Owning a luxury vehicle does not exempt you from experiencing car defects. Luxury car companies pride themselves on being the standard to which all car companies aspire, but even the best engineering companies sometimes fall prey to the lemon law. The 2010 Cadillac DTS is one of the newest recalls that the United States has seen in a long line of non-luxury vehicle recalls. Although German cars are often viewed as the hallmark of engineering perfection, Mercedes-Benz was recently ordered to pay almost half a million dollars in damages and legal fees to a Wisconsin client who wasn't given a refund when he bought a defective vehicle.
It is important to not labor under the delusion that the more expensive a car is, the more unlikely it is that the vehicle will experience any defects. Most states agree that three repairs is enough to consider a car a lemon. In California, a vehicle is considered defective if it is subject to repair more than four times within 18 months or 18,000 miles.
It is important to understand the car defect laws of the state that you live in so that you are not cheated out of thousands of dollars from companies who provided you with a defective car.
