What is a lemon law?
Although vehicles are meant to be problem-free the first couple of years after purchase, this is not always the case. Lemon law establishes specific consumer rights for those who have had recurring problems with their vehicle. Each state has different laws and regulations in place that establishes the consumers’ rights. But, generally, a consumer who has purchased a new vehicle has the right to file a claim against the automobile manufacturer for their repetitive trips to the service center.
Although not common, thousands of people experience defective vehicles each year in the United States. In the event you believe that your vehicle should be considered a “lemon,” give our lemon law attorneys a call today to discuss your case.

What is the statute of limitations for lemon law in California?
The statute of limitations is a time limit created by California law that determines exactly when you should file your claim or lawsuit. Each lawsuit depends on the circumstances of what you have experienced. For lemon law claims, California requires that there be a four-year deadline to file your lemon claim. However, the clock of four years does not start ticking at the time you purchased or leased your vehicle. The four-year time limit begins, when you reasonably discovered the potential defect in your vehicle during the warranty period. In other words, The clock essentially starts ticking when the automobile owner experiences their first problems with their vehicle. That is why staying on top of dates on when you received service for your vehicle is the most important. This is yet another reason to contact a lemon law attorney to determine whether your vehicle qualifies under California lemon law.
Does lemon law also cover used cars?
The California Lemon Law provides coverage not only for new vehicles but also for used, “pre-owned” refurbished vehicles, as long as they have an active warranty from the manufacturer and the vehicle was purchased from an authorized dealership.
What are the different types of warranties in California?
- Express warranties: these are direct warranties that the car manufacturer and dealership are making to the purchaser, claiming that the car has no problems whatsoever.
- Implied warranties: even if the dealership did not expressly tell you that the car is covered under a warranty, it may still fall under an implied warranty of merchantability. An implied warranty of merchantability is not in writing, instead it is a promise that the vehicle is meant to be drivable.

- Having a Lemon Law attorney will make the process so much easier and simpler. It could be very frustrating to have a car that is constantly breaking down. On top of all of that, you may have to then make sure that you properly file a claim against the car manufacturer in court.

Who pays the attorney fees and costs under California lemon law?
Under California law, if the consumer who filed the lawsuit is successful in their claim, the automobile manufacturer is required to pay the Lemon Law attorney fees, along with any other court and administrative costs.

Does Nevada have lemon laws?
Nevada also has Lemon laws that provide protections to vehicle owners and purchasers. This can be seen under Nevada Revised Statutes Section 597.600 to 597.688. Under Nevada law, any vehicle that has a defect and impairs the driver’s ability to use the vehicle is a violation of an express warranty by the manufacturer.
In order for the vehicle to be considered a “lemon” in Nevada, the vehicle manufacturer must not be able to fix or repair the vehicle within 30 days. This time limitation is very specific, and requires the automobile manufacturer to try to repair the vehicle four times within 30 days. This could get very tricky, especially when figuring out dates and attempts to fix the vehicle. Give us a call today to discuss your lemon law claim in Nevada.
