Boat and Watercraft Lemon Law Attorney In Corona

Many Californians are unaware of the fact that the state’s Lemon Law applies to boats and watercraft, not just motor vehicles and motorcycles. In 1970 the California General Assembly enacted the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act in order to protect any unsuspecting consumer who purchases a defective vehicle or watercraft, in good faith, and doesn’t discover said defects until after the sales contract has been signed. The California Lemon Law covers watercrafts in the same way as it covers passenger cars. Unfortunately, many myths and misconceptions about California’s Lemon law abound, causing boat owners to waste money and time on repairers, who are determined to keep a problem boat despite its unfixable nature. The California Lemon Law is a powerful tool to protect you and your investment in your watercraft.
