Myths 20back

You think you know, but you have no idea. Learn the truth about Lemon Law.

A lot of people, including attorneys, don't know much about lemon law. They may have heard some things about it. But usually what people have heard is not correct. There are lots of myths about lemon law and your rights. Contact TheLemonLawyer.com for free at 1-844-CAR-PROBS and let us tell you the truth about lemon law.

My car has to have serious problems in order to be a lemon?
Wrong! California's Lemon Law applies to all problems. Big or small. Major or minor. If your brakes don't work, for example, the law will apply. Also, if your window doesn't work right, you can also apply.

The lemon law won't help me because I bought a new car, not a used one?
No way! New cars are fully protected. Lots of people think that a lemon is a broken car that's bought from a dishonest used car dealer. But that's not the case. California's lemon law covers all types of motor vehicles sold with a manufacturer's warranty in California. This includes vehicles that are new or used, purchased or leased.

My car has to be in service a lot in order to be a lemon?
No it doesn't! Your car is expected to work. The law says you have to give the dealer a reasonable number of attempts to fix the problem. If they can't fix it, you have a lemon. Usually, you have to give the dealer four (4) chances at repair. But if the problem is major or affects the safety of the car, you only need to give the dealer two (2) chances to fix the problem. Or if your car has been in service more than 30 days due to any number of problems, that could qualify your car as a lemon.

Even if my car has problems, I can't return it. It's a car not a shirt from Macy's.
Not true! Cars come with warranties and you have rights. If you have a lemon, under California Lemon Law you can get all your money back from the manufacturer. ALL YOUR MONEY. This includes your down payment, all monthly payments and the balance of the loan to pay off the vehicle. The only deduction that may be taken from this amount is a “usage offset” which is the cost based on the miles you drove the car before you first took it to the dealership for repair.

Even if I have a Lemon, I can't afford a lawyer.
Yes you can. The California Lemon Law says your car manufacturer must pay attorney's fees if your car is determined to be a lemon. At the TheLemonLawyer.com, we will seek to get our fees paid by the manufacturer. If you have a lemon, we will demand that the manufacturer take back your car and give you a full refund. If they don't, we can represent you and file a lawsuit on your behalf against the manufacturer and we will push the manufacturer to settle your case so you won't have to go to court. As a standard procedure, the settlement reached in your case will contribute to paying attorney fees.
