How Long Does a Lemon Law Case Take?

California lemon laws protect consumers who purchase or lease warranty vehicles with defects that were never disclosed by the dealership. California lemon law requires manufacturers to buy back or replace a vehicle that has a reasonable number of attempted repairs. Since lemon law cases can be complex, individuals often wonder how long a lemon law case takes to complete. Our California lemon law attorneys break it down for you.

How Long Does It Take to Complete a Lemon Law Case?

Typically, a lemon law claim is resolved in as little as 30 days. However, since lemon law cases can be complicated, it often takes three to six months to be fully resolved. Some cases can take longer if car manufacturers refuse to repurchase or replace a lemon vehicle. When the manufacturer refuses a case, car buyers are forced to go through litigation to receive compensation for their faulty vehicle.

Thankfully, when cases are forced to go through litigation, California’s lemon law requires the car company to pay the consumer’s attorney fees and costs if the consumer wins the case. This makes it accessible for individuals to seek compensation for their lemon vehicle, even if they lack the funds for an attorney.
