Am I still eligible for lemon law benefits if my warranty expires?

What’s the time limit to seek Chrysler lemon law claims?

It’s advised to begin the Chrysler lemon law claims process as soon as possible. Your case may become weaker the longer you wait. For instance, waiting months (or years) after the vehicle meets Chrysler lemon law qualifications may indicate the defect was not “substantial” – and the manufacturer could use that to deny your claim.
Driving a defective vehicle also puts you and other drivers at risk. Do yourself a favor and get the process started quickly.
Can I seek a Chrysler lemon law buyback for a used vehicle?
In California, consumers can seek Chrysler lemon law claims for used vehicles. Dealerships commonly sell vehicles with dealer warranties, which are good for at least 30 days or before 1,000 miles accrue on the odometer. If your used Chrysler meets California’s lemon law criteria within the terms of the dealer warranty, it can be processed in the same way as a new vehicle.
What happens if I bought my Chrysler “as is”?
“As is” clauses mean the vehicle has no warranty in place and the buyer takes full responsibility for all defects. Most private car sales are done with “as is” agreements. Dealerships, however, are required to specify if the vehicle is sold with a dealer warranty or “as is” agreement on the buyer’s guide.
What happens if there is no indication of a dealer warranty or “as is” agreement?
If the dealership doesn’t specify a warranty or “as is” agreement on the buyer’s guide, the vehicle will have an implied warranty of merchantability. In California, these are unspoken warranties promising the vehicle is fit for the intended purpose and covers the essential components of the vehicle. These warranties are generally good for 60 days up to a year.
How much do Chrysler lemon law California lawyers cost?
Hiring a lemon attorney to handle your Chrysler lemon law claim shouldn’t cost you anything out of pocket.
If the vehicle meets California’s lemon law qualifications, Chrysler is required to pay for your attorney fees and court costs. This is why lemon law lawyers operate on contingency fee agreements. As they know they will get paid once they win the case, they shouldn’t ask you for a penny upfront – and they won’t take your case unless they think they can win. In other words, ANYONE can afford a skilled Chrysler lemon law lawyer.
Should I Hire a Specialized Attorney to Seek a Chrysler Lemon Law Buyback?
The importance of hiring a skilled attorney to manage your Chrysler lemon law claim cannot be overstated. Even if your vehicle clearly meets the state’s criteria, there are no guarantees in Chrysler lemon law settlements.
Chrysler is a global brand with extremely high-powered legal defense teams. Trying to seek fair compensation without an attorney will almost always end in the consumer getting short-changed. Manufacturers must be held accountable for selling defective products. A lemon law attorney will make sure you get a fair settlement promptly.
