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.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act provides protections to consumers so they’re not stuck with a defective vehicle after purchase. If you can prove your car or truck is a lemon, you could be entitled to a refund or vehicle replacement at the manufacturer’s expense. At Neale & Fhima, we fight Nissan Motor Company aggressively to enforce the lemon law rights of our clients. California’s lemon law applies to both new and some used cars.
Some popular Nissan models include Altima, Armada, Frontier, Juke, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Quest, Rogue, Sentra, Titan and Versa. If you’ve purchased any of these vehicles that turn out to be defective, the Nissan lemon law could provide a legal remedy.

California’s 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 Nissan warranty is still in force. The lemon law in California stipulates that “nonconformities” must be present to have a successful claim. Nonconformities are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty. Nonconformities must compromise the use, value or safety of the vehicle.
Common defects that affect safety include:
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:
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 successful Nissan lemon law claim. But even if your vehicle does not fall within the above guidelines, you may be entitled to a legal remedy. The Nissan lemon law lawyers at Neale & Fhima have an outstanding success rate in securing vehicle refunds or replacements on behalf of our clients.
You can find out more about California lemon law by reading the following:
The statute of limitations for filing a lemon law claim in California is four (4) years from the date a consumer 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. 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 payment receipts and call an experienced lemon law attorney today.
