With the holidays in full swing, you might be hoping that you’ll be gifted something that is absolutely perfect. Perhaps something with four wheels, dual overhead cam, and the growl of a V8?
If you are one of the many Americans that will receive a vehicle as a present this year, count yourself lucky, but also ensure that you can count yourself safe!
Any vehicle, new or used, may arrive looking beautiful, but have secrets hidden under the hood. In the state of California, there are laws in place to protect you if you end up with a vehicle that has problems that were present before the vehicle was even purchased: lemon laws.
At the Law Office of Howard D. Silver, our attorney is an expert in dealing with lemon law cases. He has decades of experience in helping members of the Los Angeles and San Bernardino areas seek compensation and retribution after they were sold a lemon.
How Do I Know if I Purchased a Lemon in California?
There are many regulations in place to help you know if you ended up with a lemon in the state of California, but the main points are the following:
- There must have been at least 2 unsuccessful attempts by a licensed mechanic to fix the same problem with your vehicle
- Either the manufacturer or dealer that supplied you with the vehicle must unsuccessfully try to remedy the same issue at least 4 times
- Your vehicle must have been unusable for at least 30 days because of these warranty-related repairs or repair attempts
