What Is California’s Lemon Law?

Are you familiar with California’s lemon law? Officially called the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (SBCWA), California’s lemon law has protected Pasadena residents since 1970. The vehicles considered eligible under this law include:

●        Cars

●        Trucks

●        Crossovers

●        SUVs

●        Motorcycles

●        Boats

●        Vans

●        Scooters

●        RVs

●        Motorhomes

●        Watercraft

What Are the Legal Requirements of the Lemon Law in California?

California’s lemon law has several terms that you must meet to make a valid claim for your new, used, or leased car:

●        Your motor vehicle has one or more issues that impair its function

●        The issues pose a considerable threat to your personal safety while driving the vehicle

●        The issues reduce your vehicle’s resale value significantly

●        You have sent the vehicle for repair to a qualified dealership or mechanic, but they were unable to address and fix the issue within a reasonable number of repair attempts

●        The manufacturer’s original warranty was valid during at least one of the repair attempts or is still currently valid

You may have noticed that we just said a “reasonable number of repair attempts,” which is a fairly ambiguous term. California law states that even if you only bring your car to the dealership or mechanic twice, you can qualify as long as one of those times was while your vehicle was still under warranty.

Also, the dealer must be able to fix the problem in a certain number of days. If your vehicle was in the shop for at least 30 days (consecutive or otherwise), the law may “presume” that your car is a lemon.

To make a valid claim, you must start the process within four years of the expiration of your vehicle’s warranty. If you have already sold or junked the car, you can still qualify, but you’ll need clear documentation of the repair issues and how much money you lost trying to fix them.

What Kind of Compensation Can a Pasadena Lemon Law Attorney Seek on Your Behalf?

If you have a valid claim under California’s lemon law and you win your case, you can receive compensation from your vehicle manufacturer for your losses. Potential reimbursements include a cash refund, buyback, or a replacement vehicle.

However, if you don’t have the help of a lemon law attorney in Pasadena, you could have trouble recouping your losses, financial and otherwise. Here are some of the different forms of reimbursement you could receive with the help of qualified lemon law attorneys:

●        Vehicle replacement costs

●        Loss of vehicle use

●        Original down payment

●        Taxes and registration fees

●        Monthly payments

●        Loss of time spent repairing the vehicle

●        Incidental expenses, like rentals or tows

●        Attorney’s fees
