Does California Lemon Law Cover RVs and Motorhomes?
Yes, California Lemon Law applies to all types of recreational vehicles. For Lemon Law to apply, your vehicle must be covered by a written warranty, such as the one that comes with a new vehicle or a certified pre-owned vehicle. The vehicle must also have a material defect, and it must have been in the shop multiple times while the manufacturer tried to fix the problem.
If you think your RV or motorhome is a lemon, contact our attorneys today. We can review the details of your case for free and explain your options for pursing compensation.
What to Do If Your RV Is a Lemon
If you are dealing with a lemon, take action to protect your rights. These simple steps can help safeguard your rights and build the strongest claim possible:
- Check the warranty. Lemon Law cases are built on your warranty. If your vehicle has a written warranty such as one that comes with a new vehicle or a certified pre-owned vehicle, you may have a claim under California Lemon Law. You may even have a claim if the warranty is expired, as long as the problems started during the warranty period.
- Seek repairs. Under California Lemon Law, manufacturers are allowed a reasonable number of opportunities to make repairs to your vehicle. The number of repair opportunities can vary based on the type of problem. However, manufacturers generally get two or more opportunities to fix the issue. If the manufacturer has not yet had a chance to correct the problem, the vehicle may not yet qualify for Lemon Law.
- Save all paperwork. If you are considering a Lemon Law claim, save all the paperwork related to your vehicle. This includes paperwork such as your registration, purchase documents, warranty, and any other important items related to your vehicle. Also keep any records related to repairs on the vehicle, as well as records of any communication you have had with a dealer or manufacturer about your vehicle’s problems.
- Consult with a California RV and motorhome Lemon Law lawyer. If you decide to take action on a lemon RV or motorhome, our lawyers can help. An attorney from The Barry Law Firm can review your warranty, explain how California Lemon Law may apply, and help you build a claim to demand your money back. Our experienced team can help negotiate a settlement for you and handle everything that your case needs from start to finish.
Our Lemon Law lawyers can also be helpful in cases where a manufacturer refuses to acknowledge that a problem exists with your vehicle. If the manufacturer will not take responsibility for the trouble the vehicle has caused, we can help you fight for the justice you deserve.
