What Is the California Lemon Law?

The California lemon law is a statute that protects consumers who have purchased or leased new or used vehicles with serious, unfixable defects. The law, which is also known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, requires vehicle manufacturers to either replace or repurchase defective vehicles from consumers.

Under the California lemon law, a “lemon” vehicle is defined as a vehicle that:

  • Has significant defects that were not fixed after a reasonable number of repair attempts
  • Has been out of service for more than 30 days due to repairs

It is important to note that the vehicle must be covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty in order to be considered a lemon under the law. Additionally, the law applies to new and used vehicles, as long as the vehicle is still covered by the original manufacturer's warranty.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lemon Law Claim in California?

Under the California lemon law, you must file a claim within a certain time frame. Generally speaking, you have four years from when your vehicle started experiencing warrantable issues.

Waiting to file your lemon law claim can have negative consequences, and if you accidentally miss the four-year time limit, your case will most likely be denied. Taking steps as soon as possible after your vehicle experiences an issue that triggers the manufacturer's warranty is essential, and our Lemon Law lawyers can help.

What Are My Rights Under the California Lemon Law?

If you have a lemon vehicle, you have a number of rights under the California lemon law. You have a right to:

  • Have your vehicle replaced with a comparable vehicle
  • Have your vehicle repurchased by the manufacturer
  • Receive a full refund of the purchase price of the vehicle, including taxes, licensing fees, and other charges
  • Receive reimbursement for incidental damages

When you work with CA Lemon Law Firm, our Rancho Santa Fe lemon law lawyer will review the details of your case and help you determine the best course of action.
