Experienced Hyundai Lemon Law Attorneys in Los Angeles, California
At Century Law Group, LLP, our California lemon law attorneys know that last year alone, just over 622,250 Hyundai vehicles were sold in the U.S.
Unfortunately, not all those vehicles made it into the consumers’ hands without certain defects that substantially affect their use, value, or safety.
If you have purchased or leased a Hyundai that is under warranty and showing signs of a mechanical, electrical, or structural defect that cannot be fixed by the dealership or certified mechanic, you may be eligible to file a California Lemon Law claim.
Here is what you need to know about pursuing the manufacturer for a legal remedy that will allow you to move forward with confidence.
Are All Hyundai Vehicles Protected by the California Lemon Law?
The California Lemon Law protects you from being stuck with a defective Hyundai, once you can prove that the manufacturer, dealership, or certified mechanic cannot repair the issue after a reasonable number of attempts.
A reasonable number of attempts include:
- Two or more attempts to repair an issue that could cause death or serious bodily injury.
- Four or more attempts to repair the same issue covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
- A Hyundai that has been out of service for repairs for more than 30 days total — not consecutively.
If your Hyundai is under the manufacturer’s warranty, and has met the legal threshold to qualify as a “lemon” all vehicle makes and models apply, including the:
- i-Series, including i10, i20, i30, and i40 vehicles
- Mega Truck
- New Power Truck
- Santa Fe, Santa Fe Sport, and Santa Fe XL
If you have purchased or leased a Hyundai that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty and is exhibiting signs of being defective, contact our experienced lemon law attorneys in California today to schedule a free consultation.

What You Should Do If Believe Your Hyundai is a Lemon
Knowing that the California Lemon Law is here to help protect you from being stuck with a vehicle that is a lemon is a start.
However, you must prove that is true before Hyundai will take your claim seriously.
First, you will need to give Hyundai the reasonable number of attempts outlined above to repair your vehicle.
Each time you take your Hyundai to the dealership or a certified mechanic, be sure to keep all the paperwork and documentation provided and make notes about their feedback when you pick the car, truck, or SUV up.
If the dealership cannot fix the defect after a reasonable number of attempts, it is time to discuss your legal options with a California lemon law attorney.
Ideally, our California Lemon Law attorney would like to have a detailed record or log of each car repair attempt, including the service dates, times, location, and the diagnostic records and notes listing the problem and how it was — or was not — resolved
The more information you have regarding the vehicle’s repairs attempts, the stronger your case will be.
In addition, our California lemon lawyers will need to review the original Hyundai purchase or lease agreement, including the manufacturer’s warranty that came with the car, truck, or SUV.
This paperwork will help our California lemon law attorneys determine the amount of money you may be entitled to or the overall value of a replacement Hyundai the manufacturer must provide to settle your claim.
What Happens When I Win a Lemon Law Claim in California?
Under the California Lemon Law, consumers are eligible for three possible remedies once we can prove the manufacturer is responsible for the defect.
The manufacturer may:
- Repurchase your Hyundai
- Replace your Hyundai
- Offer a cash settlement for your Hyundai
To help ensure your case is successful, our California lemon law attorneys at Century Law Group will outline the repair attempts and submit all the necessary supporting paperwork to prove the Hyundai’s defect substantially affects its use, value, or safety.
The statute of limitations for filing a Ford lemon law claim in California is four years from the date when you first discovered a potential defect.
