Honda Lemon Law Buyback Attorneys

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

California’s Lemon Law covers Honda vehicles, 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 Honda 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 HONDA 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 Honda 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 Honda 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 Honda does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected.

Even if your Honda 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 Honda

Honda is a Japanese vehicle manufacturer based out of Tokyo. Honda also owns the luxury vehicle brand Acura. Honda has been a worldwide leader in car manufacturing since they produced their first car in 1963, and they have been the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer since 1959.

Honda is a global company with most of its sales in Asia and North America. Honda currently employs over 219,000 people worldwide. They currently produce around 18 different car models. The most popular models include the Civic, the CR-V, and the Accord. Honda is currently the seventh-largest car manufacturer in the world.

Common Honda Vehicle Defects

Even though Honda has been manufacturing cars for over 60 years, there is the possibility of defects. Manufacturing mistakes or design issues can cause a Honda lemon car to end up in someone’s possession. There are numerous possible defects that could cause a Honda car to be a lemon.

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

  • Defective airbags
  • Power window switch overheats
  • Deformed ignition
  • Power steering hose issues
  • Automatic transmission problems
  • Sudden loss of power
Honda is known to produce vehicles with high safety ratings, but they have still had to issue numerous recalls over the years for safety-related and other reasons. Some of the recent recalls Honda has had to issue for some of their vehicles include:
  • Faulty control panel that could lead to accidents
  • Faulty sliding doors that could open while in motion
  • Faulty fuel pumps could cause loss of control
  • Airbag inflators could explode

Honda is currently recalling more than 628,000 vehicles in the U.S. to replace fuel pumps that can fail, causing the engines to stall.

The recall covers much of the Honda and Acura model lineup from the 2018 to 2020 model years including the CR-V small SUV, the company’s top-selling U.S. vehicle.
