California Lemon Law

Consumers in California should be aware of various state and federal laws designed to protect them from the problems of a defective vehicle still under warranty. These "lemon laws" are codified under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and the California Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and Tanner Consumer Protection Act.

Under the lemon laws mentioned above, the manufacturer or dealer has a reasonable number of opportunities to repair the defect in the vehicle. What constitutes reasonability depends on the specific defect. If the manufacturer or dealer cannot repair the defect and the vehicle qualifies as a "lemon" under the lemon laws, they must return the consumer's money or provide a replacement vehicle.

The lemon laws also provide for the consumer to be awarded its reasonable attorneys fees in the event the vehicle is determined to be defective under the lemon laws.
