The people of San Diego who buy the lemon automobiles are not fully without an option or at a disadvantage. Both the federal (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) and state (San Diego Lemon Law) protect the customers who have been wronged for the faulty vehicles.

The condition is that the customer should have bought the vehicle from a wholesaler at San Diego so that they can easily claim for the warranty. The law is applicable to those who have received ownership of the automobile in the warranty period. If the vehicle is bought from another state and if the consumer moves to San Diego and faces defects in the car then the state is not responsible. The claim can be pursued through the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act being a federal law provides protection to all the Americans irrespective of wherever they bought the vehicle in the United States.
