How Does the California Lemon Laws Apply to Problems, Leaks, Exploding Sunroof or a Sunroof that Stopped Working?
The California Lemon Laws apply to a leaking panoramic roof defect on your car’s sunroof. A sunroof is a functional component of a car. Sunroofs can be a feature of the vehicle, to let light and air into the car while you are driving and enjoying the scenery. There are three types of sunroofs:
- Tilting sunroof – glass surface lifts up and down to open and close the sunroof.
- Sliding sunroof – glass tilts backward and forward to open and close the sunroof.
- Panoramic sunroof – a large glass that covers the whole top of the car for panoramic views.
The benefits of a sunroof are that it drastically improves visibility when driving on scenic tours. A sunroof can also improve the ventilation in a vehicle to allow exhaust pollution or particulate matter to not be stale in a car. The negative pressure ventilation will allow for better fresh airflow to come inside and outside of the vehicle. Finally, a sunroof can provide a safe area of escape in the event of the car being in an accident. For example, if a car is in water or is in a crash situation where the occupants need to escape from the vehicle where the doors are inoperable, the sunroof may be a likely and safe alternative for escape in that situation.
The California Lemon Laws will apply to help you to get the needed restitution, when you have a leak in your sunroof that is a manufacturer’s defect on your car. The lemon laws are applicable to your leased or purchased vehicle, when there is a manufacturer’s defect that prevents your sunroof from operating properly. When that does occur, you may need legal assistance, to ensure that the car dealership is involved with your getting the restitution that you deserve in a lemon car claim. The lemon laws state that the car dealership is supposed to take time to try to fix your sunroof’s manufacturer’s defect. But sometimes, the car dealership repair shop is unable to fix the problem, and the sunroof still continues to leak. In that case, you may need to initiate a lawsuit, especially if the car dealership is giving you the royal runaround to get the sunroof fixed on your vehicle as a lemon car.
