What kind of award can I get after winning a Lemon Law Case?

Under California law, you'll receive the full contract price of the car, incidental damages, and any collateral costs, such as sales tax, finance charges, interest, license fees, and manufacturer add-ons. You may also opt for a replacement vehicle, skipping the need to car shop again.

The manufacturer is entitled to deduct a usage fee for the value of the miles placed on the vehicle up to the first time it was taken in for repair work for the problem or defect that resulted in it being a lemon.

If the consumer can prove that the manufacturer or dealer willfully refused to repurchase the vehicle when the manufacturer knew that it should, then the consumer can obtain a civil penalty of up to two times his or her actual damages, in addition to the repurchase amount.

Other factors may also apply such as elder abuse and fraud. It is important to analyze the entire case with an attorney that is specialized and knows this law well! We will maximize your case with our expertise.
