LEMON LAW


THE SONG BEVERLY CONSUMER WARRANTY ACT
Under the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, also known as California lemon law, a new car is presumed to be a lemon if the manufacturer had a reasonable amount of attempts to repair the issue but failed to do so. What is reasonable? Well, if the vehicle's defective issues began 18 months or 18,000 miles after purchase (whichever comes first), then reasonable is presumed when 4 or more repair attempts have been made. If the defect can cause severe injury or death, at least 2 attempts is presumed reasonable. Additionally, if the vehicle has been in the repair shop for 30 days or more, that will also trigger the reasonable repair presumption.  
ATTORNEYS' FEES PAID BY MANUFACTURER AND NOT CLIENT
The California Lemon Law includes an attorney's fees provision which allows us to collect our hourly attorneys' fees and court costs from the automobile manufacturer at the successful resolution of the claim. This makes pursuing lemon law claim economically feasible for those who would otherwise not be in a position to hire an attorney.
