File a California Lemon Law ClaimOur Los Angeles, California lemon law attorney at Shainfeld Law, P.C. knows that it can take months or even years to realize that the problem you are experiencing with your vehicle cannot be fixed. When California residents realize they have a defective vehicle, they may be eligible to file a claim using the California Lemon Law to pursue the legal remedy that fits their needs.

If you are eligible to pursue a lemon law claim against a defective vehicle manufacturer, your claim must unfold under a certain timeline.

What is the California Lemon Law Statute of Limitations?

Generally, the California Lemon Law imposes a four-year statute of limitations — or legal deadline — to file a claim when the owner has experienced warrantable problems with their vehicle.

The four-year limit typically starts when the consumer initially experiences the potential defect that is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

The more critical factor in pursuing a successful lemon law claim is that you can prove you allowed the manufacturer the mandated number of reasonable attempts to have the defect repaired during the warranty period and that a mechanic could not fix the problem.

Before we can get started:
