California Lemon Laws for Car Sales 

There are a number of state and federal laws that protect consumers from buying cars from dealers committing fraud. California has some of the strongest consumer protection laws, including lemon laws for car buyers. Some of the laws and regulations that provide recourse for ripped-off car buyers include: 

  • The Car Buyer's Bill of Rights
  • The Consumer Legal Remedies Act
  • The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, and 
  • The Business and Professions Code 

What Do Lemon Laws Apply to?

Lemon laws generally cover new and used vehicle sales and leases in California, including vehicles purchased or leased for business use or personal use. California Lemon Law applies to vehicles that come with a manufacturer's vehicle warranty, including: 

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Vans, and
  • SUVs.

These are some of the laws that apply specifically to auto dealers. However, common fraud claims may involve a breach of contract or fraud claim for intentional misrepresentation.
