AUTO LEMON LAWYER KEVIN R. DUCK

Is My Jeep a Lemon?

What qualifies a Jeep as a lemon?

Lemon laws vary depending on the state where you purchased the Jeep.

However, you must generally meet generally three criteria for the law to deem a vehicle a lemon:

  • The defect must impact the safety, use, or value of the vehicle
  • The issue must still exist after multiple reasonable attempts at repair
  • The vehicle cannot be used for an extended period due to repairs

Some states, like Colorado, require that the Jeep is new and not leased or used.

Other states may extend these criteria to personal watercraft or any passenger vehicle with a maximum occupancy of 10 people.

In many states, motorhomes and RVs will not count. However, that does not mean you don’t have a valid compensation claim.

Many federal consumer rights protections exist for vehicles not covered by state lemon laws, and our legal team can explain these situations during a free case evaluation.

What defects qualify a Jeep as a lemon?

Overall, states require that the nonconformity or defect prevents the vehicle from operating as intended.

While multiple problems could keep your car non-operational for 30 business days or more, common issues with Jeeps that may qualify as a lemon include:

  • Transmission or powertrain failures
  • Engine issues such as stalling or overheating
  • Electrical system malfunctions
  • Steering and suspension problems
  • Safety recalls and noncompliant repairs
  • Other persistent issues that significantly impact the safety or use of the vehicle

Ultimately, any defects not resulting from wear and tear, aftermarket modifications not covered by the warranty, or driver negligence may qualify your Jeep as a lemon.

Even if you think your Jeep may not qualify based on the defect criteria listed above, it is vital to consult with a Jeep auto lemon lawyer to determine the strength of your case.

Who is eligible to file a Jeep lemon law claim?

Generally, any Jeep owner can file a claim provided that:

  • The Jeep is within six months of the original warranty; or
  • The Jeep was delivered within a year; or
  • The Jeep is within 12,000 to 24,000 miles of the original warranty (depending on state laws)
  • The Jeep was purchased in the state where you file the claim.

Some states may allow for exceptions to these requirements in certain circumstances. Contact the Auto Lemon Law legal team to learn more about your state’s eligibility requirements.

How Much Is My Jeep Auto Lemon Case Worth?

It is easy to think that your defective Jeep is worth little, and pursuing legal action may not be worth the time, money, or effort.

However, consider the potential costs and compensation amounts typically awarded in auto lemon consumer rights cases:

  • Vehicle price. Successful award amounts can cover the cost of a new vehicle or reimburse you for your original purchase. The average cost of a new car in the USA hovers around $48,000, which cash-strapped drivers could consider substantial.
  • Repair costs. Lemon law compensation may also include reimbursement for any repairs you have already paid for to try to fix the defect. The price of fixing common transmission and engine defects can exceed $3,000 per attempt, quickly adding up to tens of thousands of dollars in compensation.
  • Additional expenses. Lemon laws may also cover additional expenses such as rental car costs, towing fees, registration, etc. Considering that Colorado, Louisiana, and Texas drivers can spend anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000+ a month on vehicle expenses, you don’t want to miss out on this compensation.
  • Legal fees. States require responsible parties to pay the legal fees if the claimant successfully proves their case. With court filing fees alone totaling hundreds or thousands of dollars, recovering the total cost of legal representation makes it worth pursuing your claim with a lemon law attorney.

While lemon law cases usually include these compensatory amounts, the compensation amount may vary because each case is unique. For an accurate assessment of your defective Jeep’s value, contact our experienced auto lemon lawyers.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    In some limited instances, the manufacturer may repurchase the vehicle. In most cases, a cash award will be the remedy.  Typically [80%] recovery is anywhere 5% to 15% of the purchase price. The range depends on the number of repairs, nature of the repairs. mileage on the vehicle and days out of service. In some instances, the damages will exceed 15% due to the extent of the defect, circumstances and days out of service.

    The law provides that if the buyer proves a manufacturing defect with vehicle that the manufacturer is liable for the buyers’ attorney fees. Part of our investigation and evaluation process is to identify manufacturing defects. When we proceed, we are confident we can prove a manufacturing defect. Thus, we seek our attorney fees from the manufacturer. If a settlement can be reached, the fees will be part of the settlement agreement. If the case goes to trial, the fees will be part of a verdict or order. Either way, you are not required to pre-pay fees, pay a retainer or pay fees in the event we fail to make a recovery on your behalf.

    Louisiana laws that address motor vehicle warranties include: La.R.S. 51:1941, et seq. (“Louisiana Lemon Law”), La.C.C.Art. 2520, et seq. (Redhibition), 15 U.S.C. 2301, et seq. (“Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act”), Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code and La.R.S. 51:1401, et seq. (Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices Act).

    It shall be presumed that a reasonable number of attempts have been undertaken to conform a motor vehicle to the applicable express warranties if the vehicle is out of service by reason of repair for a cumulative total of forty-five or more calendar days or the same nonconformity has been subject to repair four or more times by the manufacturer, its agent, or its authorized dealer within the warranty term or during a period of one year following the date of the original delivery of the motor vehicle to the consumer, whichever is the earlier date.

    “Nonconformity” means any specific or generic defect or malfunction, or any defect or condition which substantially impairs the use, market value or both of a motor vehicle.”

    The seller warrants the buyer against redhibitory defects, or vices, in the thing sold. A defect is redhibitory when it renders the thing useless, or its use so inconvenient that it must be presumed that a buyer would not have bought the thing had he known of the defect. The existence of such a defect gives a buyer the right to obtain rescission of the sale. A defect is redhibitory also when, without rendering the thing totally useless, it diminishes its usefulness or its value so that it must be presumed that a buyer would still have bought it but for a lesser price. The existence of such a defect limits the right of a buyer to a reduction of the price. NOTE: There are no minimum number of repairs nor is their a minimum number of days out of service. Redhibition simply requires that the vehicle possess a defect at the time of sale that rendered it useless or so inconvenient a reasonable buyer would not have bought the vehicle. 

    The Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act is a United States federal law (15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq.) that governs warranties on consumer products. The law does not require any product to have a warranty (it may be sold “as is”), but if it does have a warranty, the warranty must comply with this law. The law was created to fix problems as a result of manufacturers using disclaimers on warranties in an unfair or misleading manner and provides consumers with remedies for violation of express and implied warranties.

    Any person who suffers any ascertainable loss of money or movable property, corporeal or incorporeal, as a result of the use or employment by another person of an unfair or deceptive method, act, or practice declared unlawful by R.S. 51:1405, may bring an action individually but not in a representative capacity to recover actual damages. If the court finds the unfair or deceptive method, act, or practice was knowingly used, after being put on notice by the attorney general, the court shall award three times the actual damages sustained. In the event that damages are awarded under this Section, the court shall award to the person bringing such action reasonable attorney fees and costs. Upon a finding by the court that an action under this Section was groundless and brought in bad faith or for purposes of harassment, the court may award to the defendant reasonable attorney fees and costs.

      Duck Law Firm represented me when my brand new vehicle left me stranded on four occasions. The car company would not let me out of my lease or replace my car. It was clearly a lemon! Duck Law Firm was able to get all the money I paid, including my insurance refunded. If you have any issues with your vehicle, I highly recommend Kevin Duck and the Duck Law Firm.
