Trucks and Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are special. The usefulness and convenience they provide is important to the way many individuals and families manage their day-to-day lives. Buyers and people who lease trucks and SUVs are protected under the same state and federal laws that protect consumers who purchase and lease cars.
At Strategic Legal Practices, we have helped many truck and SUV owners get relief through the California Lemon Law. If you think you have a lemon, we may be able to help you recover the thousands of dollars you have paid for the purchase or lease of a defective truck or SUV.

How Lemon Law Works for Consumers and Motor Vehicles
Under both state and federal law, a purchaser or lessee of a vehicle has various legal rights if the vehicle does not perform as expected under the manufacturer’s express warranty. For example, the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, also known as the “California Lemon Law”, requires manufactures to repurchase or replace vehicles that their dealers were unable to repair after a reasonable number of repair attempts. Typically, a car, truck, or SUV may be considered a “Lemon” if:
- The truck or SUV has been in the repair shop for a cumulative total of thirty or more days in the first eighteen (18) months or 18,000 miles, or
- The dealer was unable to repair a serious safety problem with your truck or SUV after two or more attempts, or
- The dealer was unable to repair any other defect after three or more attempts
It is important to note that the above conditions are not always necessary or sufficient. It is best that you speak with an knowledgeable consumer rights attorney for legal advice about your truck or SUV’s issues.
