3 Cars That Are Likely To Be A Lemon In San Diego


The process of choosing a new car can be difficult enough, but the ambiguity that comes with purchasing a lemon makes it even more difficult. 

Nobody wants to have ongoing repair problems that reduce their expensive new investment and financial commitment to a massive piece of scrap metal. We, the Lemon Law Experts, crunched the data to determine which automakers file lawsuits the most frequently. In order to calculate the overall score, we looked at all of the lemon law cases that Consumers Union Legal Services (CULS) successfully defended between January 1st, 2011, and December 31st, 2014, sorted them by make and model for each year, and then averaged the findings. 

The following is based on information that Consumers Union Legal Services gave exclusively to AutoSlash (CULS). Therefore, if you’re considering purchasing a particular brand or model, these are the chances that you could end up in court over a lemon. 

  • Hyundai

The most commonly handled vehicles by CULS were the Hyundai Accent, Elantra, Santa Fe, and Sonata. Only the Kia Rio earned higher overall for lemons than these vehicles as a group. All four models had a 46 percent annual rate of successfully defended claims, with Santa Fe having the highest rate at 50 percent. 

  • Toyota

Despite receiving less attention than its recall-related problems from a few years ago, Toyota still has dependability issues, which leads to a large number of lemon law cases being brought each year. For an average score of 41%, Consumers Union Legal Services won the most claims in the Yaris, Corolla, and Tacoma. for all three of those. 

  • Nissan

The Versa, Sentra, and Titan all received an overall rating of 34%. These cars also had a yearly defence rate of 34% on average. Nissan automobiles were involved in 6% of all CULS incidents between 2011 and 2014. 

In addition to being top performers in the eyes of Consumers Union Legal Services, Hyundai and Kia have been acknowledged by Consumer Reports as two brands with minimal defect risk.

Why Are Cars Sometimes Called Lemons?
