While you expect to avoid issues with a vehicle known for its reliability, Nissan is not immune from manufacturing defects. If your Nissan vehicle’s defect impairs its safety, use or value, chances are you may have a lemon. However, you should not be discouraged. Your vehicle may qualify for a repurchase under the California lemon law as long as you complained about the defect within the warranty period, the dealership was unable to repair it after a reasonable number of attempts, and you bring your claim within the applicable statute of limitations.
If your purchased or leased, new or used Nissan qualifies as a lemon, the manufacturer will repurchase the vehicle, provide a full refund including your down payment and payments toward the vehicle (minus a mileage offset up to the time of the first applicable repair order), registration and all out of pocket expenses such as towing and rental costs. In addition, Nissan will pay for your attorney’s fees and costs pursuant to the California lemon law. Call the Law Office of Alisa Goukasian, APC for a free case review.

For your car to be considered a lemon, the following must apply:
• The identifiable defect (and subsequent complaint) must have first occurred while the vehicle was under the manufacturer’s warranty.
• You must have provided the dealership a reasonable opportunity to fix the defect. A reasonable opportunity may be as little as two repair attempts if the defect can foreseeably cause serious bodily injury or death.
Yes, used vehicles can also be deemed lemons if the defect (and subsequent complaint to the dealership) occurred while under the manufacturer’s warranty, the dealership was provided with a reasonable opportunity to fix the defect and you are within the applicable statute of limitations to bring the claim.
