California Lemon Law Requirements

We have protected California lemon law clients since 1987 and recovered millions of dollars for thousands of clients.

The most frequent question asked is, "Does my car qualify for the California lemon law?"

  • The California lemon law provides a solution for California consumers who have repeated problems related to the safety, value, or use of their vehicle. It applies to all new vehicles, whether purchased or leased, for personal and most small business use.
  • Used vehicles are also covered if the vehicle was purchased while the manufacturer's original, new car warranty was in effect.
  • A consumer must allow the manufacturer a reasonable number of repair attempts. A reasonable number is three or more repair attempts for the same or similar problem; or only two times if it is likely to cause serious bodily injury; or if the vehicle has been out of service, in the hands of an authorized dealer for more than 30 days during the first 18 months or 18,000 miles.

These are not absolute requirements for our office to file a demand for repurchase on your behalf. Many situations do not meet these guidelines but may still entitle you to lemon law protection.

To sum up, so long as the manufacturing defect affects safety, value, or use; first occurred within the new car warranty period; and cannot be repaired after a reasonable number of repair attempts, you may be entitled to the lemon law protections.

You should know too that you do not have to first go through arbitration to pursue a California Lemon Law claim. In fact, going through arbitration may be dangerous for your case.

We will be glad to provide a free analysis by one of our lemon law attorneys to asses whether your situation qualifies. If you qualify, your attorney's fees are paid by the manufacturer!
