Mercedes Benz Lemon Law in California

Mercedes Benz

Mercedes-Benz was founded in 1926 and specializes in producing commercial and luxury vehicles. The company’s headquarters are located in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. In 2018, Mercedes-Benz was the largest brand of premium vehicles across the globe, selling 2.31 million passenger vehicles.

The brand’s origins come from Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft’s 1901 Mercedes and Carl Benz’s 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which is thought to be the first internal combustion engine in a self-propelled automobile. The Mercedes-Benz slogan is “the best or nothing.”

What to Do If Your Mercedes Benz is a Lemon

Having to repeatedly take your Mercedes Benz vehicle in for repairs or having a mechanic tell you they don’t know what is wrong with it can be highly irritating and worrisome. You might be wondering if your vehicle is safe and reliable or if you wasted your money purchasing it. If you suspect your vehicle might be a lemon, here is what you should do to protect your interests:

  • Take it to an authorized repair shop or the dealership
  • Make sure they include detailed notes about what is going on with your vehicle on the repair invoice
  • Request a copy of the repair invoice for your own records
  • Keep the invoice along with other documentation about repair attempts and maintenance you have done on your vehicle, as they may be needed for evidence in your claim later
  • Last but certainly not least, contact the Law Office of Michael Humphries for help seeking compensation and exercising your rights

Common Defects with Mercedes Benz Vehicles

Mercedes-Benz manufactures some of the sportiest, most efficient, and most reliable vehicles. However, whether it’s airbag recalls or engine problems, even the German automaker sometimes produces vehicles that struggle and doesn’t live up to its slogan. Common defects with Mercedes-Benz vehicles include:

  • Engine mounts failure
  • Engine misfires
  • Oil and differential leaks
  • Air suspension failure
  • Transmission issues
  • Rusts easily & rapidly
  • Broken front suspension system
  • Flawed air pump system relays
  • Steering lock mechanism failure
  • Low brake pressure
  • Airbag malfunction

Even if your vehicle’s problems aren’t on this list, you could still have a lemon on your hands.

Is Your Mercedes Benz a Lemon?

Some Mercedes Benz vehicles are lemons, subject to multiple repair attempts for problems that significantly impair their safety, use, or value and make them lemons under California or federal lemon laws. If Mercedes Benz cannot repair them within a reasonable number of attempts, their owners are entitled to lemon law relief, including a replacement vehicle or a full refund of the lemon vehicle and reasonable compensation for attorneys’ fees and other costs.
