(frequently asked questions)
haven’t I heard more about the California Lemon Law?
not drenched in media attention, the California Lemon Law is one
of the most attractive, “consumer friendly” consumer
protection laws in the nation. It is for this reason that you
should take advantage of it. The Law Offices of
William R. McGee can defend your rights and bring a swift and
fair resolution to your lemon ownership experience.
am I entitled to under the California Lemon Law?
If you financed or leased your
vehicle, you are entitled to get back your down payment (or
lease inception fee), government fees, trade-in equity, license
fees and all the monthly payments you have made up to the date
of settlement. You may also be entitled to towing
reimbursement, as well as rental car expenses you personally
paid during your warranty repair visits. The manufacturer
pays off the existing loan (or lease), you turn the
vehicle back in to the car dealership, and you get your Lemon
Law refund check. This is known as a vehicle
repurchase. In certain circumstances you may also elect to
take a replacement vehicle in lieu of a repurchase. This
is known as an exchange of collateral. Your loan
remains the same, and you simply “swap” your present vehicle
for a new one with the same equipment. Leased vehicles are
treated in the same way.
any Lemon Law action, the manufacturer is entitled to an offset
for mileage based on the odometer reading at the first time
you had your vehicle repaired for a recurring problem.
There is a specific formula for calculating this offset, which
your Lemon Law attorney will discuss with you.
