California lemon laws cover nonconformities of vehicles that are “new” and used or bought for use for personal, family, or household purposes. They also cover vehicles that are under 10,000 pounds and are used for business purposes by any person or business who has registered no more than five vehicles in the state of California. The vehicle must have been purchased or leased in the state of California or by a full-time active duty member of the Armed Forces who was stationed or residing in California at the time of purchase or lease or at the time the claim is filed. The law does not, however, cover motor homes, motorcycles, or vehicles not registered under the Vehicle Code. Consumers covered include those who have bought or leased the vehicle, a lessee for more than four months, and those to whom the vehicle is transferred during the written warranty duration, as well as all others applicable to enforce the warranty.
