Experienced San Bernardino Lemon Law Attorneys
The California lemon law was constructed to protect consumers who have purchased or leased a defective vehicle within the manufacturer’s warranty period. To qualify under the California lemon law, a vehicle must have a defect or “nonconformity” which is a substantial impairment to the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. The manufacturer must be given a “reasonable” number of opportunities to repair the vehicle’s defect. If the manufacturer is unable to repair the nonconformity within a “reasonable” amount of attempts they are obligated to promptly repurchase or replace the defective vehicle. Auto manufacturers hire defense attorneys who specialize in fighting lemon law claims, which is why it is essential that you have an experienced lemon law attorney on your side. Our San Bernardino lemon law attorneys have years of experience resolving the complex challenges that often arise in a lemon law case. If you have purchased or leased a “lemon” vehicle, our lemon law experts will work diligently with you to secure the relief you deserve.
How Many Repair Attempts Do I Need For my Vehicle to be a Lemon?
The California lemon law states that in order for a vehicle to qualify as a “lemon” it must be presented to the dealership for a “reasonable” amount of repair attempts. The lemon law does not state a specific number of repair attempts to determine what qualifies as “reasonable.” A “reasonable” number of repair attempts is based on the severity of the defect and determined on a case-by-case basis. This could mean as few as two repair opportunities for safety-related defects or more attempts for less serious defects. This requirement may also be satisfied if the vehicle is in the repair facility for a cumulative total of more than 30 days for repair (not necessarily all at one time).
Can I file a California Lemon Law Claim if My Repair Attempts Did Not Occur in the Vehicle’s First 18 Months or 18,000 Miles of Use?
Yes, there is a common misconception that the California lemon law only applies to vehicles that are less than eighteen months old or have been driven less than 18,000 miles. The California lemon law applies to vehicles that were sold within the manufacturers original warranty period, which have a defect that the manufacturer cannot repair within a “reasonable” amount of repair attempts. You may file a California lemon law claim so long as your repair attempts occurred within the manufacturer’s original warranty period, regardless of whether the repairs were within the first eighteen months or 18,000 miles.
Does the California Lemon Law Apply to Used Vehicles?
Yes, the California lemon law applies to new and used vehicles.
Does the California Lemon Law Apply to Leased Vehicles?
Yes, the California lemon law applies to vehicles leased, financed, and purchased outright.
If My Vehicle Qualifies as a “Lemon”, What Remedies are Available to Me?
If you have been sold a lemon vehicle, you are entitled to financial relief through the California lemon law. Under the California lemon law, you may be entitled to one of the following:
- a refund of all amounts paid or payable for the purchase or lease of your vehicle (less a statutory mileage offset or “good use” credit for miles driven before the first repair attempt);
- a replacement vehicle of the same MSRP value as your defective vehicle; or
- a cash settlement.
