TOYOTA Lemon Law Buyback Attorneys

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

California’s Lemon Law covers Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected.

Even if your Toyota 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 Toyota

Toyota Motor Corporation was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937. Today it is a multinational automotive manufacturer headquartered in the city of Toyota in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture. Toyota is one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world, producing about 10 million vehicles per year.

Lexus is Toyota’s luxury brand.

Common Toyota Vehicle Defects

Even though Toyota has been manufacturing cars for over 80 years, there is the possibility of defects. Manufacturing mistakes or design issues can cause a Toyota lemon car to end up in someone’s possession. There are numerous possible defects that could cause a Toyota car to be a lemon.

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

  • Defective airbags
  • Power window switch overheats
  • Deformed ignition
  • Power steering hose issues
  • Automatic transmission problems
  • Sudden loss of power

Toyota 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.

Toyota’s most recent recall is for some Lexus and Toyota vehicles produced between July 2017 through December 2019 because of fuel pump issues. The fuel pump may stop operating. If this occurs, warning lights and messages may be displayed on the instrument panel, and the engine may run rough. This can result in a vehicle stall, and the vehicle may be unable to be restarted. If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash.

FAQ

What is Toyota lemon law buyback?
In some situations, if your Toyota 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 Toyota. 
What if a Toyota 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 Toyota 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.
