Common vehicle defects in a California lemon law claim
Determining your vehicle's eligibility for a California lemon law claim is the first step. Your verification of the vehicle's defects, as well as your various attempts to repair it, are valuable in deciding if your vehicle is a lemon. A defect can be any problem with the:
- water/oil leaks
- paint defects
- bad smells
- almost any other defective condition that you've attempted to repair without success.
Your repair orders and invoices are valuable documents in proving dates of repair service, total amount of time your vehicle was out of service, what the complaint was when you dropped it off, whether it was satisfactorily repaired or not, and generally to show a history of the vehicle's performance.
