California Lemon Law protects buyers and lessees from serious warranty defects that the dealer of the manufacturer cannot repair. In some cases, you may be entitled to a replacement or a refund for your vehicle.
The California lemon law (officially known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, found in California Civil Code sections 1790 et seq.) is designed to protect consumers who purchase or lease warranted motor vehicles. It states that if a vehicle maker is unable to repair a sold or leased vehicle to match its written warranty after a reasonable number of attempts, the maker must promptly replace or repurchase it.
The lemon law is a state law in California that defends consumers against the buying or leasing of non-conforming vehicles. To come under the lemon law protection in California, a vehicle must have been bought or leased for private, family or business use.
