Lemon Law in California: What are your rights?

Learn About Your California
Lemon Law Rights

California has more vehicles on the road than most American states. If you’ve driven during Fresno’s rush hour, or out to the foothills, you know that these highways and city streets are no place for defective cars.

Should you wind up with a faulty vehicle, there are lemon law consumer rights to protect Californians just like you.

The California lemon law (the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act) was put in place to hold manufacturers accountable for shoddy production. At Cline APC, we make it a point to educate drivers on their legal rights under lemon law.

These factors indicate if manufacturer mistakes entitle you to compensation under the lemon law in California:

1

The vehicle manufacturer has made at least two or more attempts to repair a warranty-covered defect, or 

2

The vehicle has been out of service for more than 30 days while being repaired for warranty-covered problems; and 

3

The vehicle has several warranty-covered problems, which were not caused by abuse of the vehicle and that impair its use, value, or safety.

It’s important to note that there is a time limit for seeking compensation under California lemon law. Your vehicle’s defect must occur within the defined terms of the express warranty.

Despite the common misunderstanding, your vehicle’s issue does not need to be addressed within the first 18 months after purchase or before the odometer reaches 18,000 miles. However, if the problem(s) does arise before these limits, you’ll have a basis for a much stronger lemon law case.

When your vehicle meets the qualifications of the California lemon law, you’re entitled to:

Manufacturer coverage of all attorney fees and court costs

A full refund of the vehicle’s original acquisition price

A replacement vehicle if necessary

The lemon law process is not always simple. For consumers who don’t seek out the help of a specialized lemon law lawyer, manufacturers will often create unnecessary hurdles or openly deny your rights.
