The California lemon law represents the Legislature’s response to the increasing exploitation of express warranties in product advertising. If your vehicle has had at least two repair attempts, you may be entitled to a lemon law repurchase or replacement.
The buyer of a new motor vehicle is entitled to a recovery if:
(1) the vehicle has a “nonconformity” to warranty that substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle to the buyer or lessee; and
(2) the manufacturer or its representative(s) does not properly repair the vehicle to conform to its warranty after a reasonable number of attempts.
If the manufacturer or its authorized repair facility is unable to service or repair your vehicle to conform to the applicable express warranties after a reasonable number of attempts, the manufacturer must promptly replace the vehicle or provide a refund.
