Yes, your car is a lemon if the seat belts are defective in your vehicle. The seat belts keep you safe and the lap and shoulder harness can prevent a fatal injury in your vehicle, especially for the front seat driver and passengers. If your seat belts do not work in a vehicle, then it is going to be declared a lemon car. The seat belts in a car are there to help keep you safe, in the event of a car accident. If the seat belts don’t cinch you into place when there is a sudden deceleration, then you can go flying through the windshield or worse in the vehicle. Seat belts need to be functioning at all times in a car, and if they are not functioning properly, you may have a major safety issue related to that vehicle.
A seat belt in a car keeps people alive in a collision. When a person in a car crash is not wearing a seat belt, or the seat belt is defective, then it will not stop a person in an accident from getting seriously injured in the vehicle. If you have a car crash, your body is going to keep moving with the same momentum as the car is moving. Therefore, if you are on the highway traveling at 65 miles per hour and have an accident, your body is still traveling at 65 miles per hour at the moment of the crash. The seat belt is there to keep you safe and prevent you from being injured or killed during a crash. The crush zone of the car’s front end is meant to absorb the kinetic energies of the crash, but the seat belt is meant to keep you in one spot, and not flailing around in the cabin of the car during the moments of the crash and accident.

Manufacturers Are on Notice Because California Lemon Laws Are in Place for the Protection of the Consumers
The California lemon laws are there to help you, in the event that you are stuck with a new car that is a lemon vehicle. In the past before lemon laws were enacted, a car dealership could drag its feet until cows came home, and still your lemon car would not have been sufficiently repaired to your satisfaction. Your car in the past would not have even been repaired at times to minimum safety standards, and that is a huge problem in the car industry in general. But today, with the help of enforced lemon laws, the car dealership needs to repair your vehicle within 30 days, and has to repair, refund your purchase price and any other losses, damages or expenses, and treat you fairly.

Recent Victories for Bentley Owners with Mileage Mishaps on the Lemon Vehicles
Owners of Bentley lemon vehicles will get help from a case settlement in 2020 for Bentley, Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche vehicles that faked ratings for gas and mileage on the vehicles. The makers of these vehicles hoodwinked consumers and the general public, concerning the genuine viability of these vehicles and their emissions testing related to the vehicles. For this reason, a settlement is being reached to remunerate owners for the falsities related to emissions, told with respect to mileage for these vehicles, based on U.S. pollution and environmental standards.
