Common Types of Lemon Law Issues in California

To qualify as a lemon, a vehicle must have a defect that impairs its usability, safety, or value. You must also make a “reasonable” number of attempts to get your vehicle repaired, and there are certain other basic eligibility criteria as well. Here are some common examples of issues that can make a vehicle a lemon under California law:

  • ABS system issues
  • Airbag and tire pressure sensor issues
  • Brake and accelerator pedal issues
  • “Check Engine” or other warning lights that won’t go away
  • Leaks, vibrations, noise, and other similar types of issues inside the cabin
  • Loss of power or other mechanical issues while driving
  • Electrical system and infotainment system issues
  • Engine and transmission problems
  • Overheating and cooling system leaks
  • Steering column and steering wheel issues

One of the keys to filing a successful lemon law claim in California is that the issue must be recurring. If the dealership can fix the issue after one or two attempts, you are not likely to have a lemon law claim. But, if you have been to the dealership multiple times and your vehicle still has the same issue, or if it has been at the dealership for an extended period of time, then a San Diego lemon law attorney may be able to help you.

Also, keep in mind that these are just examples. Even if your vehicle has one of these issues, this does not necessarily mean that your vehicle is a lemon. Your vehicle must still meet the specific requirements of California’s lemon law, and you must be able to demonstrate that you have met the other requirements for filing a timely claim as well.
