San Diego Lemon Law Attorneys at Young & Young APC Will Protect Your Consumer Rights
California’s lemon law is considered to be one of the most effective lemon laws in the nation. The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty act, also known as the California lemon law, protects San Diego residents that have purchased or leased a new or used vehicle within the manufacturer’s original warranty period. To qualify for a California lemon law claim a vehicle must have a defect or “nonconformity” which substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. In California, the lemon law requires a manufacturer to promptly repurchase or replace a vehicle when the dealership is unable to repair it after a “reasonable” number of repair attempts or within a reasonable amount of time. Unlike to other states, California does not require a specific number of repair attempts before a consumer can file a lemon law claim. If your vehicle qualifies under the California lemon law, you may be entitled to receive a repurchase or replacement vehicle.
What Counts as a Reasonable Number of Repair Attempts Under the California Lemon Law?
The California lemon law does not state a required number of repair attempts. A “reasonable” number of repair attempts is determined on a case-by-case basis in relation to the type of the vehicle’s defect. For safety-related defects, this could mean as few as two repair opportunities at the manufacturer’s authorized repair facility. This requirement may also be satisfied if the vehicle is in the repair facility for a cumulative total of over 30 days for repair (not necessarily all at one time).
You are Not Restricted to Pursuing a Claim Within the First 18 Months or 18,000 Miles of Use.
You may still pursue a California lemon law claim after the first 18 months or 18,000 miles of use. The lemon law includes a rebuttable presumption that a vehicle qualifies if it is presented for a reasonable opportunity to repair within this period. However, you may still pursue a lemon law claim even if your warranty repairs were performed outside of this presumption period. In fact, most successful lemon law cases involve vehicle repair attempts that occur after the first 18 months or 18,000 miles of use.
California’s Lemon Law Applies to New or Used, Purchased, Financed, and Leased Vehicles
California’s Lemon Law does not limit claims to newly purchased vehicles. The California lemon law applies to new and used vehicles. Similarly, you can also pursue a California lemon law claim if your vehicle is financed, leased, or purchased outright.
What Remedies Are Available if My Car Qualifies as a Lemon?
If you have been sold a “lemon” vehicle, you are entitled to compensation through the California lemon law. Under the California lemon law, you may be entitled to one of the following: a refund of all amounts paid or payable for the purchase or lease of your vehicle (less a statutory mileage offset or “good use” credit for miles driven before the first repair attempt); a replacement vehicle of the same MSRP value as your defective vehicle; or a cash settlement.
It Costs Nothing Out of Pocket to Hire Our Firm to Represent You
Unlike other firms, Young & Young APC does not charge any retainer fees or contingency fees. Under the California lemon law, your attorney’s fees and cost are paid by the manufacturer and dealer defendants. This provision of the California lemon law makes it economically possible for consumers to pursue a lemon law claim regardless of fees and cost.
