You’ve reached that milestone in life where you’re buying a luxury car and feel good about all you’ve accomplished. But after choosing an Audi and driving it out of the dealership, you begin to notice odd noises or mechanical and electrical problems with the vehicle. Rather than getting frustrated, contact an Audi Lemon Law attorney today.
California has one of the most consumer-friendly Audi lemon laws in the nation, and a skilled lawyer at Neale & Fhima can help determine whether you have a legal claim. Under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, if you purchase a defective Audi that has a manufacturer’s warranty, you are legally entitled to a refund, or the vehicle can be replaced at Audi’s cost. Even if you purchased a used Audi, you may have a lemon law claim. At Neale & Fhima, we fight Audi to enforce the lemon law rights of our clients. Call us at (888) 407-2955 for a free initial consultation about your case.
Is Your Audi a Lemon?
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 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 statute of limitations under California’s Lemon Law is four years from the purchase date to file a claim. If you have purchased or leased a lemon, start collecting copies of your repair orders and call an Audi lemon law attorney at Neale & Fhima right away.
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.
How Does the Audi Lemon Law Buyback Work?
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.
Audi Lemon Law and Used Cars
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:
- Transferred New Car Warranty
- Lemon Law Buyback Warranty
- Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty
An experienced Audi lemon law attorney can explain these three warranties and help you determine whether you have one. Rather than trying to figure it out on your own, call Neale & Fhima at (888) 407-2955 for a free consultation.
Will Audi Buy Back My Car?
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.
You do not need any money up front to file an Audi lemon law claim. Neale & Fhima attorneys work on contingency, which means that their fees are paid by the defendant as part of a settlement agreement or jury award. We don’t get paid until you get paid. What have you got to lose?
