A body of consumer protection laws in the state of California. This legislation was given its nickname because people have come to refer to troublesome vehicles as “lemons”.
New or used vehicles sold or leased under a manufacturer’s warranty can be bought back, replaced, or cash settled. The vehicle must meet the lemon law requirements, among them, the vehicle has not been repaired within a reasonable number of repair attempts.
The type of defect can affect what “reasonable attempts” means. For example, a brake problem may be considered reasonable with fewer repair attempts than a defect that doesn’t affect the vehicles safety. Another way of providing a reasonable number of repair attempts is looking at the number of days the vehicle has been at the repair facility.
A “substantial impairment” is a problem which is covered by the warranty that impairs the car’s use, value, or safety.
