Why You Need a Ford Lemon Law Attorney

California lemon law claims are complicated, and it is important to note that not every vehicle defect constitutes a lemon. In short, the defect must affect the use, safety, or value of your Ford truck or car. You may also have a valid claim if your vehicle has been out of service for an extended period of time.

In any event, the dealer must be given a reasonable number of attempts to repair the vehicle, which can be as few as two in some cases. For this reason, it is crucial to keep all repair invoices which will serve as valuable evidence in your lemon law claim.

Trust the team at Wirtz Law to handle all the details of your claim, take over all communications with the automaker, dealer, and opposing counsel, and help you achieve a positive outcome. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to a vehicle replacement or refund.

Representing Ford Owners in California Lemon Law Claims

Ford has shifted its focus to trucks and SUVs and curtailed its production of sedans (to only 2 models) to cut costs. Despite the popularity of Ford trucks, the automaker’s vehicles continue to experience serious defects.

If your Ford truck or car has experienced ongoing defects that the dealer cannot repair, our lemon law attorneys will fight for your rights in and out of the courtroom.

While many lemon law claims can be resolved through settlement negotiations, we are always prepared for trial. If we can demonstrate that Ford or the dealer wilfully violated provisions of the California lemon law, you may also be entitled to additional civil penalty damages of up to two times your actual damages. Above all, our aggressive lemon law attorneys fight to win.
