California’s Lemon Law for Kia Vehicles
Kia has solidified itself as one of the most well-priced vehicles on the road. Many California consumers purchase Kias because of their reliability and affordability, offering a variety of vehicles. Some owners are disappointed to learn that they purchased a lemon and have to deal with the stressful and time-consuming process of getting their Kia repaired. A lemon is a faulty vehicle with defects that affect its use, safety, or value.
Thankfully, California has one of the most aggressive pro-consumer lemon laws in the country. If you’ve leased or purchased a defective Kia that has required several repair attempts, your Kia may qualify as a lemon. California lemon law protects all types of vehicles and models, including all following Kia models.
Does my Kia Qualify as a Lemon?
A vehicle is considered a lemon in California when it has a substantial defect. A substantial defect affects a vehicle’s use, safety, or value. To file a claim under California’s lemon law, you will need to show that you have given the Kia dealership a reasonable number of attempts to repair your Kia. Two visits to the repair shop are typically enough to constitute a “reasonable number of repairs.”
You do not have to still own or lease a Kia to seek compensation under the lemon law. Additionally, you do not have to have purchased a new Kia. Customers who purchase a certified pre-owned (CPO) Kia with a warranty have a right to seek compensation under the lemon law. Even if your Kia’s warranty has expired, you still may be protected under the law. You will need to show that you visited a repair facility while your Kia was still under warranty. If you suspect that your Kia is a lemon, the best thing you can do is consult with an experienced lemon law attorney who can advise you as to whether you are eligible for compensation.
