Lemon Law Replacement

Under California Lemon law the manufacturer has a duty to come to you and offer a buyback if you have given them a reasonable opportunity to repair your vehicle. But what if you basically like the year make and model and just want one that works?

If you are looking at a replacement, your new vehicle must be comparable to the vehicle being replaced. Ideally, it should be substantially identical in make, model and options. http://www.normantaylor.com/blog/uncategorized/lemon-law-replacement/The manufacturer must typically pay any sales tax and registration fees on your new vehicle.

If you have a loan, you can usually do what is called a “substitution of collateral.” You keep your existing loan, existing payments, and existing interest rate, with full credit for all payments you have made so far. You simply switch the lemon vehicle for the replacement vehicle to which the loan applies.
