Determine If Your Used Car Purchase Qualifies for Lemon Law Protections We're Here to Help Fight for Your Consumer Rights

Used-Car Lemons

In the state of California, lemon laws are in place to protect buyers of both new and used vehicles. If you have recently purchased or leased an unreliable used car that has been returned for a warranty repair a multitude of times, you may be entitled to a buyback or replacement. Used-car lemon cases can be difficult and typically require an experienced California lemon law attorney.

At Norman Taylor & Associates, we've been helping buyers of lemons obtain refunds or replacements for more than 30 years. We offer a free case evaluation to begin preparing a strong strategy to protect your rights.

Not All Lemons Are Yellow

In 2013, consumers who purchase their used vehicle at a "buy here, pay here" dealership in California will receive an added level of protection against used-car lemons. This kind of dealership specializes in older, high-mileage cars to provide mobilization to consumers who cannot qualify for a typical car loan.

The new law requires dealerships to issue a 30-day / 1,000-mile warranty for the used vehicle that is leased or sold. Under this warranty, consumers are given added protection under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act requires manufacturers and sellers to provide customers with detailed information regarding their warranty coverage.

Do you have a lemon?

You may be entitled to a replacement or refund if you have purchased or leased a used-car lemon, as long as your vehicle meets the following qualifications:

  • The car was sold with a warranty
  • The car has been in for repair repeatedly for the same defect
  • Or the car has been in for repair for an excessive number of days
  • The car has a substantial defect

If you have a lemon, you can read the book Norman Taylor wrote on lemon law and then speak with a California used-car lemon law lawyer from our firm. We have significant experience with many manufacturers and can use this insight to assist you with your case.
