Is Your car a lemon?

Three Items That Your Car Must Have to Qualify as a Lemon

  1. The cars warranty must have provided coverage for the problems with the car.
  2. The car must possess a substantial impairment in use, value, or safety.
  3. The owner must have made multiple attempts to get the vehicle repaired or the car must have spent an unreasonable amount of days in the shop.

California Lemon Law

The California Lemon Law is codified by the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (California Civil Code, beginning at section 1790).

The Act grants you legal entitlement to a refund or a vehicle replacement at the manufacturer’s expense if you purchase a defective vehicle. However, you must provide evidence that meets the legal guidelines to establish it as a lemon.
