Long Beach Lemon Law Attorney

Have you lost countless dollars and days trying to fix a vehicle that just won’t work? If so, your car might be considered a “lemon” under the California Lemon Law. Formally known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, the Lemon Law protects you from costly expenses associated with faulty or malfunctioning vehicles.

Johnson & Buxton’s team of skilled attorneys in Long Beach, CA, focuses only on Lemon Law cases. After spending years defending manufacturers from these kinds of cases, we have taken that experience and turned the tables. Now, we work for you. The Lemon Law Guys know all of the ins and outs of lemon legality, and we know exactly what it takes to get you properly compensated.

Getting a New Car with California’s Lemon Law

When approaching your Lemon Law case, you can ask the manufacturer to cover your costs and losses by buying back your vehicle or seek to have the manufacturer provide you with a replacement for the faulty vehicle. Suppose you decide that you’d like your manufacturer to provide you with a new car. In that case, California’s Lemon Law stipulates that the new car be identical to your previous vehicle.

The new vehicle should also come with a new warranty, just as if you had just purchased it. The existing contract from your malfunctioning car will have no impact on the replacement vehicle. The Lemon Law also covers all fees associated with the replacement vehicle, including taxes, license fees, and registration fees.

In addition to a replacement vehicle, you may receive reimbursement for repair costs, towing services, and any other expenses that you took on due to your car or truck not working. Our team is well versed in cases against all major vehicle manufacturers, including General Motors, GMC, Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Tesla, and more. If you have severe issues with your car or truck, don’t hesitate to contact The Lemon Law Guys for your free consultation. Give us a call at 805-870-8449 to get started.
