Is Your Alfa Romeo a Lemon?
California lemon law protects consumers who have purchased vehicles with manufacturing or workmanship defects. The law requires auto manufacturers to buy back defective vehicles from consumers. When the automaker hasn’t repaired your vehicle under warranty after multiple attempts, your vehicle may qualify as a lemon. When the auto dealer cannot repair your vehicle after a reasonable number of attempts, it must replace or purchase your vehicle. A reasonable number of attempts can be as few as two attempts, depending on the circumstances.
Not all defects qualify a vehicle as a lemon. For your vehicle to be eligible for a buyback from Alfa Romeo, you will need to show that the defects substantially impaired your vehicle’s use, value, or safety. You will not need to show that your Alfa Romeo has had the same defect multiple times. Even if you’ve brought your vehicle in for repairs for numerous different types of defects, it may still qualify as a lemon.
Common Lemon Law Defects in Alfa Romeos
Several commonly reported issues with Alfa Romeos in the United States have been reported. Alfa Romeo vehicles have been known to exhibit significant electrical problems. The manufacturer has issued a technical service bulletin with the body control module that requires an update to ensure the remote start feature continues working.
Owners have reported issues with faulty check engine and engine overheating messages and chattering noises while steering. Issues with the front suspension often cause chattering noises. Other owners have reported brake issues involving the brake pad wear sensors becoming disconnected. Other common Alfa Romeo defects include the following:
- Defective sensors
- Suspension problems
- Turbo issues
- Engine issues
- Powertrain problems
- Problems with the coolant hose retainer
- Air conditioning defects
- Problems with the stop/start system
- Power steering loss
Transmission Slippage or Jerking
There have been complaints about transmission slippage. Many customers have experienced bumping or jerking after a stop or start event. To address this, Alfa Romeo issued a service bulletin to address this issue and recommended reprogramming the transmission control module. In some cases, reprogramming was not effective.
Some customers have reported that when they take their vehicle in to be repaired, the dealership will state that there is no problem found or they can’t duplicate customer concerns. Transmission jerking and slippage are serious safety issues. If you have been experiencing transmission slippage or jerking and have not repaired your Alfa Romeo successfully, contact the skilled lemon law attorneys at Wirtz Law as soon as possible to discuss your legal options under the California lemon law.
How Much Is My Alfa Romeo Lemon Law Claim Worth?
You may wonder whether pursuing a lemon law claim is worth it. If your Alfa Romeo has needed multiple visits to the repair shop or is unsafe, discussing your case with an attorney is worth your time. If your Alfa Romeo qualifies as a lemon, Alfa Romeo must replace your defective vehicle with a brand new vehicle or purchase your vehicle back from you based on what you paid and still owe. Additionally, the manufacturer must reimburse you for any incidental and consequential costs incurred while the dealer was attempting to repair your vehicle.
If the manufacturer willfully violated California’s lemon law, they may be required to pay you an additional civil penalty up to twice the amount of your actual damages. They will also be required to pay for your attorneys’ fees and costs, meaning that you will not pay anything until Wirtz Law wins your lemon law claim.
