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, and related repair fees.

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?

All that’s required to qualify for protection under California’s Lemon Law is that the vehicle you purchased 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.

The most common misconception about 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 expired, your vehicle may still qualify so long as the defect first occurred while the vehicle was under a warranty. A quick 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 did, however, begin within the first 18 months and/or 18,000 miles of your vehicle’s warranty (known as the “presumption” period), then you may 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.

Be aware that the lemon law "presumption" is neither a requirement nor a prerequisite to file a lemon law claim in Los Angeles. There are many situations that do not meet the "presumption" provision 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.

    Important information regarding your Los Angeles Lemon Law claim

    Los Angeles is well known for its long relationship with automobiles. Though LA’s public transportation system continues to evolve, most Angelenos navigate the streets of Los Angeles in personal vehicles. With the second largest metropolitan area in the United States, Los Angeles County is home to nearly ten million residents, and automobiles play a significant role in the culture and economy of the area. With dealerships throughout L.A.—like Honda of Downtown, Toyota of Hollywood, Glendale Kia, Nissan, Alexander Imports, Felix Chevrolet, and hundreds of others—it’s no wonder so many lemon law claims are filed here.
