Southern California is one of the most dangerous places to drive in the United States. The state accounts for the second-highest number of traffic-related fatalities in the country, just behind Texas.
There is simply no room on the crowded roads for faulty vehicles. No one wants to wind up behind the wheel of a shoddy vehicle – but there are laws to protect you if you find yourself in that situation.
California lemon law, also known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, was created in the 1970s to protect buyers of both new and used vehicles from manufacturer defects.
These factors indicate if manufacturer mistakes entitle you to compensation under lemon law in California:
The vehicle manufacturer has made at least two or more attempts to repair a warranty-covered defect; or
The vehicle has been out of service for more than 30 days while being repaired for warranty-covered problems; and
The vehicle has several warranty-covered problems, which were not caused by driver abuse of the vehicle and that impair its use, value, or safety.
In accordance with the California lemon law time limit, the defect must occur within the originally stated warranty period.
A common misconception is that the problem should occur within the first 18 months after purchase or before the odometer reaches 18,000 miles. This is not true. However, if your problems do occur within the first 18 month/18,000 miles, your vehicle will most likely be presumed a “lemon” automatically.
When your vehicle meets California lemon law requirements, you’re entitled to:
Manufacturer coverage of all attorney fees and court costs
A full refund of the vehicle’s original acquisition price
A replacement vehicle if necessary
