Commercial Use of Products

Commercial Use of Products

Both private individuals and businesses need cars, trucks and other expensive items—and they need them to work properly. If they don't work, compensation and other remedies are due.

The California Lemon Law provides protection to people throughout the state, while the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is a federal statute that provides protection to consumers nationwide. California's law has been amended to protect small businesses stuck with defective products.

Who Is Protected?

Small businesses with five or fewer vehicles registered to the business are covered. In addition to this limitation, the vehicle may be "primarily" used for business rather than personal use. Tractor-trailers, and agricultural machinery and other vehicles weighing more than 10,000 lbs., are excluded. The law is intended to protect small businesses only. Leased vehicles as well as those purchased are covered.

A manufacturer may try to tell you that you must make X-number of attempts to remedy the problem, or try to tell you that you can only use arbitration to resolve the case. They may try to tell you what your rights are with respect to their defective product -- don't believe them. Call a lawyer at the Law Offices of Michael S. Humphries.
