What is the California Lemon Law?
The California Lemon Law (officially entitled the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act; California Civil Code §§ 1790 et seq.) was enacted to protect any consumer who purchases or leases a warrantied vehicle. The lemon law requires a vehicle’s warrantor to 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 its warrantor must reimburse your down payment, monthly payments, and pay off any remaining balance on your loan or lease. Regardless of whether you choose a repurchase or a replacement, you’re entitled to recover all the taxes and licensing costs you have paid, as well as any other expenses you might’ve incurred, like towing costs, rental car costs, and repair fees.
California Lemon Law not only applies to cars and trucks, but to all warrantied consumer goods and personal vehicles, including motorcycles, RVs, motorhomes, boats, other watercraft, and all other consumer items. California’s Lemon Law covers new and used vehicles, both purchased and leased.
Does my vehicle qualify as a lemon?
All that’s necessary to qualify for protection under California’s Lemon Law is that the vehicle you purchased or leased was sold with any kind of warranty (even a basic 30 day/1,000 mile warranty), and that any problem that started during that warranty period was not repaired within a reasonable number of attempts.
Many consumers wrongly 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 fact, the lemon law applies to any improperly repaired vehicle 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 for lemon law protections so long as its initial defect occurred while the vehicle was under warranty. A simple call to one of our knowledgeable Lemon Law lawyers can assist you in determining if your vehicle is a lemon, as well as what legal options are available to you.
If the problems with your vehicle began within the first 18 months and/or 18,000 miles of your vehicle’s warranty (called the “presumption” period), then you may qualify for additional lemon law protections. These additional protections presume that your vehicle is a lemon. Typically you, the consumer, would have to prove that your vehicle is a lemon in order to win your case, but when your vehicle meets the presumption requirements, it becomes the warrantor’s burden to prove that your vehicle is not a lemon. Think of it as the warrantor is presumed guilty until proven innocent.
It’s important to be aware that the lemon law "presumption" is neither a requirement nor a prerequisite to file a lemon law claim in Orange. There are many situations that don’t meet the "presumption" provision of lemon law, but still qualify your vehicle as a lemon according to the state of California.

Does my boat/watercraft qualify as a lemon?
As long as your boat or watercraft was covered under warranty, and its defects were unable to be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts, then it is protected by the California lemon law.
The lemon laws created to protect consumers don’t just extend to personal vehicles like cars or trucks: if your boat or other watercraft did not perform as it should under its warranty, then you may qualify for a refund or replacement, in addition to related damages. Even if your warranty has now expired, if your boat’s initial problem occurred during its warranty period, then it’s highly likely that you have a case.
