How Does the Lemon
Law Work in
A Compassionate Team to Uphold Your Consumer Rights
When you make a purchase of any kind, there exist certain expectations as to what you will receive. Manufacturers, dealers, and retailers are legally required to maintain certain standards of quality when selling products, which is
often spelled out in a warranty given to the consumer at the time of purchase. When buying a vehicle in particular – from cars and trucks to ATVs and personal watercraft – you want to make sure it is functional and safe.
What Qualifies for Lemon Law?
If you purchased a product that fails to meet quality standards or that endangers you due to a defect, you may be protected by Lemon Law, which can compensate you for damages and losses. Even after many attempts of repairs and within
manufacturer’s warranty you may be protected by the Lemon Law.
If your vehicle is deemed a lemon, you may receive compensation for:
- Your down payment
- Any monthly payments you have made
- The balance of your loan (or all remaining lease payments if you are leasing)
- Collateral expenses such as sales tax, finance charges, vehicle registration charges, repair costs, and service contracts
- Temporary rental car expenses
- Tow truck fees
Lemon owners often must choose between getting a replacement vehicle and being reimbursed for how much the car is worth. If you choose to replace your vehicle, the replacement must be a near match for the old one at the time of purchase
and must include the same service contract and the same specifications. Our Los Angeles Lemon Law attorneys know how challenging the choices throughout your claim may be, so we take care to help you understand your options and make
Pursuing Civil Penalties
If the manufacturer is not repurchasing or replacing a vehicle you believe is a lemon, reach out to our team at Sage Law Group LLP and we can file a legal motion that they willfully failed to comply with the request. In the event that

requirements of establishing a vehicle as a lemon can be extremely confusing. It often takes an experienced Lemon Law attorney to prove eligibility, calculate the price of a fair buy back or reimbursement, and fight for compensation for
all relevant damages and expenses.
