Our California lemon law attorney at Shainfeld Law has been ensuring our residents’ consumer rights are protected by pursuing justice for our clients for nearly 15 years.
When our California residents purchase or lease a vehicle that is under a manufacturer’s warranty, it is important for the buyer to know what that warranty covers before and during a California Lemon Law claim, so they are aware of their rights.
If you bought or leased a vehicle that is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and it has experienced mechanical defects that could not be fixed by the dealership or another certified mechanic after a qualifying number of reasonable vehicle repair attempts, your warranty will be the key to pursuing compensation for the vehicle’s failures.
Does My Manufacturer’s Warranty Contain Lemon Law Provisions?
Thanks to the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, there is a specific lemon law provision in California vehicle warranties that require that during the sale process, the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer assumes the responsibility for maintaining the performance and structure of the vehicle.
A manufacturer’s warranty is a written guarantee of the reliability of the vehicle, and its responsibility for repairing or replacing defective parts.
When they cannot fulfill that guarantee, they agree to fully compensate the buyer for the vehicle’s defects.
Under the California Lemon Law, a written car warranty is a contractual agreement between a consumer and a manufacturer that guarantees the car parts, materials used during manufacturing, and workmanship are free from defects for the length of the coverage.
The warranty will clearly define, in writing, the responsibilities of the manufacturer for refunding, repairing, or replacing the motor vehicle when it does not conform to the protection outlined in the warranty.
