Are You Experiencing Repeated Repair Attempts With Your Dodge Vehicle?

Dodge is one of the oldest and most instantly recognized car brands in the United States and around the world. Almost 100 years ago, the owner of Chrysler purchased the Dodge Brothers car manufacturing company and began producing some of the most memorable car models in automotive history. Now, many decades later, some Dodge vehicles have annoying and even dangerous defects and reliability issues that qualify them as lemons under California law. California’s Lemon Law Statute describes lemons as vehicles with the following issues:

  • Cars, pickup trucks, vans, or SUVs with problems still present after 4 repair attempts, or following 2 attempts for issues that cause safety hazards
  • Vehicles with one or more significant defects 
  • A vehicle that’s been out for repairs for 30 days or more

If your Dodge has any of the above issues and had repair attempts covered under warranty, it may be covered by California’s lemon law. You may have a valid claim for compensation for the amount you’ve paid toward your car, loan payoff, plus incidental amounts related to having a car in the repair shop, as well as legal fees.


Reported Dodge lemon law issues include: Engine, Suspension, Transmission, Steering, Cooling System, and Air Bags. 

Some common lemon law complaints against these vehicles come from multiple vehicle systems. Common complaints brought forward against Dodge include:

  • Engine stalling and oil-burning problems
  • Transmission problems including lurching, hard shifts, and total transmission failure
  • Axle, brake, and steering vibrations
  • Push to start button failure
  • Faulty fuel pumps and supply lines
  • Faulty Uconnect Infotainment systems with random reboots and screen blanks
  • Faulty windshield bonding which has led to windshield detachment and accidents

Buying or leasing a new car should be an exciting and rewarding experience – the last thing you expect is to end up with repeated visits to the dealership. At Young & Young APC, we understand the hardship and financial stress that a defective vehicle can cause. Our Lemon Law attorneys are committed to providing you with the utmost professional service and we will fight for the compensation you deserve.

Is it True That California Lemon Laws Apply to Leased and Used Vehicles?

California is one of several states that allow owners of leased cars and used cars to file lemon law claims. The compensation for these types of claims is different than that for vehicles purchased outright while they’re new. Those who’ve bought a lemon gain back the amount they’ve paid toward the vehicle, plus any loan payoff, and payment of legal fees. If you’ve leased a Dodge and it meets California’s criteria for lemon law claims, the dealer must buy out the remainder of the lease and reimburse you for the amount you’ve already paid as well as your legal fees.

To make a lemon law claim on a used Dodge vehicle, the car must have been purchased with a written manufacturer warranty and had repair attempts covered under the original manufacturer warranty. Lemon laws for used vehicles in California only apply to cars that were not sold “as is.” If you bought your car “as is” you effectively sign away your right to reimbursement for any mechanical failures you discover.

Common Problems and Pitfalls With Lemon Laws in California

Large, powerful car manufacturers like Dodge use powerful defense law firms to try to avoid paying lemon law claims or to minimize the payouts. Some common tactics these companies might use to avoid paying your claim include the following:

  • Offering an extended warranty instead of paying the full amount required by the lemon law
  • Offering you a fast cash settlement out of court 
  • Offering arbitration as a solution and then later using the negative determination against you if you choose to pursue the matter in a courtroom
  • Stalling the process until you either give up or the warranty runs out on the vehicle

If you’re tired of your Dodge spending more time in the repair shop than in your garage or on the road, it’s best to request a consultation with a California lemon law attorney before dealing with the issue through the manufacturer or dealership. Our firm has years of experience in lemon laws and understands the tactics commonly used by powerful manufacturers so we can help defend your rights.
