Experienced Dodge Lemon Law Attorneys in Los Angeles, California
At Century Law Group, LLP, our California lemon law attorneys know that driving a defective Dodge means more than frustrating and repeated trips to the dealership. It can also jeopardize your safety, placing you and your family in danger each time you get behind the wheel.
That is why we are here. Our lemon lawyers represent clients throughout California who unknowingly leased or purchased a Dodge car, truck, or SUV that has a persistent defect that cannot be repaired after a “reasonable” number of attempts.
Here is what you need to know about how the California Lemon Law can protect you from being burdened with a potentially dangerous vehicle.
Are All Dodge Vehicles Covered by the California Lemon Law?
While the Dodge brand is synonymous with dependability, it does not insulate the manufacturer from building and distributing vehicles that may have a defect.
The California Lemon Law protects all Dodge vehicle owners who have purchased or leased the brand’s cars, trucks, or SUVs once they have made a reasonable number of attempts to have a defect repaired, only for it to remain once they leave the dealership or certified mechanic.
The reasonable number of attempts required to pursue a lemon law claim in California includes:
- Two or more repair attempts for an issue that could cause serious bodily injury or death.
- Four or more attempts to repair the same problem that is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
- A Dodge that has been out of service for repairs for more than 30 days total — not consecutively.
The California Lemon Law protects all Dodge owners whose vehicles are still under the manufacturer’s warranty, including:
- Grand Caravan
If you are driving a Dodge that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty and is exhibiting signs of one or more defective components, contact our experienced lemon law attorneys in California today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your rights and options to pursue the manufacturer for a legal remedy.
What Are the Most Common Defects Associated with Dodge Vehicles?
Whether it is a consistent mechanical problem that is common across certain Dodge makes and models, or a seemingly random component malfunction that cannot be fixed, consumers are listing a wide range of potential defects associated with Dodge vehicles.
- Acceleration problems
- Consistently illuminated check engine light
- Cruise control malfunctions
- Doors lock or unlock on their own
- Electrical failure
- Engine cranks but will not start
- Engine stalls
- Faulty brake pads/rotors
- Fuel system defects
- Power window failure
- Rough gear shifting
- Transmission leaks and failures
- Vibrating axles
If you purchased or leased a defective Dodge in California that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, you may be eligible to file a lemon law claim against the manufacturer. Our skilled California lemon law attorneys can help you determine your eligibility during a free consultation.
What Steps Should I Take to Pursue a Dodge Lemon Law Claim in California?
While most Californians are familiar with the lemon laws that protect them from driving a defective vehicle, many are unsure how to pursue a claim.
We can help.
First, compile all the paperwork from the dealership or certified mechanic that identifies the Dodge’s defect. The documents should list the when, where, and the number of times you have attempted to repair the defect, and what the outcome was, so we can confirm your circumstances are eligible to file a lemon law claim in California.
Next, gather the documents related to the Dodge’s purchase. That may include the lease or purchase agreement and the manufacturer’s warranty.
Contact us as soon as you have the paperwork in hand, so our Dodge lemon law attorneys in California can review each detail and outline the legal remedy that is best for your unique case.
What Legal Remedies Are Available During a Dodge Lemon Law Claim in California?
Under the California Lemon Law, you are entitled to three potential legal remedies once our attorneys can prove you have a legitimate case against the manufacturer.
They include cash compensation to offset the defect, a replacement vehicle, or a full refund for the vehicle, minus the mileage usage to date.
In most successful Dodge lemon law cases in California, the manufacturer is responsible for our legal fees, so you pay nothing out of pocket for our representation.
Contact our experienced Dodge lemon law attorneys in California today to learn more about the legal process, so you can reach a resolution that is right for your unique needs.
How Long Do I Have to File a Dodge Lemon Law Claim in California?
The statute of limitations for filing a Dodge lemon law claim in California is four years from the date when you first discovered a potential defect.
The sooner you have your Dodge serviced, the better your chances of pursuing a successful lemon law claim, as normal wear and tear on a vehicle or the owner’s failure to generally maintain the vehicle are not grounds for a lemon law claim.
At Century Law Group, we must present the necessary evidence to the manufacturer that your Dodge is defective. Once you have made multiple trips to the dealership or certified mechanic for the same problem without a solution, it is time to contact our lemon law firm in California for help.
