The California Lemon Law
The California Lemon Law provides protection to San Francisco and Bay Area consumers who have purchased or leased a new or used vehicle within the manufacturer’s original warranty period, which has a defect or “nonconformity” that substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. The California Lemon Law states that a manufacturer must be given a “reasonable” number of opportunities to repair a vehicle before it qualifies as “lemon.” Once a vehicle qualifies under the California Lemon Law, the manufacturer is required to promptly repurchase or replace the vehicle.

How Many Repair Attempts Do I Need Before I Can File a Lemon Law Claim?
The California Lemon Law does not require a specific number of repair attempts. The California Lemon Law states that a manufacturer’s authorized dealership must be given a “reasonable” number of repair attempts. A “reasonable” number is determined on a case-by-case basis according to the severity of the defect. Generally, vehicles with safety-related defects will require fewer visits than those with less serious concerns. A vehicle may also qualify for a Lemon Law claim if it has been at the repair facility for a cumulative total of over 30 days for repair (not necessarily all at one time).
Can I File a Lemon Law Claim if My Vehicle has More than 18,000 Miles?
Yes. You may still pursue a California Lemon Law claim if your vehicle has more than 18,000 miles of use. If your repair visits occurred within the manufacturer’s original warranty period, you may be protected by the California Lemon Law. In fact, most successful Lemon Law cases involve vehicle repair attempts that occur after the first 18,000 miles of use.
Can I File a Lemon Law Claim if My Repair Visits Did Not Occur Within the First 18 Months of Use?
Yes. You may still have a viable California Lemon Law claim if your repair visits did not occur within the first 18 months of use. The Lemon Law includes a rebuttable presumption that a vehicle qualifies if it is presented for a reasonable opportunity to repair within the first 18 months of use. However, you may still pursue a Lemon Law claim if your warranty repairs were performed outside of this initial 18 month presumption period.
Does the Lemon Law Apply to Leased or Used Vehicles?
Yes. Leased vehicles and used vehicles are afforded protection under the California Lemon Law. The California Lemon Law applies to new and used vehicles that are financed, leased, or purchased outright.
How Much is My “Lemon” Worth?
If your vehicle qualifies under the California Lemon Law, you are 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.
