“Pleased with the Service”

Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.

What Is the Lemon Law
in California?

The California Lemon Law, outlined in Civ. Code § 1793.2 et seq. is designed to protect consumers who have purchased cars that are not working as they should.

California’s lemon law says consumers have the right to a refund or replacement when they buy vehicles that need constant repairs or have serious and persistent mechanical problems.

Formally known as the Tanner Consumer Protection Act, the lemon law covers all motor vehicles sold or leased in California with a manufacturer’s warranty. It lays out the process dissatisfied vehicle buyers can follow to recover the money they paid for a “lemon” and all related costs, like repairs and towing.

Who is Covered Under the Lemon Laws in California?

The law covers all types of motor vehicles sold with a manufacturer’s warranty in California.

Types of Vehicles Covered by The Lemon law In California:


The majority of Lemon Law cases are attributed to defective brand new and even not “new motor vehicle” automobiles. Our California car lemon law attorneys can help.


When you purchase or lease a new motorcycle the California Lemon Law can be a very powerful tool when dealing with giant vehicle manufacturers. Reach out to our motorcycle lemon law attorneys in California if you have been sold a lemon.


If the manufacturer or dealer is unable to service or repair the truck they sold to you, then the California Lemon Law protects you.

Recreational Vehicles

Have you purchased a defective recreational vehicle (RV)? You’re not alone. Our California RV Lemon Law Attorneys can help.


If the manufacturer or dealer is unable to service or repair the bus to meet the terms of the warranty then the manufacturer is required to replace the vehicle or refund your money.

As well as the part of a motor home that functions as a vehicle (not the part used as a habitation).

Leased vehicles are covered, because they should have a warranty. Used vehicles can be covered as long as the manufacturer’s original warranty applies. Cars used for business qualify as long as the business owns five or fewer vehicles. Vehicles intended for off-road use, like ATVs and “dirt bikes,” are not covered but you still have protection under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.

 Types of Vehicles Our Attorneys Can Help You With

Most people seek a reliable vehicle at dealerships. Concerned yours might be a lemon? Find out if your car qualifies for Lemon Law protection. Our experienced California Lemon Law attorneys are here to assist.

GMC Vehicle

General Motors Company only offers a short 3 year/36,000-mile warranty. To get proper representation in the court you should have an aggressive attorney.

Chevrolet Vehicle

Chevrolet is the fourth-largest automobile brand in the world. The Chevy Bolt is ranked the #12 worst lemon on the market, and the Chevy Equinox is #18.

Honda Vehicle

Honda is in second place for making the fewest lemons (just one lemon per every 2 million vehicles). Their warranty isn’t the best (3 years/36,000 miles), but that doesn’t exempt them from occurring.


Acura offers one of the longest powertrain warranty of any automaker: 6 years or 70,000 miles.


Audi makes two of the hardest cars to fix on the road today, the Audi A8 and the Audi R8 Spyder. The Q5 is their most reliable vehicle, and the A3 Saloon is their least reliable. They rank 34th out of 40 on the Reliability Index.


The Chrysler Pacifica is the #2 worst lemon out there today. This is not helped by the manufacturer’s super short 3 year/36,000-mile warranty.


The Dodge Journey is the #7 biggest lemon made today, and the Dodge Durango is #10. Just like Chrysler, don’t expect much protection from the 3 year/36,000-mile warranty either.


The Ford Fusion Energy is the #5 biggest lemon out today. Like so many American automakers, they also offer an industry “bare minimum” warranty of 3 years/36,000 miles.


And the winner for making the most lemons…yes, it’s Hyundai! The Hyundai Santa Fe is the single biggest lemon on the road, and the Hyundai Tucson is not far behind at #4. Does the 5 year/60,000-mile warranty comfort consumers? Not always.


Jeep takes the crown on being the only automaker with three of the top 18 lemons: Cherokee (#6), Grand Cherokee (#11), and Renegade (#13).


Kia is consistently ranked one of the top automakers on the reliability index. Their cushy 5 year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty is also a plus over competitors like Honda.


Lexus offers one of the longest powertrain warranties: 6 years or 70,000 miles.

Mercedes Benz

Don’t be seduced by “German engineering.” The Mercedes CLA is #9 biggest lemon on the road today, and the GLC is #8. They also make one of the hardest cars to repair, the G Class. The Reliability Index ranked them 30th out of 40. The warranty covers you for 4 years or 50,000 miles.


The Nissan Titan is the #15 worst lemon on the road. Yet another source ranked the Nissan GT-R as one of the least reliable cars on the road as well. Neither of these findings is made better by the 3 year/36,00- mile warranty.


Subaru also offers a bare bones 3 year/36,000-mile warranty.


Their Model S is the third biggest lemon on the road today and their Model X is #16. Tesla’s bumper-to-bumper warranty is an acceptable 4 years/50,000 miles, but their powertrain warranty (8 years) is one of the longest available.


Despite a meaty 6 year/72,000-mile warranty, Volkswagen produced 0.6574 lemons per every 1,000 cars they sell. Unfortunately, the average amount of lemon law claims per 1,000 cars sold is way lower at just 0.1670.

Are You Entitled to Compensation For Your Lemon?

If your vehicle’s manufacturer does not promptly offer you a replacement or refund for a known lemon, you should contact California lemon law attorney Valerie G. Fernandez Campbell. We will file a lawsuit seeking the money or replacement that you’re legally entitled to. The manufacturer may settle with you outside of court, or your case may go to trial. Attorney Valerie G. Fernandez Campbell can tell you more about the process in your own lemon law case.

If you win a lemon law claim, you can choose to either replace your vehicle at no cost to you or receive a full refund. This is your choice, not the “manufacturers”. In a lemon lawsuit, you are also entitled to ask for a refund of all the additional costs the lemon caused, such as towing and rental cars.

How Can a Lemon Law Lawyer Help You File A Claim In California?

Retaining an experienced attorney will ensure you do not waive any of your rights. Even if you would prefer to “settle” and just get “some of your payments back,” working with an attorney will help you negotiate the process. And, again, this is all done at no cost to you, as our services will be paid for by the manufacturer.

  • File all necessary paperwork on your behalf
  • Investigate the claim
  • Investigate your vehicle
  • Correspond with the manufacturer
  • Negotiate a refund
  • Take care of the entire process without hitches

When a lot of cars are mass produced by a motor vehicle manufacturer, the occasional mistake can be made, overlooked or missed by inspectors. Sometimes, a bad design can even be put into production.

If you’ve bought a car, truck, motorcycle or other motor vehicle and you got one of the “mistakes,” you have a way in California to reverse your bad luck. The State of California recognizes that their help is needed to defend your warranty rights against the large and powerful manufacturers of motor vehicles.

They are state and federal consumer protection laws that were enacted to protect consumers from the reluctance of motor vehicle manufacturers to treat consumers in a fair and honorable manner. When your manufacturer cannot honor their warranties and treat consumers in a fair and reasonable fashion, the laws provide protection to those who have bought or leased these motor vehicles. The laws allow manufacturers a reasonable number of repair attempts, but manufacturers who fail to properly repair the motor vehicle must either replace the vehicle or refund the consumer’s money. The defect or problem with the motor vehicle must be substantial and the manufacturer must be given an opportunity to repair.

Reade Post

If and your records show your motor vehicle is a lemon, you can receive three things:
1. A replacement vehicle or cash refund.
2. All your monthly payments, registration costs, taxes paid and down payment.
3. Your reasonable costs and expenses such as towing costs, rental costs and your reasonable fees and costs for an attorney.

The lemon law protection begins after the first time it was taken to the dealer to correct or repair the problem. If you delay reporting the problem of the motor vehicle to the dealer, the manufacturer is entitled to deduct a usage fee for the miles you used the vehicle without any problems. This means the manufacturer can request that you pay a usage fee for the good or trouble free miles you drove the motor vehicle before you reported the problem.

Manufacturers can offer to replace your vehicle with a new model just like your current “lemon” vehicle. If you loved the vehicle, but wish it was not a “lemon” you would receive the replacement model and your loan or lease payment would remain the same. You can be charged for any use you made of the vehicle before you reported the problem to a dealer and any taxes or fees that are owed.

Solving a lemon law claim can take as little as 30 days. However, some lemon law cases are complicated and often take 3-6 months to complete.

Most lemon law attorneys charge contingency fees at the rate of between 30-40%. Although California lemon law requires a manufacturer to pay the legal fee after the consumer wins the case, it’s essential to understand the breakdown.

If the used vehicle you purchased is no longer covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty, your car may still qualify as a lemon if the dealer you purchased it from included their own warranty (usually a 30, 60, or 90-day warranty, if anything).

The California Lemon Law protects consumers who purchase cars that don’t function properly. It limits how many repair attempts a manufacturer can make before they are required to buy back or replace the vehicle. If a car with a manufacturer’s warranty continues to have issues after several repairs, the manufacturer must offer a refund or a replacement.

Read Post

California’s Lemon Law protects consumers when a vehicle has a persistent problem that hasn’t been resolved despite a reasonable number of repair attempts. This is known as the Lemon Law Presumption.

For the Lemon Law Presumption to apply, the following conditions must be met:

  • The issues with your vehicle are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • The defect first appeared within 18 months of delivery or within 18,000 miles, whichever comes first. (If major defects occur after this period, consult an attorney.)
  • The defect diminishes the vehicle’s use, value, or safety, and wasn’t caused by abuse.
  • If required by the warranty or owner’s manual, you have informed the manufacturer of the issue (preferably in writing).
