Before you can file a lemon law claim in California, multiple criteria must be met.
Here is what consumers need to know about the California Lemon Law, and how many chances the manufacturer has to fix the defect before they can file a claim.
What Does the California Lemon Law Require Consumers to Prove Before Filing a Claim?
At Shainfeld Law, our Los Angeles County lemon law attorneys must first prove that our client’s vehicle has a defect that impairs its use, safety, or value.
Next, we must prove that our clients have given the manufacturer, dealership, or another certified mechanic a reasonable number of attempts to fix the defect and that those attempts did not result in a resolution.
What Does the California Lemon Law Deem a Reasonable Number of Repair Attempts?
There are multiple variations of what qualifies as a reasonable number of repair attempts, as outlined in the California Lemon Law.
- The manufacturer, dealership, or authorized mechanic only has two attempts to repair a defective vehicle that could cause serious bodily injury or death.
- The manufacturer, dealership, or authorized mechanic only has four attempts at fixing the same defect if it does not qualify as one that could cause serious bodily injury or death.
- If the defective vehicle has been with the manufacturer, dealership, or authorized mechanic for more than 30 days total — which do not have to be consecutive to count — for warranty-covered issues and repairs, it may be covered under the California Lemon Law.
