Orange County Used Car Lemons

Get Legal Help for Your Lemon Law Claim in Orange County

Used vehicles can also qualify for lemon law protection. This includes:

  • Certified Pre-Owned vehicles
  • Vehicles sold with a dealership warranty, such as CarMax or Carvana
  • Other used vehicles may apply under certain conditions

Purchasing a used car can be a major financial decision. Buying a lemon can be an incredibly frustrating and expensive experience, especially after you have put so much effort and expense trying to buy the right used vehicle. When someone buys a used vehicle, they do so with the reasonable expectation that they will get reliable transportation and a good deal on their purchase. But when the vehicle that they purchase turns out to be a lemon, problems start to pile up – from mechanical issues such as brake failure or transmission failure, to costly repairs that just keep coming.

The emotional toll of buying a lemon can also be quite high. If you’ve been in this situation, you likely feel frustrated, even deceived. After all, you were understandably hoping for an affordable and dependable vehicle. It can feel like there is no recourse and your hard-earned money may have been wasted on something that does not work as intended. However, it’s important to realize that you may have protections under California’s Lemon Law.

At O’Connor Law Group, we understand the financial and emotional strain that buying a lemon can cause. We are here to help you recover your losses by taking action against dealerships or manufacturers who sold you a defective used car. We can help you understand if your car is eligible under the law, and we will work hard to make sure that you get reimbursement for your purchase, as well as repairs, replacement costs, and many other expenses.

When Does a Used Car Qualify Under California's Lemon Law

California’s Lemon Law protects consumers from being taken advantage of when purchasing a used car. To qualify, the vehicle must be covered under warranty. This can be a manufacturer's warranty, a dealer's warranty, or even an implied warranty that constitutes an unwritten promise that the car will function as it was intended. It must have been presented for repair more than one time under warranty.

At O'Connor Law Group, we can help you determine whether your used car qualifies under the lemon law and help you seek compensation for your losses.

  • Can My Case Be Resolved Without Having to go Through Formal Court Proceedings?
    In some cases, yes. The manufacturers have no incentive to engage in costly litigation for a case they believe they will lose. As such, some of our cases are resolved without a lawsuit.
  • What Fees Will I Have to Pay to Hire O’Connor Law Group, P.C.?

    We do not charge our clients any up-front fees. The California Lemon Law includes an attorney’s fees provision which allows us to collect our fees and court costs from the automobile manufacturer at the successful resolution of the claim.

    Pursuing your California lemon law claim, therefore, is economically feasible, even if you weren’t in a position to hire an attorney. Moreover, our contingency fees would not be due until we recover settlement proceeds.
