California’s Lemon Law, the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, provides a remedy to consumers who are stuck with a defective vehicle, defective RV, defective motor home, defective boat or a defective motorcycle.
Generally, the California Lemon Law applies when the repair facility has been unable to repair the same defect in a defective vehicle within a reasonable number of attempts within the warranty period.
The California Lemon Law also requires that a defective vehicle be repaired within a certain time frame regardless of the number of attempts. For qualifying vehicles, the vehicle manufacturer or distributor must give the consumer his or her money back and pay off the outstanding loan balance or replace the vehicle with the same or similar model.
