Vehicle warranty can be important in lemon law claim

When making a purchase, especially a significant one, many California consumers want to know that they have some kind of buyer protection. Often, a warranty can provide this protection by allowing consumers to return or exchange products when certain conditions apply. For individuals buying vehicles, their warranties are of great importance.

Under federal law, manufacturers and sellers who provide written warranties must ensure that the terms of the warranties are clear to the consumers. This law is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and applies to consumer products not sold for resale and not those for commercial purposes. The act also requires that a warranty meets certain stipulations, such as designating the warranty as either full or limited, stating information about the coverage in an easily readable document, and ensuring the availability of the warranty where the product is sold.

A manufacturer or seller cannot include any deceptive warranty terms in the document. Deceptive terms could include those that make it appear as if it promises a service that the seller actually has no intention of carrying out or as if it provides certain coverage that it actually does not. If a breach of warranty occurs, consumers can take legal action.

In many cases, if California residents believe that they have bought vehicles that turned out to be lemons, their warranty can be an important document to have. Lemon laws can help individuals who purchased new vehicles seek compensation for damages they suffered due to issues with their vehicles. Individuals interested in possibly making such a claim may want to speak with knowledgeable attorneys about their options.
