Is my Vehicle Covered under the California Lemon Law? 

Before you can proceed with a lemon complaint, you must ensure that your vehicle meets the eligibility requirements, which are as follows:  

  • The vehicle must have been purchased from an authorized dealership or directly from the manufacturer.
  • Your vehicle’s defect, which significantly compromises it’s safety or usability, is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • You’ve given the manufacturer a reasonable number of repair attempts, but the issue with your car has not been resolved.  

Make sure to take your car to the dealership where you bought / leased it from, or to an authorized repair center. Tring to fix the problem yourself or taking it to a mechanic that’s not authorized by the manufacturer will most likely invalidate your warranty. Without a valid warranty, you will not be able to procced with a lemon complaint, so it’s extremely important that you follow this step.

In addition, you must allow at least 4 repair attempts by the dealership before you can go ahead with a lemon claim. However, if the problem with your car is so serious that it’s likely to cause an accident, the manufacturer has no more than 2 chances to fix your car. You can also go by the number of days your car has been at the dealership or repair center. If the total number of days that your car has spent in the repair shop exceeds 30 days, you are allowed to proceed with a lemon case.

Of course, succeeding in a lemon case is easier said than done if you are not fluent in English. That means you have to rely on translation tools or other people in your life to help you understand the laws. This can create all sorts of misunderstandings, which can lead to a dismissal of your claim or having to settle for less what your case is worth. That’s why you must contact a Spanish speaking car / auto / truck defect attorney as soon as possible.

Bilingual Lemon Law Attorneys that are Fluent in Spanish 

Dealerships are courteous and helpful when you come in to make a purchase. But their friendly demeanor is likely to disappear when you try to assert your rights under the state’s lemon law. We see this quite often with Spanish speaking consumers, who are blatantly ignored or misled on their right to compensation. This bias is unacceptable to us, which is why we are so passionate about the cases we handle on behalf of consumers just like you.

What kind of Damages can I Recover?

If you are eligible for a lemon claim, the main portion of your settlement will be based on the price of your vehicle at the time of purchase/ lease. You have the option to ask for a replacement vehicle of equivalent value or a full refund of what you paid for the car, plus collateral costs like sales tax and finance charges. On top of that, you can ask for any expenses that are tied to your car’s unresolved issues, like the cost of towing fees and rideshare services. If your car’s defect was serious enough to cause an accident and you were injured as a result, you can also demand medical expenses, lost income, and various other damages through a personal injury claim.

Average Case Value of a California Lemon Claim

First, it’s important to understand that each case is different, due to the losses that are specific to each lemon owner. But if we had to give a range of estimates, we would say that a California lemon lawsuit is worth around $15,000 to over $350,000 based on a number of factors. As we mentioned in the previous section, the contract price of your vehicle and your out of pocket costs are the primary factors when we determine what your case is worth. But there may be other fees you are entitled to, including a civil penalty payment if the manufacturer committed a willful violation of California’s lemon law. This means you can receive an additional sum for up to two times your settlement value. For example, if you are due $25,000 from a lemon claim, the manufacturer may be ordered to pay you an extra $50,000.

Don’t worry if this information is a bit overwhelming right now. We are available to answer all your questions in Spanish during a free consultation at our office.

How long does it take to Settle a Lemon Case? 

It’s tough to quote a specific amount of time in which these cases are settled, as there are many complications that may happen during the legal process, which we cannot predict ahead of time. For the majority of cases, we can achieve a settlement within 3 to 6 months. In some cases, we get lucky and the manufacturer is willing to settle in just 30 days. However, some claims are much more complex than others, and it may take over a year to resolve your case from start to finish. No matter how long it takes, know that we’re with you every step of the way. We will not ignore your calls or put your case on the back burner because someone else’s lawsuit is more important. Once you join the Guardian family, you can count on us to fight tirelessly for your settlement.

Is there a Deadline to Sue the Manufacturer?

Yes, in California, you have 4 years to act on a compensation claim if it turns out that your car is a lemon. The big question is, when does the 4-year statute of limitations begin? The answer depends on the type of lemon claim you are filing, as well as your personal circumstances. It’s important to get this right, since the courts are very strict about the deadline to file a lemon claim. If you exceed the statute of limitations that applies to your case, it’s more than likely that you will lose the right to sue the manufacturer. To avoid a denial of your claim, please contact us right away and get started on a lemon case with one of our Spanish speaking lawyers.
