A consumer 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.”
State Lemon Laws as well as federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) offer compensation for consumers of flawed vehicles and other consumer products such as motorcycles, RV’s, motorboats, laptop or computer systems along with consumer home appliances and goods. To beeligible under the State Lemon Law and the federal Lemon Law, you need to have an item that endured numerous service attempts under the manufacturer’s factory warranty. Lemon Law damages include reimbursement, replacement good or cash compensation.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, commonly referred to as the CA Lemon Law, was passed in order to provide relief to consumers who purchased or leased problematic autos and other consumer goods. Typically, the California Lemon Law pertains to autos and other vehicles when the authorized service providers and dealerships are not able to repair the consumer good during the warranty period after being given an acceptable number of repair opportunities. For eligible claims involving car, trucks and other vehicles and consumer goods, the manufacturer should give the consumer his or her money back, pay down the remaining loan or substitute the consumer good with one that is substantially similar.
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.
