An Audi “lemon” is a luxury car, convertible or SUV that has a chronic defect and doesn’t live up to the standards of a safe, reliable vehicle. Whether it’s electrical system problems, faulty door locks, a failing engine or many other problems, an Audi lemon never functions correctly no matter how many times you take it to a mechanic. To determine whether you have an Audi lemon law claim, check to see whether your vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s warranty. If it is, you probably have a claim. If you own a used vehicle, then you will need one of three specific warranties to have an Audi lemon law claim. These warranties are discussed in greater detail in a separate section below. Either way, you need to have made a “reasonable number of attempts” to get your Audi repaired before filing a legal claim. Find out more in: Do You Have a Lemon?
The Lemon Law in California requires that your Audi must have “nonconformities,” which are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty or Certified Pre-Owned Warranty. Nonconformities compromise the use, value or safety of the vehicle. A skilled and experienced Audi lemon law attorney can explain in greater detail what qualifies as a “nonconformity.” Call us at 888-407-2955.
Under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (lemon law), if it turns out that you have an Audi lemon, your options are (1) to have the manufacturer repurchase or replace your vehicle or (2) negotiate a cash settlement with Audi. When you hire Neale & Fhima, our lemon law lawyers will help you take a look at your options so you can make an informed decision.
The process commences by filing a claim against Audi. One of our lemon law attorneys at Neale & Fhima can do this for you. Our attorneys expect resistance from the manufacturer because the company’s lawyers work hard to limit Audi’s liability, but we are fierce and undeterred. Our aggressive Audi lemon law attorneys pride themselves on creating legal strategies that give our clients the best possible opportunities to succeed. Find out more in:The Lemon Law Claims Process.
To prevail in an Audi lemon law claim, you will have to show that you made “reasonable attempts” to have the problem repaired. Therefore, you will want to keep all receipts, work orders, and repair orders from each one of your repair appointments with the Audi dealership. State law does not define “reasonable attempts” with precision, but a Neale & Fhima attorney can explain the guidelines that help determine whether you have an Audi lemon.
The statute of limitations for filing a lemon law claim in California is four years from the date you knew or should have known that the vehicle was a lemon. This does not mean that if you have had your vehicle for more than 4 years, you cannot bring a lemon law claim. Our attorneys at Neale & Fhima have successfully “lemoned” vehicles that are over 10 years old. If you have purchased or leased a lemon, you’ll want to start the buyback process as soon as possible. After the statute of limitations has passed, a judge may dismiss your case, but don’t hesitate to contact our team if you have questions about the statute of limitations. Collect copies of your repair bills, work orders, and receipts and call a skilled lemon law lawyer today.
Some used cars are covered under California’s Lemon Law, depending on whether your car has a warranty. If you bought the car “as is,” then the law does not apply, unless you can prove that fraud was involved. But if you have one of three specific warranties, then it’s possible that you are protected. To qualify, you must have one of the following:
An experienced Audi lemon law attorney can explain these three warranties and help you determine whether you have one.
Yes, if you can prove that you have a lemon, you have an appropriate warranty, and you’ve made reasonable attempts to have the Audi repaired. These are specific thresholds that must be met to be successful in a lawsuit.
