What are some tips if I think I have a Lemon Law claim?

Being informed on your vehicle’s potential problems, as well as looking out for red flags in your vehicle, are the best ways to avoid being stuck with a lemon. Before you buy your vehicle, you should look for known issues and recalls. However, if you find yourself dealing with a lemon, it is important to know what you should do to have the best possible outcome for your lemon law claim.

Keep personal records

If you believe you have a lemon on your hands and want the best outcome for your claim, you will need to keep all your records. When you experience any problem - even if you don’t take your vehicle to the dealership - document it. Write down the problem you are experiencing or take a photograph or video. When you do go to the dealership, keep notes of the date you went in, what you complained about, what they diagnosed, and how much they charged. If you have verbal conversations with anyone at the dealership, make sure you write down what they said and when they said it.

Can the dealership repossess my vehicle?

Can the dealership repossess my vehicle?

There are times when a dealership is allowed to repossess your vehicle and times when the law prohibits them. Dealerships will often attempt every loophole possible to skirt these laws and hope that people are misinformed on what’s legal and what is not if a dealership fails to follow specific rules and forces you to return your vehicle without your consent, there at times where they may have conducted an illegal repossession. When you purchase a vehicle, the dealership must find a lender to finance the agreement. The dealership generally writes in a ten-day window into an agreement, but it can be longer. If you are current on your payments and the dealership is not able to find a lender after that window, they cannot legally repossess your vehicle because of that reason. The dealership will be required to step into the role of the lender and finance the agreement. Dealerships are generally allowed to legally repossess your vehicle if you miss a payment, even if the payment is missed by a day or two.

Can I return my vehicle to the dealership?

Can I return my vehicle to the dealership?

Many people have often asked themselves if they are allowed to return their vehicle after they purchased it. Buyers are allowed to purchase a “cooling-off” period when they purchase their vehicle. On the other hand, the dealership does not have to pay anything to get their cooling-off period. Just about every deal agreement in California incorporates fine print that allows a dealership to request the buyer to return the vehicle within ten days if they are unable to find a lender.

The Cooling-off Period

California’s laws allow you to purchase a cooling-off period for a pre-owned vehicle that costs under $40,000. However, it’s only for two days, and you need to pay for it before you leave the dealership with the vehicle! If you choose not to purchase the cooling-off period, the dealership will make you sign paperwork confirming that you are opting out of the cooling-off period. The dealership salespersons are trained to tell you that once you leave, you will not be allowed to return the vehicle under any circumstance.

That is not necessarily true. Just because you did not purchase a cooling-off period, it does not mean that there is never a situation that will allow you to return your vehicle and get your money back. If the dealership did something incorrectly during the deal, you might be able to return your vehicle and get all your money back. Most types of incorrect and sometimes illegal activity from the dealership

Why is it important to keep accurate repair records?

When you purchase or lease your vehicle, you have an expectation that your vehicle will work properly. Unfortunately, problems tend to appear as you drive your vehicle. When problems start occurring, it is extremely important that you immediately take your vehicle to an authorized repair facility. If the authorized repair facility, usually the "big" dealerships, attempts to repair your vehicle two or more times for the same problem within the warranty period and the problem is not fixed, chances are that the vehicle will qualify as a lemon. This is where it's important to have accurate records. When you take your vehicle into a service facility, you want to make sure that the service advisor properly documents what you told them on the service records. If you tell them that you hear a noise from the front of the vehicle, make sure that they write it down properly. When a dealership sees that a vehicle has come in for the same problem two or more times, they may take what you said and write it down a little bit different so that it does not appear that you are complaining about the same problems. When you bring your vehicle into an authorized repair facility, a service advisor will ask you what problems you are having with your vehicle and write them down. Sometimes, they will get into the vehicle with you and ask you to demonstrate or show them what problems you are having. It is important that the service advisor documents your problems even if the problems do
