What Should I Do if I Think My Lincoln Is Defective?

If you suspect your Lincoln vehicle has significant defects, giving the manufacturer a fair opportunity to address and rectify the issues is crucial. In certain instances, providing them with two repair attempts may suffice. Should the problem persist, you may be eligible for a buyback or a replacement.

It is advisable to maintain a detailed record of all repair efforts and any correspondence with the dealership and preserve any pertinent documents related to your Lincoln purchase or lease agreement. Following this, seeking legal counsel is recommended to guide you in seeking rightful compensation.

Steps to Take If You Suspect You Have a Lemon

Here are the steps to take if you suspect you have a lemon vehicle:

  • Keep Detailed Records: Keep a comprehensive record of all interactions related to your vehicle, including purchase or lease documents, repair invoices, and correspondence with the manufacturer or dealership.
  • Review Your Warranty: Familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions of your vehicle’s warranty. This will help you understand your rights and the manufacturer’s obligations.
  • Report the issue to the Dealer: When you notice a recurring problem with your vehicle, report it to the authorized dealership or repair center. Make sure they document the issue and their attempted repairs.
  • Keep a Repair Log: Create a detailed log of each dealership or repair facility visit. Include dates, descriptions of the problems, and the repairs attempted.
  • Request a Repair History Report: Request a repair history report from the dealership. This document will provide an official record of the repairs attempted on your vehicle.
  • Consult with an Attorney: If your efforts to resolve the issue are unsuccessful, consider consulting with an experienced lemon law attorney. We can evaluate your case and guide you through the legal process.

What to Look for When Considering a Lincoln Lemon Law Case

Our team of lemon law professionals has a proven track record of success in handling Lincoln vehicle models. We’ve encountered numerous commonly reported defects, including, but not limited to:

  • Persistent mechanical problems: If a vehicle faces recurring mechanical issues that compromise its safety, functionality, or value, it may qualify as a lemon.
  • Safety-related defects: Vehicles with safety-related flaws that pose a risk to the driver, passengers, or others on the road can be considered lemon law cases. Examples include faulty brakes, steering, engines, transmissions, drivetrains, or airbags.
  • Noncompliance with the manufacturer’s warranty: If a vehicle fails to meet the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty and the problems persist despite repair attempts, it could meet the criteria for a lemon.
  • Serious defects impacting value or function: Laws that substantially reduce the value or functionality of the vehicle may serve as grounds for a lemon law case. This could include recurrent transmission failures, engine problems, or electrical malfunctions, including malfunction with the battery, navigations system or radio.
  • Excessive repair attempts: lemon laws generally require the vehicle owner to give the manufacturer or authorized dealer reasonable opportunities to rectify the issue. If the vehicle continues to experience problems after multiple repair attempts, it may be deemed a lemon. The consumer does not need to give the manufacturer excessive repair attempts.
  • Prolonged repair duration: If the vehicle spends an extended period in the repair shop and the issues remain unresolved, it could qualify as a lemon law case. Lengthy repair times can cause significant inconvenience and financial strain for the owner.
  • Manufacturer’s inability to effect repairs: If the manufacturer or authorized dealer cannot address the recurring issues with the vehicle, it may meet the criteria for a lemon law case. The manufacturer should be afforded only a reasonable opportunity to rectify the defects.

Experiencing repeated repairs for these issues can significantly impact your vehicle’s safety, use, and value. If you find yourself in this situation, it is crucial to consult our lemon law experts in California. Our team handles Lincoln lemon law cases and can provide you with the guidance and representation you need.

What Does “Reasonable Number of Repair Attempts” Mean?

A “reasonable number of repair attempts” refers to the number of times a manufacturer or their authorized repair facility has made to fix a defect or nonconformity in a vehicle. If a defect substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle and it cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts, the vehicle may be considered a “lemon” under the law.

The specific number of repair attempts that constitutes a “reasonable number” can vary depending on the nature and severity of the defect. Generally, the law provides a presumption that a manufacturer has had a reasonable number of attempts to repair a defect if:

  • The vehicle has been subject to repair for the same issue three to four or more for non-safety related defects.
  • The defect is likely to cause death or serious injury if the vehicle is driven and the manufacturer or their authorized repair facility has made at least two attempt to repair it.

It’s important to note that exceptions and additional criteria may apply in specific situations.  Even if your facts do not fit the criteria above, does not mean that you do not have claim, you must consult with an attorney.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if the dealership offers me a new vehicle?

The Ford dealership, which sold you the Lincoln and attempted to address the issues with your vehicle, might propose replacing it with a new one. They may lead you to believe you’ll receive full compensation under California’s lemon law. However, many dealerships may seek to maximize their gains, leaving you with a substantial financial setback, such as rolling in negative equity into your new loan.

Before agreeing to any offer from the dealership to repurchase or replace your vehicle, it’s advisable to consult with a seasoned attorney. At Neale & Fhima, our lemon law attorneys will carefully assess your case to ensure you’re not exploited. We’ll diligently pursue all available compensation, often securing additional damages for our clients and their losses.

What remedies are available to consumers under the Lincoln lemon law?

If a vehicle qualifies as a lemon, the consumer is generally entitled to a refund of the purchase or lease price (which includes down payment, payments, interest, taxes, collateral fees, and more) or a replacement vehicle of comparable value. Additionally, the manufacturer may be responsible for other costs, such incidental and consequential damages and expenses.

Is there a deadline for filing a lemon law claim in California?

Yes, there is a deadline. A consumer must file a lemon law claim within four years of the vehicle’s delivery date or within four years of when the consumer knew or should have known that the vehicle was a lemon.

Do I need a lawyer to pursue a lemon law claim in California?

While you have the right to represent yourself, consulting with a lemon law attorney is advisable. We can help guide you through the process, protect your rights, and help you obtain the best possible result.
