A buyer or lessee of a car or truck or other type of vehicle that is purchased or leased with a warranty, enjoys many protections from both state and federal regulations in the event the vehicle does not perform as it should per the warranty. Warranty laws are generally complicated and is difficult to explain in a brief space. The information herein quickly demonstrate the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and what’s generally referred to as “Lemon Law.”
CA Lemon Laws and the federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) provide relief for California consumers who have bought or leased a flawed automobile, truck or other motor vehicle or consumer product including motorbikes, RV’s, boats, pc’s and other individual home appliances and products. To qualify for relief under the State Lemon Law and the federal Lemon Law, you need to have a consumer good that has encountered multiple repair attempts within the manufacturer’s factory warranty period. Lemon Law settlements range from either a refund to a replacement good or cash compensation.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, known as the CA Lemon Law, was introduced to present relief to consumers who purchased or leased defective and problematic motor vehicles and other consumer goods. Generally, the California Lemon Law is applicable to vehicles where the authorized servicing dealerships fail to repair a defect or defects during the good’s warranty period after being provided an acceptable number of chances to do so. For eligible claims, the vehicle maker should give the purchaser his or her money back and completely pay down the outstanding loan or replace the defective vehicle with a substantially identical model.
The California Lemon Law also mandates that the manufacturer provide for the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs, if the consumer is deemed the prevailing party. This makes the law financially feasible for those who would otherwise not be capable to retain a law firm.
