California’s Lemon Law for Lincolns
California lemon law is expansive and protects anyone who purchases or leases any type of vehicle in California. California’s lemon law applies to all car makes and models sold in California, including the following Lincoln models:
- Lincoln Aviator
- Lincoln Continental
- Lincoln Corsair
- Lincoln MKC
- Lincoln MKS
- Lincoln MKT
- Lincoln MKX
- Lincoln MKZ
- Lincoln Mark LT
- Lincoln Navigator
- Lincoln Town Car
When a vehicle qualifies as a lemon, the dealership will be required to buy back the defective vehicle or replace the vehicle. If the dealership is offering to buy back your vehicle, it’s essential that you have an attorney involved in the process to ensure that you are getting the total amount of compensation you are entitled to from Lincoln.
Does My Lincoln Qualify As a Lemon?
To prove that your Lincoln is a lemon, you’ll need to show that it has a substantial defect that hasn’t been repaired after a reasonable number of attempts to get it fixed. Alternatively, you will need to show that your vehicle has been at the dealership for a long time — more than 30 days. A substantial defect is any defect that negatively affects the vehicle’s use, value, and/or safety. A substantial defect that affects your Lincoln’s use is a defect that prevents you from driving the vehicle as it was intended to be driven. Lincoln’s are luxury vehicles, and if you cannot enjoy the Lincoln as a luxury vehicle, your Lincoln is probably a lemon. Not being able to use your Lincoln as you want is an impairment to your value.
Also, when a defect means that your Lincoln won’t sell for the price it would typically sell for if it wasn’t effective, your Lincoln is substantially defective, and you may be entitled to damages. Finally, if one or more safety defects put you as a driver, your passengers, or other drivers on the road in danger of injury or death, your Lincoln is probably a lemon. If you are not sure whether your Lincoln is a lemon, we recommend scheduling a free case evaluation at Wirtz Law. We will be able to tell you whether or not you qualify for compensation under California’s lemon law.

What If the Dealership Is Offering Me a New Vehicle?
The Ford dealership that sold you the Lincoln and has attempted to repair your vehicle may offer to replace your vehicle with a new car. The dealership may make you think that you will receive the total amount of compensation available under California’s lemon law. On the contrary, many dealerships will just try to profit from you, resulting in a significant financial loss for you.
Before you accept any agreement from the dealership to buy your vehicle back or replace your vehicle, we recommend discussing your case with an experienced attorney. One of the lemon law attorneys at Wirtz Law will review your case and ensure that you weren’t being taken advantage of. We will pursue all of the compensation available, and we frequently obtain additional damages for our clients on top of their actual damages.
I Think I My Lincoln is Defective. What Do I Do Now?
If you think that your Lincoln is a lemon, you will need to give the automaker a reasonable number of attempts to repair your Lincoln. In some cases, you will only need to provide them with two repair attempts. If the problem continues, you may qualify for a buyback or replacement of your vehicle.
We recommend keeping a record of all of your repair attempts, and communication with the dealership, along with any documents related to your purchasing or lease agreement for the Lincoln. Next, we recommend contacting an attorney who can begin advising you and pursuing the compensation you deserve.
