California’s Lemon Law
California’s lemon law applies to new vehicles repaired under the manufacturer’s warranty. In some cases, consumers are protected under the lemon law after the warranty has expired as long as they presented their vehicle for repairs while the warranty was still in effect. Consumers who have purchased or leased a Chevy can file a claim under California’s lemon law. Any motor vehicle, including a Chevy, can be considered a lemon under California’s lemon law.
When a vehicle has a defect or multiple problems that satisfy California lemon law requirements, the vehicle owner may qualify for a buyback or a replacement. When an automobile is defective, the vehicle maker and its dealer has the obligation to repair the issue. After they’ve made a reasonable number of repair attempts, the owner can file a claim against them if the vehicle still isn’t fixed.
The number of repairs varies in each case but typically requires a minimum of two attempts at repair. If the vehicle still prohibits dependable and safe transportation after two or more repairs, the vehicle may be considered a lemon. All of the following types of Chevy models are covered under California’s lemon law:
- Chevrolet Avalanche
- Chevrolet Aveo
- Chevrolet Blazer
- Chevrolet Bolt EV
- Chevrolet Camaro
- Chevrolet Caprice
- Chevrolet Captiva Sport
- Chevrolet City Express

Is Your Chevy a Lemon?

We will provide you with a free case evaluation and help you understand whether you’re eligible for protection under California’s lemon law. If you answer yes to the following questions, there’s a good chance that your vehicle may be a lemon:
- You’ve given the manufacturer at least two chances to repair your vehicle
- The problem was not resolved
- The Chevy is covered by the warranty or was covered when the problem started
- The problem negatively affects the value, safety, or use of the vehicle
Under California law, consumers only have four years to bring a lemon law claim. The sooner you discuss your case with an attorney, the better.
How Does the Chevy Lemon Law Buyback Process Work?
You will need to show that you have made a reasonable number of attempts to have a Chevy dealership repair your vehicle to prevail in a lemon law claim. It’s important that you keep documentation of all of the repairs on your lemon vehicle, such as receipts and work orders from each of your repair appointments. You can get those from the dealership if you don’t have them by simply asking for the records. There isn’t an exact number of what constitutes reasonable repairs, but two is the minimum number. If your car is still experiencing defects after two or more repair attempts, you may have a lemon.
Additionally, suppose your Chevy has been at a dealership for repairs for the same defect for 30 days or more since you bought it. In that case, your vehicle is probably a lemon, and Chevy will likely be required to buy back your vehicle or provide you with a new vehicle.

- Steering issues
- The engine won’t start
