What To Know About The California Lemon Law

How do I know if I have a lemon car?

As per our guide on the California Lemon Law, you may have a lemon car if your car has problems that affect its use, value or safety, these problems are covered by your manufacturer’s warranty, and you have given your dealership or repair shop a reasonable number of opportunities to repair your vehicle.

The California Lemon Law does not set a specific benchmark of repairs required before you can file a lemon law claim. However, your car can be presumed a lemon if within 18 months or 18,000 miles, a defect has not been fixed within four repair attempts, or if it has not been fixed within two repair attempts despite potentially causing death or bodily injury. A car may also be presumed a lemon if, within that timespan, the car is in the repair shop for more than 30 days cumulatively.

Keep in mind that you do not have to abide by the 18-month or 18,000-mile rule in order to have a lemon law claim. The number of repair attempts required to pursue a lemon law claim is determined on a case by case basis.

What do I do if I have a lemon car in San Francisco?

If you have a lemon car and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, take your car to the dealership or repair shop for repairs. At the end of each repair visit, make sure you receive a document called a “repair order” or “work order.” These repair orders are legal documents that show the concerns you reported, the work performed on your vehicle and the associated costs (if it was not covered by your warranty).

These repair orders are essential to any lemon law claim. In addition, you should gather documents related to your ownership or lease of the vehicle, as well as other expenses you incurred due to your vehicle problem (such as rental cars or towing costs).

Then, get a free consultation from a lemon law attorney in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our Lemon Law Clients

"After I purchased my vehicle in 2013 from a CarMax dealership, I received multiple letters from various lemon law attorneys regarding my 2012 Ford Focus. After a year of receiving these letters, I finally decided to give Knight Law Group a phone call. I am SO GLAD that I did! From the very beginning (April 2016), they provided wonderful customer service in everything. They expressed what I needed to determine if I was eligible for a lawsuit, and after sending over my MANY service records from Ford, they determined that I was a great candidate to represent. We received a wonderful outcome. I am very grateful that I decided to call Knight Law Group.

If you have a car that could be classified as a lemon, CALL THEM! You won't regret it!"

"Knight Law Group sent me mail stating I might have a lemon. It turns out that not only did I have a lemon, I had a rotten one. It was a 2011 VW GTI and the trouble started shortly after leaving the lot in my brand new car. Knight Law Group helped me through every step of the process. Knight Law Group took my case and helped me get the money I deserved! Trust the process… they know exactly what they are doing! Thank you so much!!!"
