One of the best aromas in the world is that new car smell. But nothing sours that feeling faster than realizing you bought a lemon. If that has happened to you, you need a California Lemon Law attorney.
California’s Lemon Law
Not everything that goes wrong with a new or used car means you bought a lemon. Malfunctions can be repaired. But if the vehicle manufacturer is unable, after a reasonable number of tries, to repair or repurchase your vehicle, chances could be you bought a lemon. If that is the case, not all is lost.
The California Lemon Law covers new and used vehicles sold or leased in California that are covered by the manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty. Vehicles covered by the law include:
- Cars, pickup, SUVs, and vans.
- The chassis, chassis cab, and drivetrain of a motorhome.
- Dealer-owned vehicles and demos
- A lot of the vehicles purchased or leased chiefly for business use.
- Vehicles bought or leased for personal, family, or household purposes.
If It Looks Like a Lemon, Rides Like a Lemon, and Acts Like a Lemon, Presume It Is a Lemon
