California Lemon Law Attorney

Buying a new car is a big event in most people’s lives. The pride of ownership, comfort and dependability of a new car makes the investment worth every penny. But too often, California consumers experience issues with their brand new vehicles that make it feel more like they bought a used car.

Mr. Johnson represents consumers whose new vehicles are defective and fall under the protection of California Lemon Laws including The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (beginning with Civil Code section 1790). Under this law, consumers who lease or buy new motor vehicles under warranty that are defective have options available to them to have the vehicle replaced or their money refunded. The car’s owner must have made repeated attempts to get the vehicle repaired.

The number of repair attempts is not absolute. It depends on how serious the defect is and series safety concerns are taken into consideration.

The law also applies to used cars that are sold with certified dealer warranties and portions of their vehicle may still be covered under the original new car warranty.

Every case has a unique set of circumstances and facts and it’s best to consult a California Lemon Law Attorney to see if you have a case. Call for a FREE CASE EVALUATION!
