When Is a Vehicle a Lemon in California?

To be classified as a “lemon” in California, your vehicle, whether purchased or leased, should still be covered by a warranty when you seek repairs. This warranty can be any type the factory or manufacturer provides, such as a powertrain or certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty. However, it’s worth noting that dealership “extended warranties” are typically not included in this category.

Furthermore, you must demonstrate that you have made a “reasonable” number of attempts to repair your vehicle. The California lemon law does not specify a particular number of repair attempts but outlines various scenarios that might warrant a claim. These scenarios include:

  • After two or more attempts, the dealer failed to repair a significant safety defect, or,
  • The dealer couldn’t resolve a non-saftey related defect within after three to four or more repair attempts, depending on the defect, or,
  • If the dealer and the manufacturer cannot fix the vehicle

It’s important to note that these scenarios are not exhaustive, and you may still have a valid California lemon law claim under other circumstances. Ultimately, each claim is determined on a case-by-case basis, so consulting with a Lexus lemon law attorney is essential to assess whether your vehicle’s issue qualifies.
