Toyota vehicles have a reputation for “uncompromising quality, reliability, and safety.” Incorporated in 1937, Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese manufacturer producing about 10 million vehicles per year. Toyota is a leader in the development of fuel-efficient hybrid electric vehicles, starting with its production of the Toyota Prius in 1997. Presently, Toyota sells more than 40 hybrid vehicle models worldwide. In addition, Toyota produces everything from SUVs to pickup trucks. However, Toyota vehicles, like all vehicles, have their share of lemons.
If you took your Toyota in for repeated repairs for the same issue, contact the Law Office of Alisa Goukasian at (818)242-4601.
Despite its reputation for uncompromising quality, Toyota has its fair share of manufacturing defects. Sometimes, a select few vehicles are manufactured with a defect after coming out of the assembly line. Other times, an entire model of vehicles have a manufacturing defect such as being equipped with a faulty fuel pump. Fortunately, manufacturers are quick to issue recalls to fix widespread issues and avoid catastrophic results. However, sometimes the manufacturer may not even be aware of the problem until consumers report their complaints.
If your Toyota 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 Toyota 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), reimburse you for registration fees and all out of pocket expenses such as towing and rental costs. In addition, the manufacturer will pay for your attorney’s fees and costs pursuant to the California lemon law. Call the Law Offices of Alisa Goukasian at (818)242-4601 for a free case review.
