Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Litigation in Orange County
Applying Lemon Law to Used Vehicles Throughout California
A certified used car usually has a warranty from both the seller and the manufacturer, but it is rarely any different than a run-of-the-mill used car. Nevertheless, the dealer will check some 100 or more “points” on a factory checklist and then pay the manufacturer upwards of $1,500 for the right to put the car into their program. They will then pass that charge (and more) onto you, the consumer.
Essentially, this is just a marketing scheme, allowing manufacturers and dealers to make you feel like the car is a reliable vehicle at a great price. In reality, they’ve simply added a service contract (often called an extended warranty) and charged you more than the vehicle is worth.
