What Type of Documentation Will I Need to Prove My California Vehicle is a Lemon?
According to the California Department of Consumer Affairs, the California Lemon Law covers both new and used vehicles sold or leased with a manufacturer’s warranty.
- Pickup trucks
- Recreational Vehicles
If your vehicle is exhibiting signs of a defect, is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, and cannot be fixed by the dealership or certified mechanic after a qualifying number of attempts, it may be a lemon.
To prove your claim is legitimate, it helps to have supporting documentation.
That may include accurate and detailed repair records or logs of each car repair attempt that outlines the
- Repair Dates and Times.
- Repair Location(s).
- Name of the Car Repair Technician(s).
- Diagnostic Records Listing the Problem(s).
- Clear Documentation Regarding How the Problem Was Resolved.
You should begin retaining vehicle records the minute you realize there may be a problem. The more documentation you have, the stronger your case.

What is the Maximum Number of Vehicle Repairs Required by the California Lemon Law?
California’s Lemon Law Presumption explains when a defective vehicle reaches a qualifying number of repair attempts, which differs based on how the issue is affecting the vehicle’s drivability.
- If the vehicle defect could cause serious bodily injury or death, the dealer/manufacturer may have at least two attempts to fix the issue before your claim may move forward.
- If the vehicle defect persists after four or more attempts to fix it by the dealer/manufacturer, your claim may move forward.
- If the vehicle has spent more than 30 non-consecutive days at the dealership for warranty-covered issues and repairs, your claim may move forward.

Does the California Lemon Law Cover More Than Vehicles?
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 protects consumers who have purchased different types of appliances for personal or family use.
Like our California Lemon Law, when common consumer items are still under warranty, and have faced multiple repairs for the same issues without a resolution, the manufacturer must either repurchase the item, replace the item, refund the item’s value, or offer a cash settlement for the item.
Warrantied items that are eligible for coverage may include, but are not limited to:
- Digital cameras
- Electric toothbrushes
- Electronic equipment, including televisions and stereo systems
- Hearing aids
- Kitchen appliances
- Medical devices and/or equipment
- Musical instruments
- Personal computers, laptops, and tablets
