Get Legal Help for Your Motor Vehicle’s Problems
If you have made a reasonable number of repair attempts under warranty for one or more problems that substantially impair your use, value and/or safety of your vehicle, then you may qualify for a refund, replacement or cash settlement under California Lemon Law. Even if you no longer own the vehicle, your Lemon Law rights remains intact.
Nothing is more frustrating than buying or leasing a new car, SUV, or a truck, that turns out to be a lemon. Fortunately, consumer protection statutes, also known as lemon laws, provide a remedy for people affected by defective motor vehicles. At vehicle’s owner or lessee’s option, these laws can force a manufacturer to buy back or replace the lemon vehicle.
At Strategic Legal Practices, we have helped many car owners get relief through the California Lemon Law. We helped them and we may be able to help you recover the thousands of dollars you have paid for a defective vehicle, even if it is a used car. Learn more by calling 888-SLP-LEMON (757-5366).
How Lemon Law Works
A purchaser or lessee of a motor vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle, RV, etc.) has various legal rights under both state and federal law if the vehicle does not perform as expected under the manufacturer’s express warranty. For example, the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, also known as the “California Lemon Law”, requires manufacturers to repurchase or replace vehicles that their dealers were unable to repair after a reasonable number of repair attempts. Typically, a car may be considered a “Lemon” if:
- A vehicle has been in the shop for a cumulative total of 30 or more days in the first 18 months or 18,000 miles, or
- The dealer was unable to repair a serious safety problem after two or more attempts, or
- The dealer was unable to repair any other defect after three or more attempts
It is important to note that the above conditions are not always necessary or sufficient. It is best that you speak with a knowledgeable consumer rights attorney for legal advice about your vehicle’s issues.
