In that case, you may be entitled to compensation under California’s lemon law. Even if your vehicle is not currently under warranty, you may still qualify for compensation if you took your vehicle in for a repair while it was still under warranty.

Does My Infiniti Qualify As a Lemon?
Determining whether you purchased a lemon can be difficult. You can count on the experienced lemon law attorneys at Wirtz Law to review your case and advise as to whether your vehicle meets the requirements for a lemon. If your vehicle has a substantial impairment to its safety, use, or value and Infiniti has not repaired your vehicle after a reasonable number of attempts, your vehicle is likely a lemon.
You will need to show that your vehicle has one or more substantial defects. A defect is substantial when it affects the use of the vehicle by preventing you from driving it in the way that it was intended to be driven. Safety defects are defects that put you as a driver, your passengers, or any other driver in danger. When a vehicle’s value has been diminished by the defect, meaning it no longer has the same value of use to you or it won’t sell for the price it normally would sell for if the defect wasn’t there, the defect is considered substantial. If one or more of the following apply to your situation, you likely have a valid lemon law claim:
- You presented your Infiniti two or more times for repair
- The defects were not repaired after a reasonable number of attempts
- Your defects substantially impaired the use, value or safety of the vehicle
- The defects were covered under the factory warranties
- Your Infiniti has been out of service for 30 days in a row or more due to repairs
What To Do If Your Infiniti Is Defective
To recover under California’s lemon law, you will need to show that a reasonable number of attempts to repair your Infiniti have been made. IYou may only need to show that you’ve taken your vehicle in twice for repairs to be eligible. It’s important that you keep all of your paperwork related to your repair attempts and notes from any work the dealership has done on your Infiniti.
Next, we recommend contacting an attorney as soon as possible. When a dealership realizes that they may have sold you a lemon, they may try to offer to sell you a new vehicle, having you pay the difference. They may try to convince you that they are fulfilling their obligations under the lemon law. However, if this happens, they’re just trying to make another profit off of you. Doing so could result in a significant loss to you.

We will ensure that your rights are protected and that the dealership doesn’t take advantage of you.
