Calculating a Lemon Law Buy Back in California

Determining the Price to Buy Back Purchased Products

When a dealer or manufacturer buys back your purchased vehicle or product under the Lemon Law, it must refund you your down-payment and any payments that you made for the vehicle (including the finance charges, if any). It must also pay off any outstanding loan you have related to the purchase and refund you any collateral charges for things like registration, repair costs, towing charges, replacement or rental vehicle costs, and even lost revenue caused by a small business’s inability to service its clients.

When buying back leased vehicles, the dealer or manufacturer must refund you your down payment or payment due at signing, all of your payments made on the lease, and any amount of money necessary to terminate your lease including early termination charges. The collateral charges associated with purchased vehicles apply to leased vehicles and must also be refunded. The calculation of leased and purchased vehicle buybacks is contained in California Civil Code Section 1793.2(d)(2)(A), (B) and (C).

Sage Law Group, LLP is well-versed in California Lemon Law and can determine what an appropriate buyback price would be for your particular vehicle. We can apply our knowledge and experience in past claims to your situation, helping you seek a favorable outcome so that you can move on with your life.

Call Sage Law Group, LLP for help determining the buyback price of your defective vehicle. Dial (800) 581-3087.

Foregoing a Buy Back for a Replacement Vehicle

Instead of buying back your defective vehicle, a dealer or manufacturer may give you an identical replacement vehicle.

The replacement vehicle will include:

  • Service contract identical to your prior one, if applicable
  • Any dealer options that were included in the original purchase/lease
  • Reimbursement for collateral expenses like temporary rental car costs, towing fees, and repair costs

Regardless of whether the responsible party is buying back or replacing your vehicle, Sage Law Group, LLP can be there to facilitate your claim and help you seek the appropriate compensation that you deserve.
