If your vehicle has a repeated problem that a licensed dealership cannot fix, you may have a defective vehicle. In other words, you just may have a lemon.

If you find yourself stuck with a lemon, you do have some legal options.

Under the California Lemon Law, those who bought or leased defective vehicles from licensed dealerships in California can sue an auto manufacturer and receive some legal remedy.

The key item to note is that, before you take legal action against a manufacturer, you must give the manufacturer a chance to repair your vehicle.

A common myth about the California Lemon Law is that there is a set number of repairs needed to trigger a lemon law claim. There is no set number.

The California Lemon Law merely states that the manufacturer needs to be given a reasonable number of chances to fix your vehicle to warranty. What is considered reasonable will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
