Lemon laws cover the sale of faulty motor vehicles, also known as “lemons” and make it easier for consumers to get refunds or replacements of faulty cars and trucks. Lemon laws specify the definition of a “lemon” and state what must be done to rectify the situation. Often the law will require that the manufacturer pay off the outstanding loan balance or replace the car or other product with a comparable model. There is a provision that allows the manufacturer an “offset” for your use of the car. California Lemon Law requires that the manufacturer of a car or other product pay for the consumer’s hourly attorneys fees, as well.
