California Lemon Law Resources
Navigating the waters of California Lemon Law can be a challenging venture, particularly when faced with the stress of what very well may be a lemon vehicle on your own hands. Ensuring the best outcome for your lemon law claim is a must, especially with a new vehicle that you may be paying for well into the future. That’s why we’re going to look at some resources that can be vital in putting together your case.
First and foremost, a resource you’ll need to get used to off the bat is your manufacturer’s warranty. You should keep yours in your glove department, but if you’re unable to find it, you can easily reach out to the manufacturer with your VIN number and get another copy; it may even be available online.
The next place to check would be the California Department of Consumer Affairs. The department is responsible for many of the affairs surrounding the California Lemon Law, and as such have put together information packets and trusty guides to get you started on informing yourself and determining whether or not you have a case. The even have a twenty-eight page “Lemon-Aid for Consumers” online brochure that explains the essential points on what qualifies as a lemon and how the arbitration process works for consumers.
Just as well, the Office of the Attorney General of the state of California will put out information on their website that provides an overview on Lemon Law, including items like the Car Buyer’s Bill of Rights. This is a great resource for understanding where you stand as a consumer and what you’re entitled to.
The Better Business Bureau also assembles literature on consumer rights as they relate to vehicle ownership. This includes storing documents on their site that outline the crucial Song-Beverly Act of 1970, ideal for a legal overview.
