Does the California Lemon Law Apply to Used Vehicles?
A common question is whether a used vehicle can qualify for the California lemon law.
This is a highly debated topic. So much so, that it is currently up for review before the California Supreme Court. As for now, consider the following:
If a vehicle is purchased “Certified Pre-Owned”, and would otherwise qualify for the lemon law, then the vehicle should still qualify.
If the vehicle is purchased “as is”, then the vehicle does not qualify.
If the vehicle is purchased without a warranty, then the vehicle does not qualify.
However, used vehicles may qualify under other causes of action. Contact us to discuss whether or not you still have a case.
