Making sense of Lemon Law Presumption

While lemon law presumption differs from state to state, most follow the same basic structure. In the state of California, your vehicle falls under Lemon Law Presumption if the following occurs within 18 months or 18,000 miles of purchasing your vehicle:

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. If this happens, you are entitled to compensation.
