What is Lemon Law?
Lemon laws are a group of state laws that provide protection for consumers who lease or purchase goods that repeatedly fall short of the manufacturer’s standards of quality and performance.
A good or product is considered defective if it does not work as intended or described by the manufacturer, or if it can cause harm to someone who uses it correctly. Vehicles with serious manufacturing defects are often called “lemons.” People who purchase or lease lemon vehicles qualify for protection under both state and federal lemon laws.
In California, the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (CA Civil Code § 1790-1795.8) provides consumer protections for individuals who have purchased or leased defective goods.
According to state lemon law, if you have made four or more repair attempts for the same defect; two or more repair attempts to fix an issue that could potentially cause bodily harm or death; or if your vehicle has been out of service for more than 30 calendar days for any repairs during the first 18 months or 18,000 miles of leasing or purchasing the vehicle, then your vehicle is presumably a lemon.
Keep in mind however, that vehicles that do not fit neatly into California’s lemon law presumption can still qualify for lemon law claims. To know with certainty if you qualify, you will need the assistance of a skilled lemon law attorney who can review your case.
Which Type of Vehicles Does Lemon Law Apply To?
Lemon Law covers vehicles that are leased or purchased new with warranties as well as used vehicles sold with written warranties, as long as those warranties come from the dealer or manufacturer. Per the terms of the warranty, the manufacturer is obligated to repair your vehicle during a specified period.
If you have taken your vehicle for multiple repairs during the warranty period and the manufacturer is still unable to fix issues in your vehicle, there is a chance that you may be driving a lemon. Thankfully, Lemon Law offers legal solutions and remedies if it is determined that your vehicle is a lemon.
If your vehicle is a lemon, you may be entitled to a refund, replacement vehicle, or cash compensation. A lemon law refund would consist of any money you have spent on your lemon including the vehicle’s down payment, any monthly payments, registration, taxes, towing expenses, rental car fees, as well as payment of your legal fees.
The manufacturer may withhold a usage fee, meaning that they will keep money for the number of miles that the vehicle was working properly, before the first repair attempt.
To qualify under California Lemon Law, you must take your vehicle to an authorized agent for any necessary repair work. Keep in mind that Lemon Law does not only apply to regular automobiles. Lemon laws can also apply to commercial vehicles, business vehicles, motorcycles, RVs, motorhomes, boats, ATVs, and more.
If you are not sure whether the vehicle you leased or purchased qualifies as a lemon, we are here to help. The Lemon Law Experts are among the best at what they do and have an extensive understanding of both state and federal lemon laws.
Contact our team to see if you qualify for a replacement vehicle, cash compensation, or a refund that would cover all fees and expenses associated with your lemon, including your attorney fees.
Do I Have a Lemon?
There are some indicators that your vehicle may be a lemon. California Lemon Law covers manufacturing defects that affect the use, value, or safety of your vehicle. To qualify for a lemon law claim, your vehicle must be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. If you are experiencing any of the following, your car may be a lemon if within the first 18 months or 18,000 miles:
- You have taken your vehicle in for multiple repairs for the same issue
- Your vehicle has spent over 30 calendar days (not necessarily in a row) at the repair shop
- Service providers have NOT been able to fix the problems in your vehicle within a reasonable number of repair attempts
- Your vehicle has a serious manufacturing defect that could cause injury or death to the driver and or any occupants
If any of these scenarios apply to your situation, then your vehicle may be a lemon according to California’s Lemon Law Presumption. Lemon laws are often intricate however, even at the state level.
It can be difficult to determine if a vehicle you purchased or leased is a lemon without consulting with an expert attorney who specializes in Lemon Law. If you are interested in filing a lemon law claim, then you will absolutely need the assistance of a San Francisco lemon law attorney if you wish to maximize what you could receive in recovery.
State lemon law applies to both used and leased vehicles with written warranties. If you have issues with your car past 18,000 miles or 18 months of purchase or lease, you may still be able to file a lemon law claim if the problems and first repair attempt occurred during the warranty period.
Vehicles that fall outside of California’s Lemon Law Presumption regularly qualify for individual lemon law claims. The best way to know if you qualify is by asking a reputable lemon law attorney.
If you live in the San Francisco area and have any questions or are interested in filing a claim for your vehicle, we can help you. The Lemon Law Experts are available to answer any questions you have about your situation. One of our highly skilled attorneys can review your case through a free, no-obligation consultation to help you determine if you qualify for a lemon law claim.
