FEDERAL LEMON LAW
The Federal Lemon Law act requires that the manufacturers of Cars, Trucks, SUVs, Boats, Motor Homes, RVs, Motorcycles and all other products sold in the United States (intended primarily for consumer-type use and that cost more than $25.00) to provide consumers with detailed information about warranty coverage. As a federal law, The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act also makes it easier for consumers to sue for breach of warranty and allows the consumers to recover court costs and reasonable attorney fees should they win.
CALIFORNIA LEMON LAW
The California Lemon Law (Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act) protects consumers from being stuck with a defective vehicle if, under the original warranty, a manufacturer extended warranty (Certified Vehicles,) or a dealer warranty, the manufacturer or dealership cannot repair a defect or malfunction that substantially affects the vehicle's use, value or safety within a reasonable number of repair attempts. The law requires the manufacturer to either repurchase or replace the vehicle and may entitle you to additional court approved penalties or damages depending on your case. You may also be entitled for a reimbursement of all other out-of-pocket vehicle expenses, repairs, license fees, DMV fees, tow fees, car rental fees, loan interest, attorney's fees and all other related expenses.
