What is the California Lemon Law?
The California Lemon Law (officially titled the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act; California Civil Code §§ 1790 et seq.) was enacted to protect any consumer who purchases or leases a vehicle that comes 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 then 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 your vehicle 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 that warranty period were not repaired within a reasonable number of attempts.
The most common misconception about California’s lemon laws is that they only protect 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 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 problem with your vehicle did, however, begin within the first eighteen 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. 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.
It’s important to note that lemon law’s "presumption" is not a requirement or a prerequisite to file a lemon law claim in West Covina. There are plenty of situations that do not meet the "presumption" provision of California’s lemon law, but still qualify your vehicle as a lemon.

Does my boat/watercraft qualify as a lemon?
As long as your boat or watercraft was covered under warranty and its defect was unable to be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts, then it is protected by the California 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 since expired, if your boat’s original problem occurred during its warranty period, then it is highly likely that you have a case.
