Most Common Faults in Vehicles Qualifying as Lemons

The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (or California Lemon Law) protects consumers who either purchase or lease faulty vehicles, motorcycles, and other types of motor vehicles. However, if you are not acquainted with Lemon Laws, it can be incredibly challenging to understand what protections lemon laws offer you as a consumer. In short, lemon laws protect consumers when their vehicle is defective or faulty, resulting in any negative effects that influence the vehicles, use, value, and/or safety. A consumer often proves these negative effects by providing a paper trail that shows they had to take their vehicle into the shop to be repaired an “unreasonable” amount of times during their warranty’s validity period.

What Common Problems Should I Keep an Eye Out For?

There are many common issues that we typically see in lemon law claims when it comes to the types of problems that consumers experience and try to repair under their vehicle warranty. The issue arises when consumers who are unfamiliar with lemon law or their rights as an owner or operator of a vehicle do not realize that some of these repairs may qualify their vehicle as a lemon. Below we’ve included a list and described some of the most common vehicle problems  experienced by owners of lemons.

Defects With your Pedal Related to Brakes and Acceleration

This defect significantly influences the overall safety of your vehicle. If your pedals are any way defective and changes your ability to speed up or slow down your vehicle, you are at significantly higher risk for an accident every time you take your car on the road.

Defects With Your Air Conditioning

California has one of the hottest temperature climates in the U.S. So, any air conditioning defects that you experience with your vehicle can have a significantly negative impact on the value and use of your car.

Lock Defects

No matter where you live, it's incredibly common for people to store valuable items in their car while running errands or overnight. For this reason, vehicle owners should be able to trust that their car locks function properly so that they can feel confident knowing that nothing will be stolen and that your car will be perfectly intact every time you return.

Battery or Engine Issues

A consumer should be able to trust that their engine and battery are running properly at all times. Defects in these essential car parts can be detrimental if something goes wrong on the road.

Electrical Defects

Many times, an electrical defect arises with a vehicle manifesting itself with the audio, the infotainment system, or other related electrical miscues. Defects of this nature not only effect the value of the vehicle, but often times the safety as well.
