Our California lemon law attorney at Shainfeld Law, P.C., knows there is a lot of confusion regarding what type of defects make a vehicle a lemon, and whether the California Lemon Law protects consumers whose cars, trucks, or SUVs qualify for relief.

The reality is, if you purchase a vehicle that is still under the original manufacturer’s warranty, you are protected by our California lemon law.

If a mechanic cannot fix a defect that has a substantial effect on the safety, use, or value of your vehicle in a reasonable number of attempts, your vehicle may qualify for Lemon Law relief.

What Types of Defects Does the California Lemon Law Cover?

The California Lemon Law covers all types of automobile defects that affect the value, safety, or use of the vehicle.

Vehicle defects can occur in countless ways, and may include (but is not limited to):

  • Braking problems, including brake warning lights
  • Door locks
  • Lack of power
  • Major engine defects
  • Most electrical problems
  • Navigation system issues
  • Power seats
  • SRS and airbag systems
  • Sunroofs
  • Transmission problems
  • Turbocharger malfunction

For your vehicle to be eligible for relief under the California Lemon Law, it can be new or used but must be under the original manufacturer’s warranty.

Do I Need An Attorney to Pursue a Lemon Law Claim in California?

Technically, you do not need a California Lemon Law attorney to pursue the manufacturer for relief, but it will help you navigate the legal process quickly and effectively.

There is never any charge to partner with an attorney to discuss your lemon law options, or for us to file a claim on your behalf. The manufacturer is responsible for all legal fees associated with a lemon law claim in California, so our services cost consumers nothing.
