The Lemon Law in California provides a number of protections for vehicle consumers. The law may be applied to cases in which the manufacturer of a defective vehicle is unable to correct the defect in the car after a few attempts. Individuals may use then Lemon Law to seek financial damages from the manufacturer. There are multiple ways the manufacturer can pay restitution if the individuals win their Lemon Law case. One of the most common ways vehicle manufacturers provide compensation is by repurchasing, or buying back, the vehicle.
