Fiat provides basic, powertrain 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. Fiat models include Fiat 500, Fiat 500c, Fiat 500e, Fiat 500L, Fiat Linea, Fiat Punto, and the Fiat Uno.
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. Call the California Lemon Law Expert today at 916-672-8443.
