Tesla Lemon Law Buyback Attorneys

Tesla Motors has been known for its high-end, all-electric cars. The Model S and the Model X have been very successful cars, but recently there have been some issues with the Model X. Some customers report that their vehicles are Tesla Model X lemon law cases. Sick and tired of spending time at the shop trying to get your new or used Tesla repaired? Have you wasted time and money, and the car still has the same problem(s)? California’s Lemon Law covers Tesla 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 [RH1] to relieve drivers of persistent vehicle problems. What does the Lemon Law do? The simple answer: if you purchased or leased a new or used vehicle in California that is under 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 Tesla Qualify as A Lemon?

There is no single or easy answer. The Tesla Lemon Law in California requires both a substantial defect and either that the vehicle is not repaired after multiple attempts to get it fixed or it has been cumulatively at the dealership for many days. Substantial defects impair the vehicle’s “use, value, and/or safety.”
A defect that affects a vehicle’s use 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 usually would bring – if the defect weren’t there.
  • Safety defects put the driver, passengers, and other drivers in danger.
The problem does not have to be safety-related to qualify. If your Tesla has repeatedly been ‘in the shop’ 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 Tesla 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 that could be considered substantial involve:
  • Brakes
  • Engines
  • Steering
  • Electrical systems
  • Suspension
  • Air conditioning/heating systems
  • Doors
  • Back up cameras
  • Water leaks
  • Windows
  • Transmissions
It is important to remember that your Tesla does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected. Even if your Tesla has over 50,000 miles on it, if you took it in for repair while it was still under warranty, it could potentially be considered a lemon.

About Tesla

Tesla, Inc. is an American electric vehicle and clean energy company based in Palo Alto, California. In 2020, Tesla had the highest sales in the plug-in and battery-electric passenger car market, capturing 16% of the plug-in market (which includes plug-in hybrids) and 23% of the battery-electric (purely electric) market. Tesla began production of its first car model, the Roadster, in 2009. The Model S sedan followed this in 2012, the Model X SUV in 2015, the higher volume Model 3 sedan in 2017, and the Model Y crossover in 2020. The Model 3 is the world’s all-time best-selling plug-in electric car, with more than 800,000 delivered through December 2020. Tesla’s global vehicle sales were 499,550 units in 2020, a 35.8% increase over the previous year. In 2020, the company surpassed the 1 million mark of electric cars produced.

Common Tesla Vehicle Defects

Although Tesla is well known for being on the cutting edge of technology, there is still a possibility of a defect. Manufacturing mistakes, disruptions in the system, or design issues, can cause a Tesla lemon car to end up being driven off the lot. Numerous possible defects could cause a Tesla to be a lemon. Some of the latest defects that Tesla drivers have experienced with their vehicles include:
  • Blurry backup cameras
  • Rust
  • Cruise control
  • Paint finish issues
  • Door, window, and trunk
  • Total touchscreen failure
  • Getting locked out of the car
  • Shutdowns while driving
