Does your new motorcycle have a defect that substantially impairs its use, value or safety? If so, you may be able to pursue a claim under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.
You should check on these next few points in order to start establishing a Lemon Law Claim:
First of all, find the right motorcycle for your needs. If you commute 30 miles daily on the freeway to and from work, get a bike that can handle serious highway use. If you go off-roading a lot, get a motocross bike or some other vehicle that’s adopted for that purpose.
Second, research options thoroughly before you even take a test drive. Talk to dealers and other motorcycle enthusiasts about optimal specs, preferences, and warranty info.
Third, test drive. Take your bike out on the road and really put it through its paces. This way, you will stand a better chance of identifying potential defects before you buy.
Finally, read over your warranty and financing arrangements carefully. Although these documents can make anyone’s eyes glaze over, they are very important to read. Ask anyone who has been burned by a lemon bike in the past.
Simply put, the California Lemon Law is an additional level of protection given to consumers in the State of California who purchase or lease vehicle that require repeated repairs or are in the repair shop for long periods of time while under the original manufacturer’s warranty.
When you purchase or lease a new automobile (or a used vehicle with a factory warranty) in the State of California, the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, better known as the California Lemon Law can be a very powerful tool when dealing with the giant vehicle manufacturers. The California Lemon Law covers new and used cars, pickup trucks, vans, SUVs as well as motor homes.
The automobile manufacturer is under obligation, if there are too many attempts to repair or if the vehicle is in the repair shop for a very long time, to either repurchase or replace the defective vehicle. There is no set number of repair attempts. Vehicle manufacturers are obligated to repair defects and are allowed a “reasonable” opportunity to do so. What is a “reasonable” number of attempts depends on the nature of the defect. If a defect is serious enough a “reasonable” number may be fewer than four, but more than one (For a more thorough explanation, see California Lemon Law.)
