Consumers in California are lucky to have legal rights and protections put in place by the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, also known as the California lemon law, which covers the lease or purchase of new motor vehicles. If a new car has chronic problems that cannot be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts, the car owner may be entitled to either a refund or a new vehicle. Unfortunately, many California residents are not fully educated about the rights afforded under the CA lemon law.
Fortunately, the Internet provides a great resource for consumers to conduct independent research. One great resource can be found at www.carcomplaints.com. This website provides an open forum for car owners to report any issues they are having with their vehicles. Complaints are compiled by type, and the website generates summaries of common complaints, problem trends and ranks the gravity of the complaints.
Through this sort of public review process, car owners or prospective car buyers can educate themselves about problems with their vehicles with data from first-hand sources rather than filtered through various media outlets. In fact, if you are considering purchasing or leasing a new car, first review the common complaints about the model you are considering.
On the other hand, if you have already purchased a new car and are experiencing some of the same issues that appear on the complaint boards, you may be entitled to compensation under the California Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.
