Riverside Lemon Law
Lemon Law Attorneys in Riverside
Many people believe that buying a car is inevitably a gamble. If you purchase
a vehicle with seemingly endless mechanical issues, there is nothing to
do but continue making repairs and accept that you were down on your luck
when you bought it.
At Sage Law Group, LLP, our lemon law attorneys are here to tell you otherwise. The California
Lemon Law is a powerful form of consumer protection that provides legal
recourse for those who have purchased defective vehicles. As a consumer,
you have rights, and our job is to help you protect those rights and fight
for your financial wellbeing.
What Is the California Lemon Law?
Manufacturers and retailers build and sell defective products all the time.
When it comes to your vehicle, however, a defective product can be life-threatening.
Fortunately, car manufacturers and dealers are legally required to meet
a certain level of quality, and these standards are usually guaranteed
by warranty. This warranty is what allows you to return to the dealer
for cost-free repairs within a certain time frame.
The Lemon Law, however, kicks in when you have made several repair attempts
within the manufacturer’s warranty. This legislation applies to
any vehicles (new or used) that are still under the manufacturer’s
warranty, and it can cover passenger cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles,
ATVs, and even RVs.
Under the California Lemon Law, you may be entitled to compensation for
any of the following expenses:
- The down payment, subsequent monthly payments, or the balance of your loan
- Towing expenses
- Rental car expenses
- Sales tax/finance charges
- Vehicle registration fees
- Repair/service costs
If your defective vehicle is covered by the California Lemon Law, you will
choose between a replacement vehicle and reimbursement. Reimbursement
should be the fair market value of the vehicle when you initially purchased it.
When the Dealer Refuses to Comply
If you have decided to request a replacement or reimbursement, but the
dealer has not fulfilled your request, we may take your case to court.
Through skilled litigation, we can advocate for your rights and maximize
your likelihood of achieving a favorable resolution.
Under the law, the manufacturer or dealer will be required to cover your
attorney’s fees if we win in court. In other words, if we are successful,
your fees will be included in your compensation. If we aren’t successful,
you’ll owe us nothing.
