Ford Lemon Law Buyback Program Information

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.

Ford Lemon Law Buyback Program Information

How Do I Start the Ford Buyback Process?

You can initiate a Ford buyback using the following steps:

Take Your Vehicle to a Ford Dealership for Repairs

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.

Document the Repairs

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:

  • Original purchase or lease document
  • Manufacturer’s warranty
  • Vehicle registration
  • Copies of correspondence with the dealer or Ford
  • Vehicle maintenance record

Hire an Experienced Lemon Law Attorney

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.

Does Ford Have a Money Back Guarantee?

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.

"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!!!!
