How Lemon Law Works
Under both state and federal law, a purchaser or lessee of a car has various legal rights 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 manufactures 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:
- The car has been in the repair shop for a cumulative total of thirty or more days in the first eighteen (18) months or 18,000 miles, or
- The automobile dealer was unable to repair a serious safety problem after two or more attempts, or
- The car 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 an knowledgeable consumer rights attorney for legal advice about your vehicle’s issues.
