Get the best legal representation at no cost to you.
West Coast Lemons is a small firm where you’ll get to work directly with the managing attorney. Compare that to other firms where you’ll never speak to the name partner and your case will be passed off to a less experienced associate or paralegal. Our results also speak for themselves with over 4 million dollars negotiated by our managing attorney alone.
We offer free consultations and if we take on your case, you pay nothing out of pocket for attorney’s fees and costs; the manufacturer of your defective vehicle will pay them for you. Unlike many other lemon law firms, we do not charge our clients a contingency fee. Our goal is to make you whole again, not take your money. That’s how you know we’re truly on your side. When you get paid, we get paid.
With years of experience in this industry, 100% of my practice is dedicated to the lemon law. By choosing West Coast Lemons you’ll have an attorney on your side that knows how these manufacturers and their attorneys work, and most importantly will fight for you!
The California lemon law, also known as The Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, is the law the protects consumers when they purchase a vehicle or product that the manufacturer is unable to repair under warranty.
There are three main ways to qualify for the lemon law:
There’s no one size fits all magic number to answer this question, but the law does provide some basic guidelines within the first 18 months or 18,000 miles after purchase of a new car or truck:
Even if none of those guidelines sound like your situation yet, speaking with an experienced lemon law attorney can point you in the right direction and make sure that if you did end up with a lemon, you’ll be able to prove it!
Generally, if you have a lemon you are entitled to either a repurchase (also called a buyback) or a replacement. Another settlement option is a cash and keep where you are paid some money but keep the loan/lease on the vehicle.
An average RV case has around 3-4 separate repair visits, 3-4 months at the dealership for repairs, and repeat issues involving major components like slide outs, water leaks, black tank issues, and structural problems. However, there’s no magic number of repair visits or days out of service so take advantage of a free consultation with an RV lemon law specialist at West Coast Lemons to see if you have a lemon.
A repurchase, also known as a buyback, consists of a return of your down payment, payments, out of pocket repair costs, towing, rental costs, and loan payoff, less the mileage offset, and less any aftermarket additions.
Luckily the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (aka the lemon law) is consumer protection based which means the manufacturer pays for your attorney’s fees and costs if you have a valid lemon law claim. You pay nothing out of pocket for attorney’s fees and costs. As an added bonus to working with our firm, we do not charge our clients a contingency fee. Our goal is to make you whole again, not take your money.
Unfortunately this is becoming more and more normal but just because it’s normal doesn’t mean it’s right. Manufacturers through their authorized repair facilities (your dealer) have to perform repairs within a reasonable time. Dealer delays in getting your RV in for repairs can be devastating, especially when your total warranty is only one year long. If this is happening to you, make sure to schedule your free consultation today to see what you can do about it!
If the manufacturer offers to extend your warranty without making you sign anything, great. However, what manufacturers have been doing is offering a warranty extension in exchange for a waiver of your rights (this will be buried in a lot of legal mumbo jumbo). Do not sign anything without consulting with a lemon law attorney first. Chances are you already have a case, and the manufacturer is trying to trick you into giving up your rights over something you’re already entitled to because the law already says you’re entitled to a warranty extension for any days your car was at the dealer for warranty repairs!
