Lemon Law in California: What are your rights?

Learn About Your California Lemon Law Rights

If you live in L.A., you know the city’s traffic congestion is one of the worst in the world. It doesn’t help that many drivers are in faulty vehicles that threaten other commuters.

Anyone can wind up behind the wheel of a poorly manufactured vehicle. That’s why California has lemon law consumer rights.

California Lemon Law (the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act) holds manufacturers accountable for defective cars. At Cline APC, we educate clients on the lemon law in California so every driver understands their rights.

The following factors can indicate if manufacturer mistakes entitle you to compensation.


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


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, that impairs its use, value, or safety.

It’s important to note that there is a California lemon law time limit. The defect must first occur within the term of the express warranty. Although a common misunderstanding, it does NOT need to be met within the first 18 months after purchase or before the odometer reaches 18,000 miles. But, if these time limits are met, they will form the basis for a much stronger lemon law case.
