Lemon Law Attorneys in Rancho Cucamonga
Protecting Auto Dealerships from Civil Litigation
Running any type of business leaves you susceptible to serious legal matters that could result in a civil litigation lawsuit. If you are the owner of an auto dealership, one of the legal matters that may come up is Lemon Law cases. The Lemon Law, also referred to as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, in California is designed to protect consumers who buy or lease a new automobile. It requires manufacturers or auto dealerships to meet the terms of a warranty if they are unable to service or repair the vehicle after a number of reasonable attempts.
If they are unable to, the consumer must be given a replacement vehicle or the purchase price, including price paid for manufacturer-installed additions.
The consumer can accept a replacement or refund consisting of the following:
- Sales or use tax
- Official fees
- Incidental damages
- Finance charges
- Rental car fees
The Lemon Law only applies if issues impair the value, safety, or even use of the vehicle if they arise within the first 18 months or 18,000 miles. If you own an auto dealership and are facing this kind of civil litigation, our Rancho Cucamonga Lemon Law lawyers at Chung & Ignacio, LLP may be able to help you protect your best interests.
