The Chrysler 300 Fuel Pump Reset: How It May Tie in with California’s Lemon Law

Lemon laws are meant to pacify customers who experience ongoing problems with their autos. This certainly may apply to the Chrysler 300 and its need for fuel pump resets or replacements. Moreover, some of the cars have had a laundry list of problems that regularly need fixing. If you bought one of these vehicles, you might have a lemon. You should speak with a lemon law attorney immediately.

How to Know If You Have a Fuel Pump Problem

You know you have a fuel pump problem if you experience the following:

  • Your engine backfires or sputters
  • You experience some hesitation before putting the car into gear
  • The engine chokes, or you have trouble getting the car up to speed
  • The engine overheats
  • Your check engine light flashes on regularly

The fuel pump, as the name suggests, pumps diesel or gas into the car’s combustion chamber. While it should last a long time, it still can fail, especially if your Chrysler 300 has all the characteristics of a bona fide “lemon.”

 If you have tried to fix the problem repeatedly, you need to speak to a lemon law attorney, as you may need to replace the defective vehicle or get your money back.

When your car grumbles continually, it can certainly get frustrating. After all, it gets to be a hassle to keep making the same repair or fixing a host of ongoing problems.

Lemon Repairs for the Chrysler 300

Some of the repairs for the Chrysler 300 (2017 or newer) may include:

  • A reset or replacement of the fuel pump
  • An electrical system upgrade
  • Replacement of the disc brakes
  • Correcting problems with backfiring and misfiring
  • Solving starting problems

Problems with starting the car can result from an issue with the fuel pump.

What Is a Lemon Law?

To understand how you can receive compensation for a poorly manufactured car, you first need to define lemon laws. This type of legislation varies by state, and usually covers vehicle purchases or leases. The consumer normally has a limited time frame to report their purchase as a “lemon” to receive monetary compensation or a replacement vehicle.

In California, the lemon law is strict and holds manufacturers of new cars (2017 or newer) accountable. It does not cover any car you buy or lease that is pre-owned. 

However, if you bought a new car under a manufacturer’s warranty, you may be able to exert your lemon law rights if you’ve been experiencing ongoing repair problems and difficulties. 

Under the legislation, the dealer may have to buy back your vehicle if you show it is a lemon. Also, you can receive a refund, based on the original purchase price minus a usage charge based on the odometer mileage – from the first attempt at a repair. 

You may also ask for a replacement vehicle for the defective car if you can resolve the issue with the manufacturer. As a California car owner or lessee, you have the right to pursue your lemon law rights if you’ve repeatedly had to repair your car for warranty-covered malfunctions, recalls, or defects over a short span of time.

Why You Need to Have an Attorney on Your Side

In California, the refund you receive is based, again, on the original purchase price, not the car’s current value. By contacting an attorney, you’re assured that you’ll receive the best in consumer protection and representation. 

Dealers normally do not expect a consumer to contact an attorney. That’s because many consumers do not know they don’t have to pay the attorney from what they receive from their settlement.

Instead, the attorney itemizes their fees and expenses and submits the amount to the manufacturer for payment – above the award for the claimed amount. No money is taken from your own award unless you agree to it beforehand.

    "Pleased with the Service"

    Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.

    "Beyond Satisfied"

    I am beyond satisfied. After being told that I did not have a case by other attorneys, I was referred to Ms. Campbell and I am so glad I called her. During the initial consultation, Ms. Campbell was very thorough and answered all of my concerns. She assured me that this was not an overnight fix, however, it took less than three (3) months to resolve. Ms. Campbell was available every step of the way. I rarely called or emailed her because she always kept me in the loop. Every case is different but I am glad mine was quick and painless. I would recommend LemonLaw123 to anyone without any reservations. I could not have asked for better representation. Thank you!!!!
