A consumer who has purchased or leased a car possesses a number of protections under both state as well as federal laws in case the car does not operate as it should while under the manufacturer’s warranty. Warranty legislation is often challenging, and can be difficult to explain comprehensively in a brief space. The information below provides some basic information regarding the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, namely, what is popularly referred to as “Lemon Law.”
State Lemon Laws as well as federal Lemon Law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) provide remedies and relief for consumers of malfunctioning vehicles and other consumer products such as motorbikes, RV’s, boats, computers and other individual appliances and goods. To meet the requirements within the California Lemon Law or the federal Lemon Law, it is essential to have a consumer product which experienced multiple repair attempts within the manufacturer’s factory warranty. Lemon Law settlements range from a refund to a replacement good or cash compensation.
California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, commonly referred to as the California Lemon Law, was enacted in order to provide relief to purchasers from problematic consumer vehicles and other consumer goods. Commonly, the California Lemon Law pertains to cars, trucks 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.
If the consumer is the prevailing party, the California Lemon Law requires the manufacturer to pay for the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs. This makes the lemon laws financially feasible for those who would otherwise not be able to retain a lawyer.
