we are going for a brand new car using the lemon law. Refund of all payments made to date, tax, license, and then subaru pays off remainder of car.
In order to replace your car under the California Lemon Law, you must satisfy several conditions:
1) The vehicle must be used...for personal, family or household purposes.
2) The vehicle must have problems covered by warranty.
3) The warranter must be unable to repair the vehicle's warranty problem after a number of repair attempts. Also revelent to determining whether there has been a reasonable number of repair attempts is the number of days the vehicle has been out of service.
4) The vehicle must have a problem.....that substantially impairs the vehicle's use, value or safety. The lemon law, generally, will not apply to vehicles with trivial or minor defects.
Points 1) and 2), no worries. Points 3) and 4) may present more of a problem. Not trying to light your fuse by saying your problem is trivial - obviously to you it isn't - but this may not be quite so "slam friggen dunk" as your lawyer says it is.
Why not follow SobeWRX's very sensible advice and take it to another dealer first ?
