Chrysler Lemon Law in California


Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Stellantis (known as Chrysler) is one of the “Big Three” automotive companies in America. It was founded by Walter Chrysler in 1925 when the Maxwell Motor Company was reorganized into the Chrysler Corporation. While well-known for the Chrysler brand, Stellantis is also involved with the Dodge, Jeep, and Ram brands. Chrysler invented the minivan, which stands for innovation, efficiency, and functionality. It’s ever-evolving to deliver all types of vehicles, including the ultimate family vehicle.

Chrysler Lemon Law Tips

When you purchased your Chrysler vehicle, you anticipated it to live up to the brand’s standards of efficiency and functionality. If it’s not and you are repeatedly taking it to the shop for repairs, or the shop doesn’t know what’s wrong with it, it’s essential that you take specific steps to protect yourself. These steps include:

  • Take your car to the dealer or an authorized Chrysler repair shop
  • Ensure that the mechanic accurately documents the issues your vehicle is having on their repair invoice
  • Get and keep copies of all repair invoices and any other crucial vehicle records, such as maintenance records
  • Contact the Law Office of Michael Humphries for further direction

Common Defects with Chrysler Vehicles

Vehicle problems can be quite concerning. No matter where you are going or what you are doing, you need and deserve a safe and reliable vehicle. While vehicles that are lemons can have a variety of different issues, here are the most common ones reported by Chrysler consumers:

  • Transmission issues—most frequently rough shifting and shuddering
  • Malfunctioning infotainment systems
  • Engine trouble
  • Randomly deploying active head restraints
  • Electrical system malfunctions leading to fires
  • Airbag inflators rupturing during crashes
  • Defective powertrain control modules
  • Cruise control defects, such as failure to disengage
  • A constant need for software updates

What if Chrysler or the Chrysler Dealership Can’t Fix Your Car?

It’s the law that if a car dealer or its brand’s manufacturer isn’t able to fix a serious vehicle warranty defect after a “reasonable” number of efforts, the manufacturer must either:

  • Replace the vehicle
  • Refund its purchase price

The vehicle owner gets to choose if they want a new vehicle or would rather have their money refunded.

What is a “Reasonable” Number of Attempts?

The law doesn’t identify “reasonable” attempts. However, the Lemon Law Presumption suggests the following guidelines to identify when a “reasonable” number of repair attempts have been met by the car’s manufacturer:

  • The manufacturer or dealer hasn’t been able to fix the same concern within four or more attempts
  • Your Chrysler’s issues might cause death or serious bodily injury if it’s driven and the manufacturer or dealer has had at least two failed repair attempts
  • Your vehicle has been in the repair shop for more than 30 days (it doesn’t have to be successive) to fix any warranty-covered concerns
