Many people mistakenly think that lemon laws require three or more repair attempts during the first year of ownership. Each law sets its own requirements.
Fortunately, California’s lemon law provides some of the broadest protections to auto consumers in the nation.
A: No. In California, you have up to four years after the warranty expires by mileage or years to file a claim. Repair History:
A: Your car may be considered a lemon if you bring it to the dealer as few as two times for repair of a defect. One of those time s must be within the warranty period.
A: No. California’s lemon law may presume that your car is a lemon if it has been serviced for more than 30 days, consecutive or not.

If you win your lemon law case, the manufacturer can make restitution in several ways.
Repurchase, or buyback, is the most common option, where the manufacturer will compensate you for your down payment, monthly payments, registration, and possibly some additional damages. The manufacturer will then register the vehicle in its own name and mark the certificate as a “lemon law buyback.” The manufacturer may be entitled to make a deduction for miles driven prior to the first repair attempt.
It may seem intimidating to assert your rights against a big manufacturer. However, the law really is on your side. For example, if a car manufacturer unreasonably rejects buyback when it is reasonable, you may be entitled to a civil penalty of up to three times the value of your car.
