A consumer who has purchased or leased a car or truck or other type of vehicle 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 are difficult to explain in a brief space. The information herein quickly and briefly demonstrates the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and what is generally referred to as “Lemon Law.”
CA Lemon Law and the federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) give damages for State customers of flawed vehicles and vans and also other vehicles and products including motor bikes, recreational vehicles, motorboats, computers and other individual appliances and goods. To become eligible 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 unit or cash compensation.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, known as the California Lemon Law, was passed to give relief to consumers from problematic vehicles and other consumer products. Usually, the California Lemon Law applies to motor vehicles in which the authorized service dealerships have not been able to repair the vehicle during the warranty period after being given an acceptable amount of opportunities to do so. For eligible vehicle, the vehicle maker must give the consumer his/her money back plus repay the outstanding loan amount or exchange the vehicle with a similar model.
The California Lemon Law also mandates that the vehicle maker cover the consumer’s lawyer’s fees and costs, if the consumer has a meritorious claim. This makes the laws economically feasible for those who would otherwise not be able to retain a law firm.
