Is Your Subaru a Lemon?

A “lemon” refers to a defective vehicle, such as a car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, RV, or other types of vehicles. Whether the issue arises immediately after purchase or later on, the vehicle is considered defective if the problem persists and mechanics cannot fix it. Various mechanical and electrical problems, from malfunctioning radios to excessive oil consumption, can render a vehicle defective. If your Subaru falls into this category, consult our California lemon law attorneys to determine if you have a claim.

Before filing a claim, you must have made a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your new vehicle, although the law does not specify the exact number. Giving the dealership a genuine opportunity to fix the issues is important before taking legal action.

Under the California lemon law, your Subaru must have “nonconformities” covered by the original warranty that significantly impact the vehicle’s safety, use, or value. The defect does not have to pose a direct danger to you; for instance, even the erratic functioning of automatic mirrors can be the basis of a lemon law claim. Furthermore, the defect does not need to be safety related such asradio problems, AC malcuntions or many other types of non-saftey related can form the basis of a lemon law claim.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, you may have a Subaru lemon law case. Talk to our Subaru lemon law attorneys for an informed legal opinion about whether your vehicle qualifies.

How Does a Subaru Lemon Law Buyback Work?

To initiate the process, our attorneys will file a legal claim against the manufacturer on your behalf. We anticipate resistance as auto manufacturers vigorously oppose lemon law claims to minimize financial payouts. However, we are tenacious and skilled in winning these cases. We fearlessly confront the manufacturers’ attorneys and strive for the best possible outcome for our clients.

To succeed in a Subaru lemon law claim, you must demonstrate that the defect significantly impacts the vehicle’s use, value, or safety. Additionally, you need to show that you made “reasonable attempts” to have the defect repaired by a dealership or mechanic.

Keeping evidence of your repair attempts, including receipts, work orders, and used parts from each appointment, is crucial. This documentation supports your claim.

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 the date you knew or should have known the vehicle was a lemon. As a result this allows many people to bring claims 4-8 years after buying their vehicle. Generally, the sooner you file, the better. If you have purchased or leased a lemon, start collecting copies of your repair bills and immediately call a California lemon law attorney. The longer you wait, the more frustrated you will become.

What Are The Remedies You Can Recover In Your Subaru Lemon Law Case?

A successful Subaru lemon law case puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes time to select the form of compensation. Here are the two primary remedies:

Option A: Repurchase 

The manufacturer will take back the vehicle and refund the purchase price (minus prior use value), including payments, down payment, and loan payoff. You will also receive a refund for registration fees and taxes.

Option B: Replacement 

The manufacturer will provide a new, identical, or substantially similar vehicle. They will cover registration and taxes for the new vehicle, but fees and finance charges from the original vehicle are not refunded. Consent from both parties is required.

Additional Option: Cash and Keep

In certain cases, we can negotiate for you to keep the vehicle while receiving a cash payment as compensation for the defect.
