What Motor Vehicles Qualify Under California Lemon Law?

Different vehicles on the road

California lemon laws provide consumer protection for those who have purchased or leased a defective motor vehicle. When a manufacturer can’t repair a vehicle after a reasonable number of attempts, and the defect is substantial, the manufacturer must replace it or refund the consumer’s money. One of the many questions that clients ask is which type of motor vehicles qualify under California lemon law--continue reading to find out.

Motor Vehicles that Qualify Under Lemon Law

Under California lemon law, all types of motor vehicles qualify for protection as long as they are purchased or leased for personal, family, or household purposes. Below is a list of the motor vehicles that are protected under California lemon law:

  • Motorcycles
  • Boats
  • Motor homes
  • RVs
  • Cars
  • Pickup trucks
  • Vans
  • SUVs

It’s important to know that the law doesn’t cover motor homes designed or used for human habitation or motorcycles used exclusively for off-roading.

California Lemon Law & Warranty

In order for your motor vehicle to qualify under California lemon law, it still needs to be in the warranty period. It needs to have at least two or more attempts by the manufacturer to repair a warranty problem that could result in death or serious injury. However, if your motor vehicle is out of warranty, you could still be covered. This would be the case if the first repair attempt for the problem or defect occurred during the warranty period. You will need an experienced attorney to analyze your situation to determine if you have a case.
