Honda urges recall repair as 20th death reported

Safety is a top priority to car manufacturers. While the designers of modern cars surely do care about their customers, they also certainly want to avoid the costly auto defect class actions that many car companies have faced in recent years. Many times, a company will recall certain vehicle models to intercept the issues before tragedy strikes. Surprisingly, for those California car owners with Takata airbags, this recall has not seemed to be urgent enough to complete the recall repairs.

3 things to check during a test drive

A test drive doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about how the vehicle runs, but it can be a good indicator of potential problems. For new drivers, however, it’s often hard to know what exactly to look for during this trial. The engine starts and the wheels roll forward. What else can you tell from the next 15-30 minutes?

Car owners with auto defects smell a rat

Many automobile owners in California are happy to contribute to the efforts to improve the environment. This may mean driving slower, sharing rides and purchasing hybrid vehicles. However, owners of certain hybrid cars are learning that their vehicles may be attracting more than environmentally conscious drivers. In fact, some have filed class action lawsuits against the manufacturers of certain models for not properly correcting a dangerous issue in their hybrid vehicles.

Dealer fraud ends in repossession of man's first car

When purchasing a used car, consumers often feel they have to take special precautions to avoid getting ripped off. There are countless ways in which an unscrupulous car dealer can take advantage of someone who has little knowledge about potential defects in a previously owned vehicle. Perhaps no one is more vulnerable to dealer fraud than a first-time car buyer. California consumers may be able to sympathize with the dilemma of one new owner.

Protected by lemon law, consumers can be proactive

Purchasing a car is rarely the exciting party that TV commercials make it seem. In fact, many may procrastinate making the decision to trade in or buy because it typically means taking on a loan for something that quickly loses value. What can be even more frustrating is paying the money for a car only to find out it has a defect that costs more and more money when the owner makes repeated visits to the dealer for repairs. While consumers are protected by California's lemon law, it's always best to avoid buying a lemon in the first place.
