Lemon Law Explained: Criteria for a Vehicle to Qualify as a Lemon

Lemon Law Explained

Lemon Law in San Francisco is a legal framework that protects buyers of vehicles with substantial defects that affect their use, value, or safety. For a vehicle to be considered a “lemon,” it must have a defect that considerably affects its performance, safety, or market value.

Qualifying Vehicles for California Lemon Law

  • California Lemon Law covers most passenger vehicles weighing less than 10,000 lbs.
  • Cars, pick-up trucks, vans, and SUVs are included in the coverage.
  • Additional conditions must be met to qualify for lemon status.

Defects and Requirements

  • A manufacturer must be given several chances to repair the defect.
  • If the defect remains unresolved, filing a Lemon Law claim is likely possible.
  • A Lemon Law claim can be filed irrespective of the number of repair attempts if the vehicle remains in the repair shop for over 30 days.


Qualifying Warranties for Lemon Law Claims

Qualifying Warranties for Lemon Law Claims

  1. Lemon Law claims require the defect to have been covered by the original warranty.
  2. The warranty must have been in effect when the vehicle was at least initially taken in for repairs.
  3. Even if the warranty has expired, it must have been active during the initial repair attempt to qualify.
  4. Reporting a defect to the manufacturer after the expired warranty may not be eligible for Lemon Law protection.


Time Limitations for Filing a Lemon Law Claim

In California, the Lemon Law allows up to four years from when the warranty expires to file a claim. Filing a Lemon Law claim as soon as possible is highly recommended to maximize the chances of obtaining the best possible outcome for your case.


San Francisco Lemon Law Compensation: What Are Your Rights?

The San Francisco Lemon Law, or the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, compensates consumers who have purchased a defective vehicle. If a car fits the criteria to be labeled a “lemon,” the manufacturer is compelled to provide the buyer with a refund or a replacement (replacements are rare). Additionally, the Lemon Law reimburses expenses related to the lemon, including repair costs, rental car fees, and other related expenses. Sometimes, consumers may also be awarded damages for the inconvenience and frustration of dealing with a lemon. It is worth noting that manufacturers are obligated to cover the attorney fees of consumers, which means that individuals can seek legal representation without facing additional costs.
