California Lemon Law protects you against defective Hyundai vehicles.
Driving a Hyundai Is Great, Until It’s Not.
The California Lemon Law Works to
Protect Your Investment … and Safety.
When it comes to owning a new or CPO car, you want one that you know is safe, economical, and will last. That’s why so many of your fellow Californians have opted to get behind the wheel of a Hyundai.
With an established reputation for quality, craftsmanship, design, and reliability, Hyundai vehicles offer some of the same features as the more expensive, well-known Japanese brands, but at a more affordable price.
But even among the best of cars, a lemon can sometimes slip in. Those who unwittingly own one know the frustrations that come along with it. Persistent engine problems, endless electrical glitches and unrelenting transmission headaches are just a few of the complaints.
If your warrantied Hyundai exhibits recurring defects, you could benefit greatly — financially and with peace of mind — by calling the law offices of Strategic Legal Practices. We can help turn your potential lemon into a refund, a replacement car or lucrative cash compensation.
Here are 6 common Hyundai problems (and symptoms)
serious enough to warrant a California Lemon Law claim.
- Electrical Problems —
faulty wiring, malfunctioning infotainment systems, airbag deployment failures
- Engine Troubles —
stalling, oil leaks, extensive oil consumption, rough idling, complete engine failure
- Transmission Malfunctions —
hesitation, no acceleration, gear slippage, rough shifting or won’t shift
- Manufacturing Quality —
door handles and mirrors breaking off, plastic molding wearing quickly, rust or corrosion
- Brake System Failures —
ABS malfunctions, leaks allowing the electrics to short out causing potential fire hazard
- Steering and Handling —
wobbling when turning, clicking noises, vibrations leading to potential loss of control
How the California Lemon Law Protects Your Hyundai.
The Lemon Law in California states that your vehicle must have “noncomformities,” which are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the original factory warranty. If any of these problematic “noncomformities” affect your car’s use, safety or value — even after a number of repair attempts have been made — you may be eligible to file a claim.
As one of California’s premier Lemon Law litigators, the expert attorneys at Strategic Legal Practices will work with you and fight for you to get a buyback, a replacement vehicle, a refund or a cash settlement that includes all costs you may have incurred.
Know your rights when it comes to a faulty Hyundai.
You’ve shelled out good money for your new or CPO vehicle, and as long as it’s under warranty, you expect smooth driving. But by the number or recalls, class-action suits, and Lemon Law claims filed against Hyundai, you know that’s not always the case. For example:
- One recall was for a potential fire hazard in tow hitch harnesses that came as original
equipment. U.S. safety regulators post that water can get into a circuit board on the hitch and
cause a short circuit even if the ignition is off. Affected vehicles include the 2019-2023 Santa
Fe, 2021-2023 Santa Fe Hybrid, and 2022-2023 Santa Cruz — over 571,000 owners in all.
- A $200 million class-action lawsuit recently reached a settlement over an extraordinary
number of claims that Hyundai vehicles are too easy to steal due to a traditional “insert-and-
turn” steel key ignition system.
- A number of successful Lemon Law claims have already been filed for premature clutch
failure; power steering giving out; engine seizure while driving; multiple electrical failures; car
accelerating on its own; and other serious problems.
These are just a few examples of the legal actions Hyundai has faced. Among the most commonly reported models are the Accent, Elantra, Entourage, Santa Fe, Sonata, Genesis, but the truth is that any model with recurring problems could be a lemon. Even yours.
