Skilled BMW Lemon Law Attorneys in Los Angeles, California
At Century Law Group, LLP, our California lemon law attorneys know that when you buy a new or used BMW that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, you typically have a lot more confidence in the vehicle’s reliability.
The belief is, if a mechanical issue should arise, the warranty will step in and cover the costs to fix it.
But what happens when the BMW’s defect cannot be fixed, despite multiple attempts?
The California Lemon Law protects you from being stuck with a defective vehicle that is still under warranty, and facilitates the legal requirements necessary to hold the manufacturer liable for the defect.
Here is what you need to know if they have purchased a defective BMW.
Does the California Lemon Law Apply to All BMW Vehicle Models?
The California Lemon Law applies to all new or used BMW cars or SUVs that meet certain criteria that prove they are, indeed, a “lemon.”
First, the BMW must have been purchased or leased in California, and still be under the manufacturer’s warranty.
Next, we must establish one of the following is true:
- The BMW defect is so significant it affects the vehicle’s use, value, or safety, and has not been repaired after two attempts
- There is a substantial problem with the BMW that has not been fixed after four repair attempts
- The vehicle has spent more than a total of 30 days at the dealership or with another certified mechanic, regardless of the defect, even if the days were not consecutive
If your BMW car or SUV is exhibiting signs of being a lemon, contact our experienced lemon law attorneys in California today to schedule a free consultation. We will outline your legal rights and options to pursue BMW for a swift remedy, so you can get safely back on the road.
How Will I Know if My BMW Defect Qualifies as a Lemon in California?
BMW models of all types, including coupes, sedans, convertibles, and SUVs have been deemed lemons throughout California over the past decade, including the “i” Series, 5-Series, 7-Series, and “X” Series Sports Utility Vehicles.
The reality is, vehicle defects can occur to any new or used car or SUV, turning any BMW into a lemon without notice.
While this is not an exhaustive list, common BMW mechanical issues that could lead to a lemon law claim in California may include:
- Airbag defects
- Battery dies regularly or drains irregularly
- Braking problems
- Check engine lights
- Non-working door locks
- Electrical system issues
- Engine malfunctions, including overheating
- Faulty coolant systems
- Non-working fuel gauges and speedometer
- Fuel pump defects
- Oil leaks
- Poor acceleration
- Power braking system leaks
- Steering problems
- Transmission issues
BMWs are high-quality vehicles that are purchased for their sleek builds and powerful operating capacity. So, when something goes wrong mechanically, it can be more than just disappointing, but expensive and unsafe.
You do not have to endure the frustration of living with a BMW that is a lemon. We can help you hold the manufacturer liable for your full recovery.
What Do I Need to Help Prove My BMW is a Lemon in California?
Whether the BMW defect stems from design issues or manufacturing mistakes, it is important to establish that it is a lemon as soon as legally possible. Once you have satisfied the legal requirements for the reasonable number of attempts to fix the defect, you can break free from the constant trips to the dealership or certified mechanic and get back into a reliable BMW.
Keep all receipts, work orders, and dealership analysis, so you can create a timeline of the vehicle’s decline.
Next, contact our skilled California lemon law attorneys to gain access to the legal resources you need to pursue BMW for a replacement vehicle or buyback option that fits your unique needs.
How Long Do I Have to File a BMW Lemon Law Claim in Los Angeles, California?
California’s Lemon Law has a four-year statute of limitations to pursue BMW for your defective vehicle recovery needs.
However, the sooner you pursue a BMW lemon law claim, the better. The longer you wait, the manufacturer will insist the vehicle’s mechanical issue was caused by normal wear and tear or failure to maintain the vehicle. Neither of which is covered by the California Lemon Law.
If you are experiencing mechanical issues with your BMW car or SUV, and believe it may be defective, we can help you determine if you have a legitimate case during a free consultation.
