Porsches are among the most popular high-performance sports cars on the market. But manufacturing mistakes are possible with any Porsche vehicle. A Porsche that cannot be repaired is an expensive headache.
If you are among the California Porsche owners who have taken their vehicles to the shop repeatedly for substantial defects, we understand that it’s extremely frustrating. You should look into California’s lemon law. If your Porsche is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, California law says you may be entitled to a lemon law buyback or a replacement vehicle.
When you cannot get satisfaction from the Porsche dealership or mechanic working on your vehicle, The Barry Law Firm in Los Angeles is here to help you. Our experienced lawyers focus exclusively on California lemon law cases. If your case qualifies, an experienced lemon law attorney can file a complaint demanding Porsche buy your car back or replace it for you. If Porsche does not do the right thing, our firm will be prepared to take your case to court and demand maximum compensation for you.
Contact The Barry Law Firm today if you have a Porsche with a safety issue or defects the dealership has failed to correct. Our lemon law attorneys do not charge you any attorney fees to handle lemon law claims. California law requires the car manufacturer to pay the legal fees in lemon law cases.
What is the California Lemon Law?
California’s lemon law (Civ. Code, § 1793.2 et seq.) protects consumers who purchase a car that comes with the manufacturer’s original warranty. The consumer rights law requires a motor vehicle manufacturer to buy back or replace a vehicle if, after a reasonable number of attempts, repair work cannot resolve a problem that:
- Is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty,
- Substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle, and
- Is not caused by unauthorized or unreasonable use of the vehicle after its sale.
The law requires the vehicle owner to make a reasonable number of attempts to have the vehicle repaired.
Does My Porsche Qualify as a Lemon?
The California lemon law does not define what constitutes a reasonable number of repair attempts. It depends on the specifics of the car repair. Generally speaking, at least two repair attempts are usually required.
Common Porsche Lemon Law Defects
For a vehicle to qualify as a lemon under California law, the unresolved problem must substantially impair the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. Porsche models with the following types of problems may qualify for a lemon law buyback:
- Engine problems
- Transmission problems
- Electrical issues
- Brake problems
- Steering problems
- Air conditioning problems
- Fuel system problems
- Interior problems
- Exterior problems
- Other common defects
What Should I Do If I Think My Porsche Is a Lemon?
