turning on the ignition switch

It is not unusual that a lemon car can have more than one major safety feature to fail on the vehicle. When this happens, the result may be that the car may be completely unsafe to drive on the open roads. If you have noticed that you are experiencing safety issues in your car, and it makes it a lemon vehicle, you can call us today at the Guardian Lemon Law Group at 888.341.8537 to discuss your claim for free right now.

Recent Victories of Consumers from Lemon Law Claims Against Car Manufacturers

There will be more and more recent victories of consumers against the car manufacturers, as those manufacturers realize they are fully responsible for a lemon vehicle that they produced. A recent victory is a lawsuit paid by Toyota Motor Corp for $1.1 billion to settle a class action lawsuit. This lawsuit was to pay consumers who were damaged when their Toyota vehicles had sudden and unintended acceleration on the cars. These sudden shifts in the vehicles lead to many different types of accidents, some of which were fatal.

In the end, there were issues with the floor accelerator pedals and some flooring mats that were caught unknown by the driver, under the pedals that caused the unintended acceleration. Toyota was responsible as a car manufacturer, as it was a defect that the company could have advised the public about, but the manufacturer failed to do this to persevere the value of their vehicles. All in all, the judgment shows that car manufacturers will not get away with allowing dangerous defects to plague their vehicles, without taking full responsibility for the injury and damages that are caused to the public as a result.
