Land Rover is a British car company comprised mainly of luxury off-roading vehicles. Owned by the multinational Jaguar Land Rover, it is a subsidiary of Tata Motors. Though it may be hard to imagine, the first Land Rovers were designed as an agricultural vehicle and placed the steering wheel in the center of the dashboard. Today, the top models are a vision of rugged luxury with the price tag to match.
Even with this reputation, Land Rover may still be subject to a faulty product. If your Land Rover is not operating properly after repair attempts, you may have purchased a lemon. Consumers based in the Oakland Alameda County section of California should reach out to Kaufman & Kavicky, LLP for their concerns regarding state and federal lemon laws.
