How Do I Know If My Car Is A Lemon?
The Indiana poet Jim Riley coined the famous Duck Test, “If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and swims like a duck, then it probably is a duck!” To some extent, the same applies to lemons – while the legal tests to determine whether your vehicle qualifies are nuanced, if you feel like your car might be a lemon, then it’s time to speak with a legal professional. There are many different ways that a vehicle can qualify under California law. For instance, a common standard is whether or not the vehicle’s defects have been fixed after a reasonable number of repair attempts. If your car isn’t fixed after a reasonable number of tries, then it is likely a lemon. Another standard considers how many days the vehicle has been out of service. If your vehicle has been in the shop for an extended period of time, then it could qualify, as well. Because California’s laws are nuanced and there are many ways that a vehicle can be a lemon, the best way to find out is to call us: (833) LEMON-FIRM. After a short, free consultation, we will let you know if we can help.
What Type of Vehicles Do You Assist With?
All of them: new, used, purchased, leased, expensive, economical, foreign, domestic, sports cars, SUV’s, gasoline, hybrid, electric… you name it – we have done it all. In fact, CCA has represented clients throughout the state against virtually every automaker. (See: our “Success Stories”). We assist with respect to both “new” and “used” vehicles, as long as the vehicle’s issues were covered by the original factory warranty. We, generally, do not assist with issues such as, “dealership fraud,” “independent repair shops,” or “service contracts.” If your vehicle’s problems were covered by the factory warranty and took too long to fix, we can probably help you. Call us at (833) LEMON-FIRM for a free consultation.
How Much Do CCA’s Services Cost Me?
Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Bupkis. You pay us nothing! 100% of CCA’s fees are paid for by the automakers. It costs you nothing to sign up, nothing for us to take your case, and nothing for us to get you an exceptional result. Also, CCA forwards all litigation costs for you and gets repaid by the auto manufacturer.
What Monetary Damages Are Available to Me If My Car Is A Lemon?
Under California’s lemon law, if your call qualifies, you are entitled to have it bought back or replaced. As a matter of fact, manufacturers have an “affirmative duty” to repurchase or replace defective or unfixable vehicles. When they fail to do so, the law in California also allows a “civil penalty” to be imposed against the automakers, in certain cases. If you review our Success Stories, you will see that the majority of our clients received their money back and much more. Call us today to learn more about how CCA’s exceptional legal team can get you the highest possible settlement: (833) LEMON-FIRM.
Can I Handle My Lemon Law Claim, Myself?
Probably not. The automakers are major international corporations that pay major international law firms major bucks to hoodwink consumers. In truth, as smart as you are, if you’re not an experienced lemon law attorney, you will be severely outgunned when facing automakers and their bevy of attorneys. CCA knows how to handle these folks and win. What is more, CCA’s exceptional services come at no cost to you and we don’t get paid unless we win – so you have nothing to lose by hiring us. Call (833) LEMON-FIRM today for a free consultation.
I’m Quite Busy – Is This Going to Take Up Much of My Time?
Not at all. Your initial consultation, which is free, just takes a few minutes by phone. After that, we will ask you to send us your documents by email, fax or mail (we are happy to send you a self-addressed stamped envelope). Then, you will have a slightly more involved conversation (about 30-minutes) so that CCA’s legal team can really get to know you and learn more about your case. From there, we do most of the work without bothering you. While we will not need much of your time, CCA will always be at your service and ready to answer any questions that you may have.
I Already Tried to Get My Car Bought Back and They Said, “No.” What now?
Call us: (883) LEMON-FIRM. Just because they manufacturer told you your car isn’t a lemon, it certainly doesn’t mean that your car isn’t a lemon. Automakers are like their dealerships – they are in the business of selling cars; not buying them back. They are certainly not looking out for your best interests. As a matter of fact, we have had dozens of clients whose repurchase requests were initially rejected, only for the automakers to change their tune once we got involved. If you think your car is a lemon, there’s a good chance your right. With the help of an experienced lemon law attorney, you can have it replaced, repurchased, and much more. Call CCA for a free consultation: (833) LEMON-FIRM.
I Use My Car for Work. Can I Still Qualify?

They Finally Fixed My Car; But I’m Worried It Will Break Again.
California strong consumer protection laws provide that manufacturers must fix warranty defects within a reasonable number of attempts. Even if your car is fixed (for now), if it has taken too long to fix it or if you have lost confidence in the vehicle, then it may qualify under the lemon law. That’s the time to call CCA – California’s foremost lemon law firm: (833) LEMON-FIRM.
