BMW provides basic, power train and emissions warranties with new cars purchased in California. Those warranties follow the car until they expire. If your new, used, leased or purchased vehicle is in the shop too much and the problems started during the warranty period, it may be a lemon. If the manufacturer won’t repurchase, replace or compensate you, then you should speak with Patrea Bullock the California Lemon Law Expert about your legal options. BMW models include BMW 335i, BMW 135i, BMW 535i, BMW X6, BMW xDrive 35i, BMW Z4 roadster, BMW X5, BMW X6, BMW 5 series, BMW 6 series, BMW 7 series, BMW 5 series Gran Turismos.
Even if the manufacturer agrees to repurchase, replace or compensate you, having an attorney on your side, protecting your rights during the negotiations is highly recommended. The Release they will ask you to sign is a legal, binding agreement and should not be entered without legal advice. The Release could have clauses that are either not legal or not necessary and you could be unnecessarily giving up rights. Since the advice of counsel is FREE, don’t put yourself in this position.

Defining a “Lemon Vehicle”
To qualify under the California Vehicle Lemon Law the vehicle must have a problem which the dealerships have been unable to repair. For the law to apply, the dealerships must be given a reasonable number of opportunities to repair the vehicle within the warranty period. Consumers with lemon BMWs have a right to sue the manufacturer for damages if the manufacturer won’t take care of the issue promptly.
