What is the California Lemon Law?

California Lemon Law (officially titled the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act; California Civil Code §§ 1790 et seq.) was created to protect any consumer who purchases or leases a vehicle with a warranty. The lemon law requires that a vehicle’s warrantor repurchase or replace the vehicle if it cannot be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts and is determined to be a “lemon.”

If you choose to have your vehicle repurchased, the warrantor is required to reimburse your down payment, monthly payments, and pay off the balance of your loan or lease. Regardless of whether you choose a repurchase or replacement, you are entitled to recover all the taxes and licensing costs you have paid, as well as other expenses like towing costs, rental car costs, related repair fees, and more.

California’s Lemon Law not only applies to cars and trucks, but to all warrantied consumer goods including motorcycles, RVs, motorhomes, boats, other watercraft, and all other consumer items. California Lemon Law covers new and used vehicles, both purchased and leased.

Does my vehicle qualify as a lemon?

The only thing required for protection under California’s Lemon Law is that the vehicle you purchased or leased was sold with any kind of warranty (even a simple 30 day/1,000 mile warranty), and that any problems that started within that warranty period were not repaired within a reasonable number of attempts.

A basic misunderstanding of California’s lemon law is that it only applies to vehicles that are less than 18 months old, or have been driven less than 18,000 miles. In fact, lemon law applies to any improperly repaired vehicle that was sold with a warranty, regardless of the vehicle’s age or mileage.

Even if a vehicle’s warranty has since expired, your vehicle still qualifies as long as its defect first presented while the vehicle was under a warranty. A simple call to one of our experienced Lemon Law lawyers can help you determine if your vehicle is a “lemon”, and what legal options are available to you.

If the problems with your vehicle began within the first eighteen months and/or 18,000 miles of your vehicle’s warranty (known as the “presumption” period), then you qualify for additional lemon law protections. These additional protections presume that your vehicle is a lemon. Normally you, the consumer, would have to prove your vehicle is a lemon to win a case, but when your vehicle meets the presumption requirements, it becomes the warrantor’s (often the manufacturer’s) burden to prove that your vehicle is not a lemon. Think of it as the warrantor is presumed guilty until proven innocent.

Note that the lemon law "presumption" is neither a requirement nor a prerequisite to file a claim in Long Beach. There are many situations that do not meet the "presumption" clause of California’s lemon law, but still qualify your vehicle as a lemon under California lemon law statutes.

Does my boat/watercraft qualify as a lemon?

As long as your boat or watercraft was covered by a warranty and its defects were unable to be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts, then it is protected by California’s lemon law.

The lemon laws that protect consumers do not just extend to personal vehicles like cars or trucks. If your boat or other watercraft vehicle did not perform as it should under its given warranty, then you may qualify for a refund, replacement, and related damages. Even if your warranty has expired, if your boat’s initial problem occurred during the warranty period, then it is highly likely that you have a case.
