Ford Lemon Law Buyback Attorneys

Sick and tired of spending time at the shop trying to get your new or used Ford repaired? Have you wasted time and money and the car still has the same problem(s)?

California’s Lemon Law covers Fordvehicles and could be the path to either getting your money back or receiving a new vehicle!

What is the Lemon Law?

In 1970, California enacted the Lemon Law to provide drivers with relief from persistent problems with their vehicles.

What does the Lemon Law do? The simple answer: if you purchased or leased a new or used vehicle in California that is under a warranty and has had an ongoing problem or problems that a dealer has unsuccessfully attempted to fix over multiple repair visits, you may qualify for compensation.

The California Lemon Law applies to cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, RVs, motorcycles, some business-owned vehicles, and boats.

It applies to purchased or leased new vehicles. It also pertains to used vehicles that are certified pre-owned and/or still under a manufacturer’s warranty.

Does My Ford Qualify As A Lemon?

There is no single or easy answer. The Lemon Law requires both a substantial defect and either that the vehicle is not repaired after multiple attempts to get it fixed or it has been at the dealership for many days cumulatively.

Substantial defects impair the vehicle’s “use, value, and/or safety.”

  • A defect that affects a vehicle’s use is one that prevents you from driving the vehicle as it was intended to be driven.
  • A vehicle’s value is diminished when the defect means the vehicle won’t sell for the price it normally would bring – if the defect weren’t there.
  • Safety defects are defects that put the driver, passengers, and other drivers in danger.

The problem does not have to be safety related to qualify. If your Ford has been ‘in the shop’ repeatedly and still has the same issue, it may be a lemon.

If a defect involves a safety issue, such as faulty airbags, it may only require two repair attempts. If your Ford has been in ‘the shop’ for more than thirty days, cumulative, regardless of the defect(s), it may also qualify as a lemon.

Some examples of problems in a Ford vehicle that could be considered substantial are problems involving:

  • Brakes
  • Engines
  • Steering
  • Electrical systems
  • Suspension
  • Air conditioning/heating systems
  • Windows
  • Transmissions
  • Doors
  • Back up cameras
  • Water leaks

It is important to remember that your Ford does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected.

Even if your Ford has over 50,000 miles on it, if you took it in for repair while it was still under warranty it could still potentially be considered a lemon.

About Ford

Ford Motor Company is an iconic American Brand. Ford has been a leader in automotive technology for over 120 years – since Henry Ford built his first car in Detroit in 1896.

Ford is a global company who employs over 175,000 people worldwide. They currently produce about 38 different models including commercial and performance vehicles. The most popular models include their F-Series trucks, the Focus, the Escape, the Mustang, and the Explorer. Ford is currently the highest-selling car brand in the United States.

Common Ford Vehicle Defects

Even though Ford has been manufacturing cars for well over 100 years, there is still the possibility that the car that you purchase or lease is a defective vehicle. Manufacturing mistakes or design issues can cause a Ford lemon car to end up in someone’s possession. There are numerous possible defects that could cause a Ford car to be considered a lemon.

Some of the common defects that people have complained about with regard to their Ford vehicles include:

  • Major oil leaks
  • Power steering issues
  • A/C and Ventilation issues
  • Faulty spark plugs
  • Doors coming off
  • Serious engine issues
  • Exhaust leaks
  • Faulty gearshifts

Ford cars are generally known to be reliable with high safety ratings, but they still have had to issue numerous recalls over the years for safety-related and other reasons. Some of the recent recalls Ford has had to issue for some of their vehicles include:

  • Faulty rearview cameras
  • Leaking brake fluid that could result in brake failure
  • Sparks that could lead to fires
  • Takata airbags could explode
  • Improperly secured wiring harness could lead to a potential fire

The most recent Ford recalls are for 2020-2021 Ford F-350 Super Duty vehicles due to a deformed rear axle; and 2020-2021 Lincoln Aviator vehicles because the battery cable wire harnesses were “improperly secured” – over time, the wire could cause a short-circuit, leading to a potential fire.

FAQ

What is Ford lemon law buyback?

In some situations, if your Ford car is a lemon, they will offer to “buy back” your car. It is important to have a Lemon Law attorney involved in this process so that you get the full amount that you are entitled to from Ford. 

What if a Ford dealer is offering to take my car back and give me a new car?

Dealerships often offer to get you out of your lemon car and into a new vehicle. They make you think that they are giving you what is required by the Lemon Law when in fact, they are just trying to make another profit off of you. In most cases, this will result in a significant loss to you. An experienced Lemon Car Lawyer will be able to advise you on the best way to pursue compensation for your Ford lemon.

Can a used car qualify for lemon law?
Many times, used cars are sold still under the original factory warranty from the manufacturer or with a manufacturer’s extended warranty.
