What is the California Lemon Law?
California Lemon Law (officially titled the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act; California Civil Code §§ 1790 et seq.) was established to protect any consumer who purchases or leases a vehicle with any kind of warranty. The lemon law requires a vehicle’s warrantor repurchase or replace the vehicle if it can’t be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts, and is then determined to be a “lemon.”
If you choose to have your vehicle repurchased, then the warrantor is required to reimburse your down payment, monthly payments, and pay off the remaining balance of your loan or lease. Whether you choose a repurchase or a replacement, you’re entitled to all of the taxes and licensing costs you’ve paid, as well as any other expenses you’ve incurred like towing costs, rental car costs, and repair fees.
The California Lemon Law not only applies to personal vehicles like cars, trucks, and motorcycles, but also to all warrantied consumer goods including RVs, motorhomes, boats, other watercraft, and all other consumer items. California’s Lemon Law protects new and used vehicles, both purchased and leased.
Does my vehicle qualify as a lemon?
All that’s required to qualify for California lemon law protection 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 defect that started within that warranty period wasn’t repaired within a reasonable number of attempts.
Many people wrongfully assume that California’s lemon law only applies to vehicles that are less than 18 months old, or have been driven less than 18,000 miles. In actuality, the 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, it may still qualify as 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.
California’s "presumption" provision is neither a requirement nor a prerequisite to file a lemon law claim in Ontario. 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.
