What is California Lemon Law?

Lemon laws are a set of laws in the United States that provide protections to consumers who have purchased a defective good. Lemon laws most frequently apply to vehicles — personal use cars, boats, planes, RVs, motorcycles, etc., that experience persistent mechanical issues while still under warranty. The details of lemon laws vary from state to state, but the overall purpose of these laws are the same: to fairly compensate consumers who have spent time and money on a defective vehicle.

What California Lemon Law can Do for You

California has a certain set of criteria and standards when defining lemon law. In order for your vehicle to be deemed a lemon, it must meet those standards set by California lemon law. The term “lemon law presumption” describes the scenario in which your car can be presumed as a lemon. The following must occur within 10 months or 18,000 miles of purchasing your vehicle to fall under presumption:

  • It is repaired at least two times for a substantial safety defect that can cause bodily injury or death
  • It is repaired at least four times for a persistent non-substantial safety defect
  • It is out of service for more than 30 days total due to any combination of problems or defects.

A consumer must be able to prove at least one of the above criteria in a court of law for a judge to presume your vehicle a lemon. However, even if your vehicle does seemingly meet these requirements, manufacturers have the opportunity to fight against this, which is why it’s important to have an experienced lawyer on your side. Even if you don’t think your car qualifies under California lemon law presumption, reach out to us today. You may still be eligible for compensation.

Define Lemon Law

Associated with the California lemon law definition, you often hear the phrase “reasonable number of repair attempts” when describing the lemon law process. A manufacturer is only allowed a certain number of repair attempts before your car can be deemed a lemon. After a certain amount of repair attempts without success, you as a consumer are eligible to file a claim against the manufacturer. In California, these are the criteria that define a “reasonable number” of repair attempts:


  • Your vehicle’s issues are such that they could cause death or bodily harm, the car has been in for repair two or more times, and the manufacturer has been notified of need for the repairs.
  • The car been in for repairs four or more times and the manufacturer has been notified of the need for repairs.
  • The issue has caused your car to be out of service for more than 30 days since your car was purchased.
