Purchasing a commercial vehicle is a great investment that comes with great responsibility. You want to ensure that your trailer, limousine, or taxi is in perfect driving condition, as it’s necessary to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of others on the road. If you find that your commercial vehicle is exhibiting defects or is malfunctioning, and your vehicle has had numerous attempted repairs under the manufacturer’s warranty, then you may be eligible for a buy-back under the California Lemon Law.
While the Song-Beverly Act states that the California Lemon Law only applies to vehicles used for “personal, family, or household purposes”; however, the law also applies to commercial or business vehicles. Under the manufacturer’s warranty, the California Lemon Law covers vehicles as long as:
- The business that owns the commercial vehicle has no more than five vehicles registered under its name.
- The commercial vehicle’s “gross vehicle weight” is less than 10,000 pounds.
