A purchaser or a lessee of a car or truck or other vehicle has numerous protections under both state and federal laws if the vehicle does not perform as provided according to an express warranty. Warranty legislation is complicated and hard to comprehensively explain in a small space. These statements briefly detail the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, what is widely known as the “Lemon Law.”
CA Lemon Laws as well as federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) offer remedies to California purchasers and lessees of flawed cars, vans and other vehicles and consumer products including motorbikes, recreational vehicles, motorboats, computer systems and various consumer appliances and merchandise. To meet the requirements under the California Lemon Law and the federal Lemon Law, you need to have consumer goods that has suffered many repair attempts within the manufacturer’s factory warranty. Lemon Law settlements range from reimbursement, replacement unit or cash payment.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, typically called the CA Lemon Law, was passed to provide relief to consumers from troublesome motor vehicles and other consumer goods. Generally, the California Lemon Law is applicable to vehicles that the manufacturers are incapable of repairing within the warranty period after being given a reasonable amount of opportunities to repair it. For qualifying autos, the automobile manufacturer needs to give the consumer his or her money back and even pay the balance of the outstanding loan owed or exchange the auto with a substantially equivalent model.
The California Lemon Law additionally mandates that the manufacturer pay for the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs if the consumer is deemed to be the prevailing party. This makes the laws financially feasible for people who would otherwise not be able to retain the services of an attorney.
