California’s Lemon Law for Hyundai Vehicles

Consumers who have leased or purchased Hyundais under warranty are entitled to relief. There are two different types of relief available through California’s lemon law. First, the consumer can require Hyundai to replace their defective vehicle with a new vehicle. The consumer can also require Hyundai to buy back their defective vehicle. California lemon law covers all motor vehicles, including all of the following Hyundai models:

Common Defects in Hyundai

Hyundai manufactures a wide range of vehicles that experience many different problems. Engine failure is one of the most common problems in Hyundai. Symptoms of engine failure include the check engine light turning on, a lack of acceleration, a loss of power, and a vehicle not starting. Transmission failure is another dangerous defect in Hyundais. When a transmission fails, you may experience a burning smell, whining and clunking, jerking or lunging, or leaking fluid.

Brake failure is one of the most dangerous defects in Hyundais. Dangerous and deadly accidents can occur when the brake system doesn’t work correctly. Clutch failure and power steering failure are also common causes of lemon law claims. If you’ve experienced any of these problems, we recommend discussing your case with an attorney.

Is Your Hyundai Defective?

To benefit from California’s lemon law, you will need to show that your Hyundai is a lemon. A lemon is a vehicle that has a substantial defect that hasn’t been repaired despite a reasonable number of repair attempts. There is no exact number as to what constitutes a “reasonable” number of repair attempts. Two visits to the repair shop may be enough.  

Additionally, you will need to show that your Hyundai was repaired under warranty or that you took it in for a repair while it was still under warranty. New vehicle warranties, as well as certified pre-owned (CPO) warranties, are sufficient. If a repair took more than 30 days to complete, you may also have a lemon.

What To Do If Your Hyundai Is a Lemon

If you suspect that your Hyundai is a lemon, knowing what steps to take next can help you with your claim under California’s lemon law. First, you will need to give Hyundai a reasonable number of attempts to repair your vehicle. This can be as few as two times.  Ensure you keep all documentation and keep a log of all of the repairs you’ve undergone at the dealership. If the dealership cannot fix the problem or problems after a reasonable number of attempts to repair your vehicle, it’s time to discuss your case with an attorney.

Vehicle manufacturers like Hyundai will try to redefine what qualifies as a lemon. Don’t try to fight a significant auto manufacturer like Hyundai by yourself. In many cases, as few as repair opportunities at the dealership are enough to qualify your Hyundai as a lemon. Make sure you don’t rely on Hyundai’s evaluation of your repair history. Instead, contact the experienced lemon law attorneys at Wirtz Law today. We have extensive experience dealing with auto manufacturers. We know how to handle all of their tactics to deny replacing your vehicle or refunding you.
