California lemon law requires automakers to replace a defective vehicle or refund its buying price if the manufacturer or its dealer can fix it after a ‘’reasonable number’’ of repair attempts.
A Ford lemon law buyback applies when the automaker buys back the vehicle due to manufacturer defects. Once a manufacturer buys back a car, they subsequently put the tag ‘’lemon law buyback’’ on its title.
Suppose you acquired the vehicle through financing. In that case, a lemon law buyback reimburses the down payment, all the monthly payments, and the recent year’s registration expenses.
If you’re stuck with a defective Ford, consider speaking to a trusted California lemon law attorney for legal support as you pursue a lemon law buyback.
You can initiate a Ford buyback using the following steps:
If your vehicle develops a defect, you must take it to a representative of Ford to protect your consumer rights under California lemon law. If you perform the repairs without professional help or from a local repair shop, you could void the warranty and lemon law protection.
More importantly, you should give the dealership a ‘’reasonable number’’ of repair attempts to fix the defect.
Each time you visit a dealership for repairs, ensure they adequately capture the repair defect. If you take the vehicle to the dealership a few times, ensure they capture it as a repeat problem.
Request the dealership to give you a repair order and repair invoice, which provides evidence of repair attempts made by the manufacturer.
In addition, you require the following documents to file a successful Ford lemon buyback claim:
It helps to discuss your case with an experienced attorney for legal advice and strategy on how to solve the claim. Lemon law matters are complex, highlighting the need for an attorney who can protect your interest in the buyback process.
A lemon law attorney will also give you peace of mind and enhance your chances of a positive outcome.
Ford lemon buyback doesn’t provide a money-back guarantee. Even so, you can obtain a refund of your buying price if you initiate a lemon law buyback claim that complies with California lemon laws.
For instance, you may be entitled to Ford lemon law buyback if your vehicle develops a defect covered by warranty within 18,000 miles or 18 months, whichever comes first.
If you own a defective Ford model, you can’t rely on it to run your business or personal errands. It can stall without notice, causing you to incur unexpected expenses, including accommodation charges, car rental, or towing fees.
Your case deserves representation from an experienced attorney to enhance your chances of a fair outcome.
