When it comes to our California Lemon Law, consumers are equally protected – regardless of what your car costs. It can be a $199/mo. lease on a Hyundai, a inexpensive (or expensive) used car still under factory warranty at purchase, or the purchase of a $209,000 Bentley. The California lemon law is fair for everybody. It’s not price dependent. It’s WARRANTY dependent. It’s also not dependent upon new or used, leased or purchased. So long as it was purchased or leased from a dealership licensed by the DMW to sell cars, and it’s covered by a factory warranty, it can be a California Lemon Law potential candidate. What our California Lemon Law primarily looks for is repeated documented repair attempts for the same substantial issue/complaint under factory warranty. An “unreasonable” number of warranty repair attempts. How do you know if you qualify for California Lemon Law protection AND free legal representation? If your vehicle is a 2013 or newer (whether currently in factory warranty or not), and has a history of in-warranty repair visits, simply use this link for a free case evaluation. https://californialemonlawattorneys.com/upload-your-repair-documents/
PLEASE NOTE: repairs made under “extended warranties” purchased on vehicles out of factory warranty are excluded from our California Lemon Law, as well as vehicle’s purchased “private party”. “AS-IS” used cars have no warranty, unless there is remaining time/miles left on the original manufacturer’s limited new vehicle warranty, or Certified Pre-Owned warranty.

I had many issues with my Ford Focus. I was taking it into the shop more than enjoying my new car. I became frustrated and didn't know what to do. I found Law Offices of William McGee and decided to give them a try. I am so glad I did. They walked me through the process of filing a lemon law on my Ford and clearly communicated the documents needed. They took care of everything else. I was super happy with the outcome. Definitely recommend them. Thanks!

I received a great settlement on my 2012 Ford Focus. A little background: soon after I purchased my vehicle I noticed irregular shuddering, which is a major problem with the year and model. The problem persisted for several years and resulted in multiple trips to the dealer, many hours of work and personal time lost, and hundreds of dollars in costs. I spoke with an expert at the firm and they assured me that not only would I qualify for a settlement, but that it would be completely free of charge for me. The process went flawlessly, the service and follow up was amazing, and within 3 months I received a very large check (over 7k!) from Ford as a settlement. Without this company I'd likely be in the process of selling my car at a massive loss and completely clueless on how to resolve the issue. Highly recommend for anyone with a vehicle with constant problems!
