What Types of Problems Are Covered By the Lemon Law?
California’s lemon law safeguards consumers who buy or lease new or certified pre-owned vehicles with serious defects that the manufacturer or authorized dealer can’t fix after several attempts.
Here are some defects commonly covered under the California lemon law:
- Airbag defects
- Air conditioner mold
- Anti-lock braking system failure
- Body problems
- Brake pedal failure
- Defective seat belts
- Electrical problems
- Engine computer and cruise control malfunctions
- Fuel injection system leaks
- Fuel line defects that can cause fires
- Paint defects
- Power steering loss
- Premature brake/rotor wear
- Seat belt failure
- Steering pull
- Sudden acceleration and surge
- Uncontrolled acceleration
It’s important to note that not all defects automatically qualify for lemon law protection. The defect must substantially impair the vehicle’s use, value, or safety, and the manufacturer or dealer must have been given a reasonable opportunity to repair it. The issue must have also occurred within a certain time frame or mileage limit after the purchase or lease of the vehicle.
