How the Lemon Law Works in California
If you have a car, you need to know how the lemon law works in California. With the lemon law, it is common for people to get compensation for their car problems.
In general, the way California lemon law works is when a vehicle or appliance is defective, the vehicle manufacturer can sometimes buy back the vehicle and pay the customer a refund. This is called a buyback of the lemon law.
The way it works is that California lemon law can work for both used and new cars if they meet some important requirements. In this article, I will explain super important information that I think will benefit you.
Basic Laws of the California Lemon Law
I’m the attorney Jimmy Hanaie. I’ve been a lawyer since 2013. I went to college at UCLA and went to UC Hastings Law School. I have been a lawyer for many people who have had lemon law cases. In this post I will explain how lemon law works in California.
People start thinking about the lemon law when their car has problems. However, it is always a good idea to know your legal rights. They say that knowledge is power.
If you have a used car or a new car that is having problems, I will discuss the important basics on how lemon law works for my readers. Actually, it has nothing to do with lemons.
What Is Considered The California Lemon Law
Instead, it has everything to do with faulty cars and getting compensation by returning the vehicle to the manufacturer. The process is generally called a “lemon law buyback” and works much the same way as a refund.
The way California lemon law works is that attorneys negotiate with automakers whether the client’s car should be considered a lemon law vehicle. The facts and scenarios of your car’s situation are a big part of the answer to this question.
We examine your repair bills and vehicle contract as well. These documents provide a lot of useful information about your car’s problems.
How do I file a lawsuit
The worse your car problems are, the better the case of lemon law. For example, if they changed their engine, it’s a great repair.
However, little car problems can sometimes help you qualify for the lemon law too. Usually you will need more repairs when your car problems are not dangerous.
If the repair shop had your car for 30 days or more, one repair visit may be enough for a lemon law case. If your car was not in the shop for so many days, it will need 2 or 3 or 4 or more repairs.
How does California lemon law compensation work?
Typically, when people win a lemon law case for a car, a large part of the amount of money they actually paid for the car so far is returned to them.
This can usually include a refund of most of your down payment, your monthly payments, and other costs you paid. This can add up to a lot of money.
Each case is different. In some cases, you can continue with your vehicle contract, but they could pay you some money for the problems you had. They call this “cash and keep.”
