When you get behind the wheel of your vehicle, you expect it to get you where you need to go safely, and defects of any kind can prove exceptionally dangerous. When the defect affects the vehicle’s brakes – and your ability to come to a safe stop – it can lead to terrifying accidents, and the Chrysler Town & Country is a prime example.
If you’ve been affected by a defective vehicle of any kind, don’t wait to reach out to an experienced California lemon law attorney today.
Chrysler has had a slew of issues with recalls in recent years, and they have a reputation for failing to respond in as speedy and robust a manner as owners would prefer. The car manufacturer is recalling model year 2008 and 2009 Town & Country vehicles due to the following concerns:
The rear brakes may not be properly routed or secured.
If this is the case, the brake lines can rub up against the vehicle and leak brake fluid as a result – significantly decreasing the minivan’s ability to come to a safe stop.
A vehicle’s brakes are pivotal to its safety, and this recall highlights exactly how dangerous manufacturing defects can be. When you need to stop, it’s critical that you have responsive brakes that are in excellent working order, and if you’re driving a 2008 or 2009 Chrysler Town & Country, you may not.
There are state and federal lemon laws in place that are intended to protect consumers from the risk and expense of purchasing or leasing vehicles that are defective to begin with. If the manufacturer of your vehicle is unable to adequately repair it within a reasonable number of attempts, it must either return the amount you paid to you or must replace the defective vehicle with a comparable – but safe – substitute. If the car you’re driving ends up being a lemon, you have important consumer rights that are worth protecting.
In California, there are lemon laws that protect consumers who purchase used cars when the following apply:
When these are all true, the dealer or manufacturer is responsible for purchasing the used vehicle back from you. If your car, however, has been recalled – such as Chrysler’s Town & Country – the manufacturer is responsible for fixing the specified defect in accordance with the recall and may be responsible for reimbursing you for any money you spent on attempting to repair the defect on your own.
