What is a “Lemon Vehicle”?
A lemon vehicle is one that is under warranty and has defects that the manufacturer is unwilling or unable to fix. While each state has its own set of lemon laws, generally lemon law states that if your vehicle has a substantial impairment to its safety, use, or value, and Fisker cannot repair it in a reasonable number of repair attempts then you might be driving a Fisker lemon. When you purchase or lease a Fisker, the manufacturer or its representative is responsible for upholding any express warranties it made. If you wind up with a lemon and the manufacturer won’t repurchase, replace or compensate you, you will want to speak to a Lemon Law attorney about your legal options.

Can you sue if you bought a Fisker lemon?
If you take your vehicle in for repair and the manufacturer isn’t able to repair it then you may very well have a lemon on your hands. In order to be certain that you qualify, you’ll want to speak directly to a Lemon Law attorney that will be knowledgeable with your state’s guidelines. For instance, in California, you can only file a Fisker Lemon Law suit if the following is true:
- Your car is still under the manufacturer’s warranty.
- The defect or component that is malfunctioning is one that’s covered under the warranty.
- You purchased the car less than 18 months ago or the odometer reads less than 18,000 miles (whichever occurs first).
- You’ve notified the manufacturer in writing about the need for repair. (Save a copy of all correspondence).
- You’ve taken your car to repair the issue four or more times (two or more times if the issue is one that can lead to injury or death) or if your car has been out of service because of disrepair for at least 30 days.
