Vehicle Manufacturer Defect

What Qualifies as a Lemon Under California’s Lemon Law?

Vehicle owners throughout California continuously take their cars, trucks, and SUVs back to the dealership, looking for answers because being the unlucky buyer of a lemon vehicle is a tough pill to swallow. If you have purchased or leased a vehicle with a manufacturer defect, there’s no way you would have known it. Still, it’s frustrating.

Vehicles deemed “Lemons” under California’s Lemon Law cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts.  

As outlined in the California Lemon Law, multiple variations exist of what qualifies as a reasonable number of repair attempts.

  • 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.

If your vehicle is exhibiting signs of being a lemon and is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, we can help. When you choose to work with our seasoned lemon law attorneys in California, we will vigorously pursue your claim with the manufacturer.

If we are successful—99% of the time—the manufacturer is responsible for ALL your legal fees. This means you won’t have to pay anything out of pocket for your lemon law claim. Even if we are unsuccessful, you still won’t owe us anything.
