At Shainfeld Law, P.C., our Los Angeles, California lemon law attorney knows that one of the major concerns California vehicle owners have is whether their vehicle defect applies to the California Lemon Law.
The good news is, our law firm focuses only on pursuing California Lemon Law claims on behalf of consumers throughout the state, so they can reach the legal remedy that fits their needs. The better news is, there is no such thing as the “type” of problem — like a transmission leak, faulty electrical system, or steering problem — that makes a California vehicle a lemon.
Instead, the California lemon law simply requires:
- The vehicle to be under the manufacturer’s warranty.
- The problem you are experiencing with the vehicle is covered by its warranty.
- You have allowed the manufacturer the mandated number of reasonable attempts to have the defect repaired.
- That the mechanic could not fix the problem.
The lemon law legislation in California empowers consumers to pursue the manufacturer for a legal remedy that may include buying back the defective vehicle for 100% of the costs you have invested in it, replacing the vehicle with a comparable vehicle, or providing a cash settlement that covers the time, energy, and challenges you have endured with the vehicle, while allowing you to keep it.

Important Note for Consumers Who May Have a Lemon Law Claim: Do Not Drive an Unsafe Vehicle
What qualifies as a reasonable number of repair attempts varies based on the vehicle’s defect, and includes:
- The manufacturer only has four attempts at fixing the same defect if it does not qualify as one that could cause serious bodily injury or death.
- The manufacturer only has two attempts to repair a defective vehicle that could cause serious bodily injury or death.
