What is a Lemon under California's Lemon Law?

Your car is legally considered to be a “lemon” if the manufacturer has made 4 or more attempts to repair the same problem or your car has been out of service for at least 30 days while under repair for any number of problems. You must have brought your car in for repairs within the car’s first 18,000 miles or within 18-months of receiving the vehicle or within the warranty period, which can be longer.

If the problem is one that substantially impairs the car’s value, poses a risk of death or serious bodily injury, then the number of attempts to repair it is only 2. In other words, the more serious the problem, the less number of repairs are required.

Should you car fit any of these conditions, your car is legally presumed to be a lemon that the manufacturer can only rebut by claiming that:

  • there has not been a reasonable number of attempts to repair the problem
  • the problem is not covered by the warranty
  • the problem does not substantially impair the car’s value, use or pose a serious safety risk

What Vehicles are Covered?

The California Lemon Law, called the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Law, covers not only passenger vehicles but trucks, vans, the chassis or cab of a motorhome bought for personal use and some vehicles used primarily for business.

There are Other Possible Remedies Available to You

If the state Lemon Law is not applicable to your case, we will determine if other remedies are available such as the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act or the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. If there is a breach of warranty, you could be compensated.

Remember-There is no out-of pocket cost to you and you pay no attorney’s fees

Manufacturers hate this law. With an attorney on your side, you can have your remedy and the problem resolved. Even if the repairs are for a relatively minor defect, there may be something peculiar to your car or situation where we can help you.

Let our Santa Barbara County Lemon Law lawyers help you determine if your car’s history or problems and repairs fits within the conditions of the law. Call us toll free at 1-888-754-9875 for your free evaluation.


About Santa Barbara County

Santa Barbara County, officially the County of Santa Barbara, is a county located in the southern portion of the U.S. state of California, on the Pacific coast. As of 2010 the county had a population of 423,895. The county seat is Santa Barbara and the largest city is Santa Maria. The county is part of the Tech Coast.

The Santa Barbara County area, including the Northern Channel Islands, was first settled by Native Americans at least 13,000 years ago. Evidence for a Paleoindian presence has been found in the form of a fluted Clovis-like point found in the 1980s along the western Santa Barbara Coast, as well as the remains of Arlington Springs Man found on Santa Rosa Island in the 1960s. For thousands of years, the area was home to the Chumash tribe of Native Americans, complex hunter-gatherers who lived along the coast and in interior valleys leaving rock art in many locations including Painted Cave.

Europeans first contacted the Chumash in AD 1542, when three Spanish ships under the command of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo explored the area. The Santa Barbara Channel received its name from Spanish explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno when he sailed over the channel waters in 1602; he entered the channel on December 4, the day of the feast of Santa Barbara. Although Spanish ships associated with the Manila Galleon trade probably contacted the Chumash intermittently during this "protohistoric" period, the Spanish first colonized Santa Barbara County in AD 1769, when the DeAnza expedition explored the area and laid plans to establish a series of missions and presidios (forts).

Santa Barbara County was one of the 26 original counties of California, formed in 1850 at the time of statehood. The county's territory was later divided to create Ventura County in 1872.
