What Vehicles Are Covered by California's Lemon Law?

Serving Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, San Bernardino Counties & Nearby Areas of California

California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Protection Act protects purchasers or lessees of new vehicles that, after a reasonable number of repair attempts, still have problems that cannot or have not been fixed.

According to the California Office of the Attorney General website, under the Act, a “new” vehicle is not only a new car or truck, but the chassis, chassis cab and propulsion system on a motor home, and any vehicle sold with a manufacturer’s new car warranty. In fact, a two-year-old used car which is sold with one year remaining on the new car warranty is still a “new motor vehicle” under the Act.

Even though the coach or living quarters portion of a motor home and a motorcycle or off-road vehicle is not considered a motor vehicle under California law, you still have the right to receive your money back if the product does not conform to the warranty after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
