Throughout Jeep’s history, this brand has been involved in several major vehicle recalls due to product and part defects. A recall is a public notice regarding a known defect that could endanger consumers. Examples include:
You can look up your specific Jeep using the VIN on the NHTSA’s website to check for a safety issue or vehicle recall. Note that your Jeep does not have to be part of a recall, however, to file a Lemon Law case.
Any defect that affects the use, safety, or value of your Jeep and is covered under an express or implied warranty could qualify you for a Lemon Law claim in California. This type of case can require the auto manufacturer to cover your related costs, as well as replace the defective vehicle or give you a refund (Jeep buyback). If desired, you could also elect a cash settlement instead.
