California Lemon Law

Los Angeles, California Lemon Law Attorney

Have You Purchased a Lemon?

California Lemon Law applies to more than just new cars. It can also apply to new or used motor homes, motorcycles, boats, trailers, and other such products sold with express warranties or service contracts. If you have bought something that does not function properly, you have rights as a consumer. At the Law Office of Michael S. Humphries, our job is to make certain those rights are upheld.

In many cases, contact with the manufacturer of the defective product will result in misinformation. For example, you may be told that, for the California Lemon Law to work on your behalf, you were required to complete a certain number of repair attempts within a very short amount of time. However, the actual statute does not require a specific number of repair attempts.

In fact, the Lemon Law, or Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, requires an automobile manufacturer to promptly replace or repurchase a motor vehicle with a substantial problem that has not been repaired by the dealership to conform to the manufacturer's express warranty after a reasonable number of repair attempts.

California Civil Code Section 1793.2(d)(2):

If the manufacturer or its representative in this state is unable to service or repair a new motor vehicle, as that term is defined in paragraph (2) of subdivision (e) of Section 1793.22, to conform to the applicable express warranties after a reasonable number of attempts, the manufacturer shall either promptly replace the new motor vehicle in accordance with subparagraph (A) or promptly make restitution to the buyer in accordance with subparagraph (B). However, the buyer shall be free to elect restitution in lieu of replacement, and in no event shall the buyer be required by the manufacturer to accept a replacement vehicle.

When you choose the Law Office of Michael S. Humphries to represent you, we will work hard to make certain the manufacturer of the defective product provides you with full compensation. We are not interested in unfair settlements, and will fight to get you the proper settlement to which you are permitted under the California Lemon Law, including a replacement or full refund and additional payments for the costs you have incurred along the way.

Whether you have been the victim of dealer fraud, or you have just received a bad product, we can help. Contact an experienced Lemon Law attorney at 562-375-0545.

We are available to assist clients in Bellflower and throughout California, including Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Sacramento and Riverside.
