How Does California’s Lemon Law Work in Los Angeles?
California Lemon Law covers new, previously owned, leased, and rental cars. Provided that the defective vehicle is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty or an extended warranty agreement, the automobile manufacturer or dealership is required to perform repairs to fix the defect.
The California Lemon Law process does not stop after the first repair attempt. The state’s Lemon Law allows dealers and auto manufacturers to perform a ‘reasonable number’ of repair attempts. Suppose the nonconformity needs to be corrected by the car company or an authorized dealer. In that case, the car owner may file a Lemon Law claim to recover a replacement vehicle and a refund. Or cash compensation. In some Lemon Law cases, the manufacturer pays to buyback defective vehicles from car owners.

What is the Tanner Consumer Protection Act?
California’s Lemon laws are the summation of the Tanner Consumer Protection Act and the Song-Beverly Act.
The Song-Beverly Act states that a manufacturer that offers a manufacturer’s warranty must have the network in place to perform the necessary repairs for their products. The Act includes cars, boats, and consumer electronics within its scope. It expressly excludes clothing, food, and drink.
The Tanner Consumer Protection Act helps clarify some vague language of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.
Tanner defines a ‘reasonable number of repair attempts’ for vehicles covered by a manufacturer’s warranty as:
- The defective vehicle has been out of service for more than 30 days since the car was delivered to its owner.
- Dealers or manufacturers have failed to fix the same nonconformity four or more times.
- Manufacturers and dealers have made two repair attempts to fix an issue that poses a serious injury risk to drivers or passengers.
