- Window problems, such as a faulty clip that causes power windows to move slowly or not at all.
- Ventilation system problems caused by cracked hoses and intake boots as well as vacuum leaks
- Electrical issues causing the radio or lights to malfunction
- Engine issues, including problems with the clutch, injectors, and ignition.
California Lemon Law
Brand-new cars always come with a manufacturer warranty, whether they are purchased or leased. Cars covered by this type of factory warranty and have mechanical or other issues also fall under the lemon law. These issues are those that endanger your safety, lower the vehicle's value, or make it unusable. Here are the specific criteria used to determine whether a car is a lemon:
- At least four repairs for the same issue, starting during the factory warranty period
- At least two repairs for an issue that could be seriously injurious or fatal, starting during the factory warranty period
- 30 or more days during the factory warranty period when you were unable to use the car
If these criteria apply, you are likely eligible for compensation or a replacement vehicle. A lemon lawyer can help you get justice.The lemon law is designed to protect those who buy or lease a new car that needs significant, frequent repairs for the same problem.
