Lemon Law FAQ’s

Lemon Law FAQ’s | Commonly asked Lemon Law Questions and Answers

Does the Lemon Law Apply to My Leased Vehicle?

Yes. A leased vehicle is covered by California lemon laws as long as it was leased with a warranty.

Do I Still Have a Lemon Law Claim if My Vehicle is Out of Warranty?

Depends. If the first repair attempt for the problem or defect occurred during the warranty period, then the vehicle may still qualify for a refund or replacement, if other requirements are met. Call the Lemon Law Experts at California Lemon Law Group for a further explanation on this topic.

What is the Lemon Law Presumption?

In California, your vehicle is presumed to be a lemon if any of the following occur within the first 24 months and 24,000 miles of purchasing or leasing your vehicle:

  • 4 or more repair attempts for the same issue;
  • 2 or more repair attempts to fix an issue that can cause injury or death; or
  • Your vehicle is out of service for more than 30 days for any repairs.

In California, if any of these criteria are met, your vehicle is presumably a lemon and you are entitled to a refund or replacement vehicle.

What if the Problems with My Vehicle Happened After 24,000 Miles or 24 Months?

You may still have a claim. The lemon laws provide consumer with protection as long as the problems took place during the warranty period. In many situations, you may still qualify for lemon law protection even if your vehicle is not outside the warranty period. You may have a valid lemon law claim as long as the first repair attempt for the defect occurred during the warranty period.

Do Motorcycles, Boats, Motor Homes, RVs, and Other Consumer Vehicles Qualify Under California’s Lemon Laws?

Yes. All of these types of vehicles qualify for protection under California’s lemon laws as long as they were purchased or leased for personal, family or household purposes.
