Vallejo, CA asked in Car Accidents, Products Liability and Lemon Law for California

Q: My car was wrecked by the dealership after 1 week of purchase, is there anything I can do for them to refund me?

Purchased a car (2015, clean carfax) 5 days later it wouldn't start, had it towed back. The next day after I got it back, it was making a noise, took it back. Was told parts were put on wrong. On my way to pick it up, they called and said it was in an accident not to worry about it they will fix it. I told them I no longer want the car, I believe they sold me a lemon and I paid over $30k I don't want a wrecked car.

A: Contact a lemon law attorney, but I don't believe that being in an accident makes a car a "lemon". That usually refers to a defect that can't be repaired after more than one attempt.
