California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, typically called the CA Lemon Law, was passed to present relief to consumers of troublesome automobiles and other consumer goods. Typically, the California Lemon Law applies to vehicles which the authorized servicing dealerships are incapable of repairing within the warranty period after being provided a reasonable range of opportunities to repair the vehicle. For qualifying claims, the vehicle manufacturer should give the consumer his / her money back plus completely pay down the outstanding loan amount owed or substitute the auto with a similar model.
The California Lemon Law additionally mandates that the automobile manufacturer cover the cost of the customer’s lawyer’s fees and costs if the customer is the prevailing party. This makes the laws financially practical for those who may otherwise not be in a position to retain the services of an attorney.
