Is Your Isuzu a Lemon?

A “lemon” refers to a vehicle, including cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, RVs, etc., with a defect. This issue may have arisen immediately after purchase or much later, and despite attempts to fix it, mechanics cannot resolve it. To pursue an Isuzu lemon law claim in California, you must have made a “reasonable number of attempts” to get your vehicle fixed before taking legal action. While the law doesn’t specify the exact number of reasonable repair attempts, giving the dealership a sincere chance to fix it is a prerequisite.

According to California’s lemon law, your Isuzu must have “nonconformities,” meaning any defect covered by Honda’s original warranty that significantly impairs the vehicle’s safety, use, or value. It’s not necessary for the defect to directly endanger you. For instance, if the car’s automatic mirrors work unpredictably, this alone could form the basis for a lemon law claim. Or if the radio malfunctions, this too can be a proper basis for a lemon law claim.

How Does Isuzu Lemon Law Buyback Work?

The process starts by filing a legal claim against the manufacturer. Our attorneys can do this for you. We expect resistance because auto manufacturers work hard to defeat lemon law claims and reduce financial payouts. But we are aggressive and know how to win. We are not intimidated by the manufacturers’ attorneys and are determined to secure the best possible outcome on behalf of our clients. To prevail in an Isuzu lemon law claim, you will have to:

  • show that the defect compromises the use, value, or safety of your vehicle
  • make “reasonable attempts” to have a dealership or mechanic repair the defect.

That’s why it’s important that you have proof that you attempted to have the vehicle fixed — keep all receipts, work orders, and used parts from each one of your repair appointments.

Is There a Time Limit on Filing a California Lemon Law Claim?

Yes. The statute of limitations under California’s lemon law is four years from thdate you knew or should have known that the vehicle was a lemon. Generally, the sooner you file, the better. If you have purchased or leased a lemon, start collecting copies of your repair bills and call a California lemon law attorney right away. The longer you wait, the more frustrated you will become.
