Consumer protection laws in California don’t just apply to cars. If you’ve been experiencing persistent issues with your motorcycle, motorhome, boat, or plane, you’re still eligible for compensation under lemon law.
Now that you know how the lemon law works, let’s discuss the products that are covered under the lemon law. The lemon law deals with items covered under a warranty, so this typically includes mechanical and technical products. A few examples of things that might be covered under the law are:
Kitchen appliances, such as microwave ovens, refrigerators, stoves, ovens, blenders, toasters, and more
Desktop and laptop computers
Washers and dryers
TVs and sound systems
Lawn care machines, such as lawnmowers, weed whackers, etc.
While most people are used to the term “lemon” being used to describe a faulty car, it can really apply to a wide variety of products. As you can see from the list above (which isn’t even a comprehensive account of everything the lemon law applies to), many of the items you use every day are eligible for compensation under the lemon law. Many of these items are costly to replace, which can give you added peace of mind when spending a large amount on home appliances, computers, and cars.
Typically, the lemon law applies to new items, because new items are ones that come with a warranty. And while you typically purchase most of the above products as new rather than used, the one exception to that is a car. Many people opt for used cars over new, and they think they don’t have protection under the lemon law. However, how the California lemon law works is that it doesn’t differentiate between new or used — it only calls for a warranty to be in place. Even a used car can be protected, as long as it is still under the original warranty, or if the dealer provides you with a used car warranty when you purchase the car.
