What is the California Lemon Law?
The California Lemon Law (officially called 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 forces 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 the warrantor is required to reimburse your down payment, monthly payments, and pay off the remaining balance of your loan/lease. Whether you ultimately choose a repurchase or a replacement, you’re entitled to recover all of the taxes and licensing costs you’ve paid, as well as any other expenses like towing costs, rental car costs, and related repair fees.
California’s Lemon Laws do not only apply to cars, trucks, and motorcycles, but to all warrantied consumer goods including 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 is necessary to qualify for California Lemon Law protection is that the vehicle you purchased was sold or leased with any kind of warranty (even a simple 30 day/1,000 mile warranty), and that any problems that started within the warranty period were not repaired within a reasonable number of attempts.
A very common misconception concerning California’s lemon law is that it only applies to a vehicle that is less than 18 months old, or has been driven fewer than 18,000 miles. But according to the law, lemon law protection applies to any improperly repaired vehicle that sold with a warranty, regardless of the vehicle’s age or mileage.
Even if a vehicle’s warranty has already expired, it may still qualify for lemon law protection so long as the defect first occurred during the vehicle’s warranty period. A quick call to one of our practiced Lemon Law attorneys can help you determine if your vehicle is a lemon and what your available legal options are.
If the problem with your vehicle began within the first 18 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 requirement, 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 "presumption" isn’t a requirement or a prerequisite to file a lemon law claim in Sacramento. There are many situations that don’t meet the "presumption" provision, but still qualify your vehicle as a lemon under California’s lemon law statutes.

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 fixed after a reasonable number of attempts, then it is protected under California’s lemon law.
The lemon laws that protect consumers don’t just extend to personal vehicles like cars or trucks. If your boat or other watercraft vehicle did not run as it should under its given warranty, then you may qualify for a refund, replacement, and related damages. Even if your warranty has since expired, if your boat’s initial problems occurred during the warranty period, then it is highly likely that you have a case.
