A Lawyer Provides Basic Facts on California’s Lemon Law to Consumers

If you are planning to buy a car in California, it helps to know about consumer’s rights in case you end up with a lemon. An experienced lawyer advises that car shoppers are further protected by the Song-Beverly Warranty Act, aside from federally recognized Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act.

The Song-Beverly Act requires the car manufacturer or its representative within the state (i.e. the dealer) to promptly replace or return the purchase price to the buyer in case that they fail to service or repair the unit to meet the terms of an express written warranty after a reasonable number of tries.

There is no clearly defined number for the term ‘reasonable number of repair attempts’. However, the law assumes that four repair attempts to fix same defect is already unreasonable. This number is reduced to two if the defect can cause serious injury or death. It’s also assumed that the reasonable number of attempts is reached if the vehicle is left for more than 30 days in a repair shop. Read more from this blog. http://bit.ly/2qPCrQl
