What Is the California Lemon Law?
The California Lemon Law (Civ. Code, § 1793.2 et seq.) is a civil code, and it protects you when you buy a vehicle that turns out to be defective. If you buy a car that has a manufacturer’s defect and the car is still under warranty, then you can get it repaired or replaced under the California Lemon Laws. That means that the car needs to be identified as a “lemon” and needs to be repaired. The manufacturer only has a reasonable number of chances to repair your vehicle.
In the event that the car cannot be repaired after a “reasonable” number of attempts to fix the outstanding defects, then the manufacturer will be responsible to buy back the vehicle from you, and replace it with another similar make and model car. If you choose to have a refund of your money that you paid for the vehicle, the manufacturer will have to reimburse you, if it is not possible for the defect to be fixed on your car. Sometimes these laws may seem clear cut, but there can be interpretations that might be confusing for some people. If this is the case for you, all that you need to do is to give us a call today, and we can review a winning strategy with you. For that reason, we are ready to talk to you now, all that you need to do is to pick up the phone today and call us on this issue.
If I Have a Few Months Before My Lease Is Over – CA LAW – What Can I Do?
A lemon vehicle is a car, truck or any type of vehicle that has a manufacturer’s defect. Under the California Lemon Law, a leased vehicle is still covered under these applicable laws for defective vehicles. If you have bought or purchased a leased car or truck, then the manufacturer has to repair or fix the defect for you.
This is because when you bought your car, you did not expect that it was going to have a defect in it right off the bat. But because it does have a defect, you don’t have to sit with that defect forever and suffer in silence. You have a right to have a car that is not defective, and you have a right to have it fixed or replaced by the manufacturer if they are unable to fix the defective issue in a reasonable amount of time.
How Late in My Lease Can I Lemon a Car?
You can lemon a car at any time during your lease. The amount of time during the lease that you own the car and are driving it around, is not going to be directly related to the applicability of you being able to recover under the Lemon Laws. For example, you can have had a lease for one day or one month, several weeks or several months, and your car will still be able to recover under the California Lemon Laws.
What matters is not that you have a lease, it paid off or not, or whether you bought your car outright and paid for it in all cash or not. The pertinent point is that your car is still under the original manufacturer’s warranty, and being under that warranty, the car as new should not have had any overt or covert defects. This does make sense, as if a car is well-made (which they all should be, shouldn’t they?) then as a new car off the car lot, why would it be sold to you with a defect? If a car is defective, then it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to tighten down their quality control, right? For this reason, you will have recourse under the California Lemon Laws, if your vehicle is defective as a new vehicle bought or leased from the car dealership.
Common Types of Defects That Can Occur on a New Vehicle
There are many different types of defects that can occur on a new vehicle. It is difficult to believe that a brand-new vehicle can have a defect in it. These defects can be serious enough that they can affect the overall safety of driving the vehicle.
