Lemon Law in California: What are your rights?

Learn About Your California Lemon Law Rights

California is home to the largest population of Americans in the United States. This also means the state has the greatest number of vehicles on the road. If you’ve driven during Fresno’s rush hour, or out to the foothills, you know that the highways and city streets are no place for defective cars.

In the unfortunate situation that you end up with a faulty vehicle, the good news is there are lemon law consumer rights protecting you.

California Lemon Law, also referred to as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, was put in place to hold manufacturers accountable for shoddy production. At Cline APC, we proudly educate and carry out the Fresno lemon law rights that consumers deserve.

If your vehicle meets the following lemon law criteria, you might be entitled to compensation:

The vehicle has been out of service for more than 30 days while being repaired for any number of warranty-covered problems.


The vehicle has several warranty-covered problems, of which were not caused by abuse of the vehicle.

These criteria don’t just apply during the first 18 months of the purchase date or before 18,000 miles. As long as you purchased a vehicle covered by a warranty, the lemon law can cover the above referenced concerns.

If your vehicle meets the qualifications of California lemon law, your rights include:

Attorney fees and costs covered in full by manufacturer.
Attorney fees and court costs covered in full by manufacturer.
A full refund based in the original acquisition price of the vehicle.
A refund of the original purchase price of the vehicle, including payoff of the vehicle loan.
A replacement of your vehicle.
A replacement of your vehicle.

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.
