Nissan offers some of the most diverse Japanese car models, and these vehicles are very popular among value-conscious consumers. That’s why drivers feel really frustrated when they purchase a Nissan that turns out to be a lemon. If this sounds like you, don’t despair — a skilled Nissan Lemon Law lawyer may have an answer for you.
Under California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, you are legally entitled to a refund or vehicle replacement, at the manufacturer’s cost, if you have purchased a lemon. At Neale & Fhima, we fight Nissan Motor Company to enforce the lemon law rights of our clients. California’s lemon law applies to both new and used cars, though with used cars you must have a certain type of vehicle warranty to be protected.

What Can a Nissan Lemon Law Attorney Do for Me?
California lemon law, one of the most progressive and consumer-friendly in the nation, stipulates that Nissan must repair your car, SUV or truck as long as the a Nissan warranty is still in force. Nissan must engage in reasonable attempts to repair your automobile. If the problem cannot be remedied within a reasonable number of visits to a Nissan dealership, state law mandates that the vehicle shall be repurchased or replaced by Nissan.
To prevail in a Nissan Lemon Law claim, you will have to show that you made “reasonable attempts” to repair the problem; therefore, you will want to keep all receipts, work orders and used parts from each one of your repair appointments. State law does not define “reasonable attempts.” Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind when determining whether your vehicle qualifies for a lemon law remedy:
- The vehicle had a minimum of two repairs attempted for a defect that could lead to death or serious injury. Defects also must impair the value of the auto’s safety, use or value.
- You brought the vehicle to the dealership at least four times to remedy the exact same flaw.
- The vehicle has been at a Nissan dealership for repairs of the same defect for at least 30 days since you acquired it.
If your vehicle falls into any of those guidelines and is 18 months old or less and has under 18,000 miles on the odometer, then you may have a lemon. But even if your vehicle does not fall within the above guidelines, you may still have lemon! A Nissan Lemon Law lawyer at Neale & Fhima can help you determine if your vehicle is a lemon.

What About Nissan Lemon Law and Used Cars?
Nissan is the second-largest Japanese automaker behind Toyota, and Nissan has subsidiaries and divisions in 17 countries. In 2010, Nissan introduced the Nissan LEAF – the first affordable, mass-produced car that runs exclusively on electricity. The Leaf is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world. In 1989, the company created Infiniti, its luxury car division. Infiniti competes with other luxury brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
