During the lemon law process in California, if you choose to replace your lemon, your replacement vehicle must meet the following criteria:
- It must be essentially identical to your lemon at the time you purchased or leased it.
- It must include the same service contract.
- It must include any and all factory or dealer enhancements that came with the purchase of your lemon, i.e. undercoating.
You will still be reimbursed for rental cars, tow trucks, and any other expenses that are a direct consequence of your lemon, and the manufacturer will be held responsible for sales tax and license and registration fees for your new vehicle.
