California Lemon Law Lawyers

California Lemon Law Gets Results - A Satisfied New Car OwnerAs you probably know, the California lemon law has nothing to do with the sour yellow citrus fruit.  In reality, the lemon law is a consumer protection statute enacted by the legislature in Sacramento that applies throughout this State, and which requires automobile manufactures to buyback defective cars and trucks that are still under warranty if they cannot be repaired within a reasonable number of attempts. The California lemon law (like the lemon laws in many other states) covers used cars as well as new automobiles, so long as the vehicle was sold with a warranty and the defect or mechanical problem first occurred before the warranty expired.

Do Other Rules Apply to California Vehicle Sales Other Than the California Lemon Law?

In California there are numerous statutory, tort, and other civil and administrative rules that govern the sale of new and used cars and trucks in this State.

At the Vachon Law Firm, when an expert attorney analyzes your legal rights under the California lemon law, we also check your purchase or lease documents to make sure that the car dealership complied with California’s  numerous vehicle-related consumer protection statutes.  In many cases, we point out legal violations that the vehicle owner did not even suspect, and which will entitle him or her to a complete refund of the money spent on the automobile (which is essentially the same thing as a California lemon law buyback).

Check out this site’s pages on Auto Fraud & Dealership Dirty Tricks for a description of just some of the more common legal violations the Vachon Law Firm looks for in vehicle transactions in addition to compliance with the California lemon law’s rules.
