Any purchaser or a lessee of any motor vehicle possesses a number of legal rights under both state as well as federal laws in the event that the vehicle does not perform as presented under an express warranty. Warranty laws are often intricate, and are difficult to thoroughly explain in a limited space. The below statements briefly mention the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, what are commonly referred to as “Lemon Laws.”
CA Lemon Law and the Federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) provide compensation for CA and other state consumers of flawed autos, trucks and other motor vehicles and products including motor bikes, RV’s, motorboats, computers and other individual appliances and products. To meet the requirements within the CA Lemon Law and the federal Lemon Law, it is essential to provide the manufacturer with a reasonable number of repair attempts to fix the nonconformity with the vehicle during the warranty period. Lemon Law compensation may include a reimbursement, replacement unit or perhaps money payment.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, typically called the California Lemon Law, was passed to provide relief to buyers and lessess from problematic autos and other problematic consumer goods. Normally, the California Lemon Law is applicable to vehicles which the dealerships have been unable to repair during the warranty period after being given a reasonable amount of chances. For qualifying vehicles, the vehicle maker must give the buyer his / her money back plus pay the balance of the outstanding loan or substitute the vehicle with an equivalent one.
The California Lemon Law additionally requires that the manufacturer pay for the consumer’s lawyer’s fees and expenses, on a meritorious claim. This makes the law financially feasible for individuals who may otherwise not be in a position to hire an attorney.
