California’s lemon law is officially titled the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act. If you bought or leased your vehicle in California, this law offers broad protection to you as the consumer.
However, our lawyers have also helped clients with vehicles purchased out of state under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Enacted in 1975, this federal law protects consumer product warranties.
Both laws hold car manufacturers accountable to their written warranties. Both provide a manufacturer with a reasonable opportunity to remedy the defect. In California, that reasonableness standard is satisfied after as few as two attempted repairs for a vehicle defect. The standard may also be also satisfied if a dealership takes a car out of service for more than 30 days, consecutive or not.
