What Qualifies as a “Lemon”?
According to California law, a vehicle is considered a lemon if it has shown major defects within 18 months of the vehicle’s delivery to the buyer, or 18,000 miles on the odometer, whichever is first. Under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, a car qualifies as a lemon if:
- After being directly notified by the vehicle owner, the manufacturer has attempted to repair a warranty problem at least 2 times. The warranty problem also has the potential to result in death or serious injury if the vehicle is driven.
- The manufacturer has tried to repair the same warranty problem a minimum of 4 times.
- The vehicle has been out of service for more than 30 days for manufacturer repairs.
- The vehicle issues were not the result of abuse by the owner.
Lemon law can also extend to vehicles that were not purchased new, if they have a qualifying warranty that covers the vehicle defects you are experiencing.

What Compensation Could You Expect?
When a car qualifies as a lemon the manufacturer is held responsible. They must either replace your vehicle, or refund you for the purchase price of your vehicle. Depending on your situation, you may also qualify for compensation for incidental damages caused by the defective vehicle. If, for example, you were in an accident because of an unresolved issue with your new car, the manufacturer may be responsible for compensating you for your physical and emotional distress.
