How You Can Tell If Your Hyundai Is a Lemon?

A “lemon” is a truck, car, SUV, motorcycle, RV, or other motor vehicle that continues to give you trouble. It may have a variety of problems, such as:

  • A defective engine
  • Faulty transmission
  • A malfunctioning electrical system.

The bottom line: if your Hyundai is a lemon, it will not function correctly, no matter how often you take it in for repairs. Fortunately, if you buy a lemon in California, you are protected under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act. According to this act, you may be able to seek damages as part of a legal claim.

A Hyundai defect lawyer can help you get started with a lemon law legal claim. The lawyer will get information about your lemon and any vehicle defects you are experiencing. Next, the attorney can provide insights to determine if your Hyundai lemon law claim is valid.

What to Expect with A Hyundai Lemon Law Claim?

To determine whether you have a Hyundai lemon law claim, check to see whether your vehicle problems occurred while your vehicle was under the original manufacturer’s warranty. If they did, you probably have a claim. At this point, you may want to contact a California Hyundai lemon law attorney for additional assistance.

If you own a used vehicle in California, you will need one of three specific warranties for a Hyundai lemon law claim. You must also make a “reasonable number of attempts” to get your auto repaired before filing a legal claim. If you frequently try to get your vehicle repaired but are still dealing with the same problem, now may be the time to look for a Hyundai lemon law lawyer in California.

A Hyundai lemon law attorney in California treats each case as its own entity. Initially, the lawyer allocates as much time as needed to review your lemon law claim. In addition, the lawyer can get you up to speed on Hyundai lemon law buyback rules and California’s lemon law.

What You Need to Know about California’s Lemon Law

In California, there are extensive lemon laws to ensure consumers are not left holding a lemon. If it turns out that you have a defective Hyundai vehicle, you have two options. You can have Hyundai repurchase or replace your vehicle or negotiate a cash settlement with the manufacturer.

The lemon law in California stipulates that your vehicle must have “nonconformities,” which are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Nonconformities compromise the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. A skilled and experienced Hyundai lemon law attorney can explain these nonconformities in greater detail and help determine whether you have a claim.

Per the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, you are entitled to compensation if you buy a lemon in California. It can be difficult to receive fair compensation in a lemon law case in California. With help from an experienced California Hyundai lemon law attorney, you can receive plenty of assistance navigating the legal process.

How California’s Lemon Law Applies to Used Cars

Some used Hyundai vehicles are covered under California’s lemon law, depending on whether your car has a warranty. If you have one of three specific warranties, you may have stood to make a claim. Here are the three types of warranties that qualify:

Transferred New Car Warranty

As a buyer of a recent model used Hyundai, you may have a copy of the manufacturer’s new car warranty. When a titled vehicle is sold to a new owner, the Hyundai is still under its original warranty period. Thus, the warranty protections transfer to you for the duration of that period.

Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty

“Certified pre-owned” Hyundai vehicles have more protection than typical used cars. Only authorized dealerships can sell CPOs, so if you bought your Hyundai elsewhere, this warranty would not apply to you. Certified pre-owned means that these used cars have been inspected, repaired, and resold and come with a CPO warranty.

Hyundai Lemon Law Buyback Warranty

If you buy a used Hyundai that was once a lemon (but the manufacturer repaired it and resold it), then you should have received a “lemon law buyback warranty.” Hyundai is required by law to provide new owners of these buyback lemons with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty covering the lemon’s defect. If a Hyundai reseller does not provide this warranty, you can hold this seller accountable.

A Hyundai lemon law attorney can help you determine whether you have the right kind of warranty to proceed with a claim. If so, the attorney can help you file your lemon law claim immediately. Then, the lawyer will work diligently to resolve your claim in as little time as possible.

A Closer Look at The Statute of Limitations for California’s Lemon Law

The statute of limitations under California’s lemon law is four years from the date you knew or should have known your vehicle was a “lemon.” If you have purchased or leased a lemon, start collecting copies of your repair bills and call a lemon law attorney right away. If you wait too long to contact a lawyer, you may lose the right to file a lemon law claim.

If you are worried the statute of limitations will lapse, reach out to a lemon law attorney. When you do, the lawyer can examine your claim and help you move forward with it. Your attorney will serve as your legal representation as you try to get adequate compensation for your lemon.

At Neale & Fhima, our Hyundai lemon law lawyer will help you look at your options to make a good decision regarding your lemon. We fight the big auto manufacturers to enforce the Hyundai lemon law rights of people living in California. If you want to learn about the lemon law in California or file a lemon law claim, we are here to help you in any way we can.

How Hyundai Lemon Law Buyback Works

Before you can capitalize on Hyundai lemon law buyback, you first need to determine if your warranty was in effect at the time any of your vehicle issues occurred. Remembering that service contracts and extended warranties do not count most of the time is paramount. If you have concerns or questions about whether a service contract or extended warranty applies to your lemon law claim, consult with an attorney.

If you have an active warranty, check your paperwork to determine how many repair attempts were made for each particular defect. Also, ensure that the auto manufacturer was allowed to perform a “reasonable number of repair attempts.” If so, talk to an attorney today to help you file the claim.

Ultimately, if a Hyundai defect impacts the use, value, or safety of the vehicle depends on an objective test. It is not enough for you to testify that you think the defect makes your vehicle unsafe to drive. An experienced lemon law attorney can help determine whether a Hyundai vehicle defect has a “substantial impairment” on you or your vehicle in any way.

Common Hyundai Defects That Can Put You at Risk

There is no telling when your Hyundai will show signs of wear and tear, including in the days after you purchase a new or used model. To date, many Hyundai vehicle defects have been reported by consumers in California and across the United States. These include:

  • Steering issues.
  • Check-engine lights.
  • Vehicle will not start properly.
  • Navigation and Radio defects.
  • Braking problems.
  • Faulty windshield wipers.
  • Broken fuel gauges.
  • Electrical malfunction.
  • Poor acceleration.
  • AC does not work.
  • Transmission is not smooth.
  • The speedometer does not work.
  • The door does not lock.

If you experience any of these issues with your Hyundai, get help with them immediately. On top of that, if you believe these issues are due to having a lemon, connect with an attorney. Next, you can work with an attorney who knows California law’s ins and outs and can help achieve the optimal case result.

How A Hyundai Lemon Law Attorney Helps You Win or Settle Your Claim

A Hyundai defect lawyer gives your lemon law case the attention it deserves. The attorney asks you questions to get plenty of information regarding your claim. This lets the lawyer present a compelling argument to help you get your desired case result.

In many instances, a settlement may be proposed in a lemon law case. If your attorney receives a settlement, they will share it with you. You then have the option to accept, reject, or counter the proposal.

For those unsure about what to do with a lemon law claim settlement, rely on your attorney for guidance. Your attorney can explain what can happen with any decision you make regarding a settlement. If you believe a settlement is short of your expectations, you can reject it and continue to explore other options to resolve your claim.

When to Hire a Hyundai Lemon Law Lawyer in California?

It is in your best interests to get help from a Hyundai lemon law attorney as soon as possible. If you believe your Hyundai is a lemon, a lemon law attorney must immediately look at your claim. The lawyer can assess the validity of your claim and help you move forward with a request for compensation.

As you search for a lemon law attorney, it is a good idea to consider a lawyer’s client testimonials. An attorney with a proven track record likely keeps their clients happy repeatedly. If a lawyer can share client testimonials, you can find out if this lawyer has what it takes to deliver the best possible case result.

Once you start working with your attorney, continue to share any legal concerns or questions. Your lawyer will do everything in their power to ensure you are fully supported as you progress with your lemon law claim. By working in lockstep with your attorney, you can verify that your claim stays on track.
