As you probably know, the California lemon law has nothing to do with the sour yellow citrus fruit. The lemon law is a consumer protection statute enacted by the legislature in Sacramento that applies throughout this State, and which requires automobile manufactures to buyback defective cars and trucks that are still under warranty if they cannot be repaired within a reasonable number of attempts. The California lemon law (like the lemon laws in many other states) covers used cars as well as new automobiles, so long as the vehicle was sold with a warranty and the defect or mechanical problem first occurred before the warranty expired.
