The buyer or lessee of a car has various legal rights under both state and federal legislation in the event that the car does not operate as provided under the express manufacturer’s warranty. Warranty legislation is specialized, and difficult to describe adequately  inside a limited space. The comments below quickly and briefly detail the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, what is commonly referred to as “Lemon Law.”

CA Lemon Law and the federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) offer compensation for purchasers and lessees of defective vehicles, cars,  vans and also other motor vehicles and products including motorbikes, recreational vehicles, motorboats, computers and various consumer appliances and merchandise. To meet the criteria per the State Lemon Law or the federal Lemon Law, you need to have a product that encountered several service efforts within the manufacturer’s factory warranty. Lemon Law damages can include a refund, replacement or even cash settlement.

California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, known as the CA Lemon Law, was put into law in order to give relief to buyers/lessees with troublesome vehicles and other consumer goods. Typically, the California Lemon Law applies to vehicles which the dealerships are not able to repair during the warranty period after being given a reasonable amount of chances to do so. For qualifying vehicles, the vehicle manufacturer needs to give the consumer her or his money back and pay the balance of the outstanding loan or exchange the consumer good with a similar model.

The California Lemon Law also mandates that the manufacturer  cover the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs, on a meritorious claim. This makes the law financially easy for people who may otherwise not be able to hire a law firm.
