California Dispute Settlement Program (CDSP)

The CDSP is a free service for vehicle owners with warranty disputes.

The CDSP program offers arbitration to vehicle owners and manufacturers to resolve disputes involving vehicles under California's lemon law.

In arbitration, the parties bring their case to an Arbitrator who reviews the complaint and makes a decision. Arbitrated decisions are binding on the manufacturer, once accepted by the consumer. Arbitrators are attorneys and/or dispute resolution professionals trained on the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, California's lemon law, and the specific rules and guidelines of the CDSP program.
