Braff Injury Law Offices
The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, or California’s Lemon Law, allows consumers to ask for replacement of a defective product, or reimbursement of the purchase price of a product, if it cannot be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is the federal ‘Lemon law’ which is like the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act. Either of the two versions of the Lemon law can be applied in most cases. However, the Song-Beverly Act provides more protection to the consumers than the Magnuson-Moss Act.
The Lemon Law Benefits Consumers
Under the ‘Lemon law’, a consumer can ask for replacement of a defective product or reimbursement of a product’s purchase price if the manufacturer or authorized dealer cannot repair the defect despite a reasonable number of attempts.
If you have purchased a defective vehicle, then a manufacturer is entitled to an offset for its use up until the first time when a vehicle is brought to the manufacturer or an authorized dealer for an un-repairable defect. However, it is not unlikely for the auto-manufacturing companies to negotiate larger offsets with the consumers even though it is unlawful under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act. Therefore, it is prudent to consult with a Lemon law attorney in Union City at the Braff Injury Law Offices if you want to recover sufficient compensation for your losses.
