Breach of Warranty FAQ:
Q. What is the car warranty claim process?
When filing a warranty claim with the manufacturer, it's important that you file the claim as soon as you become aware of the defect. Failure to do so may negate the warranty. Sometimes you will be able to notify the dealer, rather than the manufacturer, but it's important to check your warranty to ensure you are notifying the proper party. Once you file the claim, the manufacturer should get back to you with their proposal to fix the defect. If they do not, you should contact a professional breach of warranty lawyer.
Q. What is covered under car warranty? What are the basic terms of a warranty?
In general, a car warranty is a promise given by the manufacturer to repair or cover the cost of repairs for certain defects that may arise with the car over a set period of time. The specifics of your car warranty may vary from one manufacturer to the next.
Q. What should I do if my car warranty is not being honored?
If you have filed a written warranty claim with the manufacturer and they have refused to provide the requested repairs, or have failed to get back to you, it's important that you contact a breach of warranty lawyer as soon as possible. The California Lemon Lawyers are ready to represent you in a breach of warranty lawsuit and deal with the manufacturer on your behalf.
