Does The California Lemon Law Apply To Used Vehicles?


If a used vehicle is sold while there is still a remainder of the manufacturer’s warranty, then the California Lemon Law still protects that buyer from getting stuck with a Lemon.

To make purchasing a Used Vehicle more attractive to consumers, many manufacturers and dealerships will certify their used Vehicles by extending the original factory warranty an additional year. The buyer of a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is usually given the opportunity to extend that manufacturer's warranty even longer. This extended warranty not only protects the buyer from being stuck with a lemon similar to a new vehicle warranty, but quite often the extended warranty combined with original factory warranty can offer longer protection than you could get by buying a new vehicle.
