The California Lemon Law is one of the most consumer-friendly lemon laws in the US, however you still have a level of responsibility to ensuring that you can get full protection under the law. A lot of consumers think that if they purchase a faulty vehicle that they should be able to just get their money back or get the vehicle replaced, unfortunately, it is not quite that simple. When you are sold a faulty vehicle, you do have recourse but you also must make sure that you take certain steps to guarantee that recourse.
It is Liberal
California Lemon Law is a liberal, consumer friendly law. Unlike other states where you must allow the dealer/manufacturer a set number of times to make the repairs. You do have to:
* Allow a reasonable number of times for the dealer/manufacturer to make repairs
* Actively pursue recourse
* Notify the dealer of the problems when they arise
The law is on your side in California but you should:
* Keep good records
* Contact an attorney that specializes in these types of claims
Keeping good records is a must. Even with very good consumer friendly protections, you will still have to prove your case. Records can be as simple as call longs, letters, email correspondence, receipt for repairs and any witness statements. Having your ducks in a row will ensure that you are able to take full advantage of the law.
