California Lemon Law protects you against defective Toyotas
Driving a Toyota 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 Toyota.
With a reputation for durability, innovation, affordability, and reliability, Toyotas have been awarded Kelley Blue Book’s “Best Resale Value: Brand” six times in the last decade.
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 Toyota 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 7 common Toyota problems (and symptoms)
serious enough to warrant a California Lemon Law claim.
- Brake Problems —
grinding, pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, car pulls to one side when braking
- Suspension Troubles —
squeaking, clanking or knocking noises, vehicle leans when parked, bounces over bumps
- Faulty Water Pumps —
leaks coolant, white smoke from radiator, loose timing belt, corrosion on water pump
- Fuel Pump Failures —
car won’t start, sputtering engine, sudden surges, odd noises under the hood
- Oil Sludge in Engines —
check engine light is on, bad fuel economy, overheating
- Unintended Acceleration —

- Poor Air Conditioning Conditions —
warmer air flow, less powerful airflow, overheating, fluid leaks
How the California Lemon Law Protects Your Toyota.
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 Toyota.
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 Toyota, you know that’s not always the case. For example:
- Currently, Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2021 RAV4 Prime vehicles.
The Hybrid Vehicle Control’s software could cause the system to shut down, increasing the
risk of a crash. To date, approximately 16,000 vehicles are involved.
- Recently, Toyota reached a settlement potentially worth $150 million to resolve a U.S, class-
action litigation tied to a recall of about 3.36 million 2013-2020 vehicles whose defective low-
pressure fuel pumps could cause engines to stall.
- There have been reports of Lemon Law claims being filed regarding brake system issues in
2021 Toyota Camrys. It is stated that the ABS fails to function as intended and that brake
pedals fail to respond when depressed. One driver cited that while depressing the brake pedal
to park, it instead caused the vehicle to lunge forward. Owners are still awaiting an outcome.
These are just a few examples of the legal actions Toyota has faced. Among the most commonly reported models are the Camry, RAV4, Corolla, Echo, Prius, Sienna, Highlander, Tundra, but the truth is that any model with recurring problems could be a lemon. Even yours.
