California Lemon Law for Dodge Vehicles
Dodge is an iconic brand that delivers everything from the popular Grand Caravan to high-performance cars such as the Challenger and the Charger. Millions of people rely on their Dodges every day. When consumers purchase or lease a Dodge, they not only expect it to work, but also to work well. Even though Dodge has decades of experience in making cars, our cases confirm that the company has still manufactured lemons in recent years.
Is your Dodge a lemon?
Your Dodge must meet a few requirements first to qualify as a lemon. One of the most important prerequisites is that the vehicle must be covered by a written warranty like those given to new or certified pre-owned vehicles. Another requirement is that the vehicle’s reported issue must substantially affect its safety, value, or functionality to deem the vehicle a lemon. If that is the case, the vehicle must have had multiple repairs performed under warranty by a certified dealership to fix the problem.
Defects in Dodge Vehicles That Can Warrant a Lemon Law Claim
These are just a few of the Dodge defects that may warrant a lemon law claim:
- Defective Total Integrated Power Modules (“TIPM”)
