California Lemon Law
If you purchased or leased a vehicle in California and you ended up taking the car in for repairs for the same defect multiple times, the California Lemon Law can help you get your money back or get a replacement vehicle. When we buy a new car from a dealership, we expect the vehicle to be in top condition. Unfortunately, there are those few vehicles that are manufactured with some sort of defects that cause the vehicles to fail or create inconvenience when driving.
If this was the case for you, you have rights under the lemon law in California that offer you remedies for purchasing a lemon car. The federal lemon law (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) offers protection for consumers who purchased a defective vehicle in all states. There is the option of a refund for the car purchase and for a replacement vehicle of the defective car.
Remedies Under The California Lemon Law
Generally, vehicles under the manufacturer’s warranty is considered a lemon car if:
- the defect first occurred within the first 18,000 miles or 18 months (whichever comes first)
- the dealer failed to repair the defect within reasonable time
Here are some remedies for consumers who purchased a vehicle that meets the above requirements:
- The manufacturer buys back the lemon car
- The manufacturer gives the consumer a replacement vehicle
