The lemons that our Los Angeles lemon law attorneys are familiar with are the vehicles that are knowingly manufactured or sold with defects.
What Makes a Vehicle a Lemon?
If you’ve recently bought a vehicle and find yourself constantly taking it in for repairs or experiencing problems, it is very possible that you purchased a lemon. In California, there are statutes that protect you if you inadvertently purchased a lemon.
According to California law, a vehicle is considered a lemon if the following happens:
- 2 attempts to fix the vehicle at a licensed repair shop that didn’t fix the problem
- 4 attempts to fix the vehicle by the dealer or manufacturer that didn’t fix the problem
- Your vehicle is still within warranty and has been inoperable for more than 30 days
