So what are the time limits to file a California Lemon Law claim? Consumers who believe they have a car that qualifies as a lemon have a limited time period to file a lemon lawsuit or buyback claim with the manufacturer.
Four-Year Deadline for California Lemon Law Claims
Consumers who have purchased a car, truck or SUV whose manufacturer is unable to repair the vehicle or there is a substantial defect that impairs the use, value or safety of the vehicle may have a claim. However, this claim must be made within the four-year statute of limitations to be valid. Under California Lemon Laws, consumers must file the claim within this time limit or otherwise lose their opportunity.
So when does the statute of limitations begin? The law states that the lemon law statute begins at the time the consumer knew or should have known that their vehicle was a lemon.
The easiest way to determine if you have a car that is a lemon is to call an experienced Lemon Law Attorney for a free consultation.
Some consumers mistakenly try to avoid litigation and believe if they can file a claim directly with the manufacturer and avoid the courts, but doing so will not stop the statute of limitations from expiring. If you believe your car is a lemon, contact an experienced California Lemon Law Attorney who will file a claim on your behalf and ensure your case has the best chance of succeeding.
