The general idea behind our California Lemon Laws is that we must be able to prove your vehicle has a material defect that affects its use, value, or safety.
This may include vehicle issues that require multiple trips to the repair shop, which eventually yield no real results.
And while any material defect can render a vehicle a lemon, there are common problems that may hint at your need to contact an experienced lemon law attorney, so you can develop real solutions that allow you to return to the road safely and consistently.
