Am I Eligible for Protection Under California’s Lemon Law?
Under California’s lemon law, consumers who have purchased a malfunctioning or defective vehicle and force manufacturers to pay them compensation. If their vehicle is eligible as a lemon, the consumer can force the manufacturer to purchase the Land Rover back or replace it with a new vehicle. The vehicle owner needs to show that non-conformities are present to qualify for protection.
Non-conformities are malfunctions or defects that substantially affect the vehicle and are covered under Land Rover’s manufacture warranty. The owner will also need to show that these malfunctions are defects that substantially impair the Land Rover’s use, value, or safety as a consumer. Any of the following models of Land Rovers may qualify as a lemon under California lemon law:
- Defender 90
- Defender 110
- Range Rover
- Range Rover Sport
- Range Rover Evoque
- Range Rover Evoque Convertible
- Range Rover
- Range Rover Velar
- Discovery Sport
- Range Rover Three Doors
- Land Rover LR2
- Land Rover LR3
- Land Rover LR4
Qualifying Warranties for Defective Land Rovers Under California’s Lemon Law
If your Land Rover is under a factory warranty, the California lemon law will apply in your case. You’ll need to show that you have attempted four or more different repairs on the same defect while under a factory warranty. Alternatively, you will need to show that you have attempted two repairs for a defect that can cause serious injury or death while under a factory warranty. Additionally, you may be eligible for coverage under California’s lemon laws if you cannot use your vehicle for at least 30 cumulative days while under the factory warranty.

Filing a Claim Against Land Rover
The California lemon law attorneys at Wirtz Law have the experience and resources necessary to investigate your case. We will determine whether your vehicle qualifies as a lemon and whether Jaguar has had a reasonable opportunity to make the required repairs. If you have a case under California’s lemon law, we will advocate for you to receive a new vehicle or for Jaguar to re-purchase your vehicle. We will help you pursue a lawsuit against Jaguar.
Land Rover Lemon Law Buyback
Jaguar must repurchase your lemon if it qualifies under California’s lemon laws. You also have the option to demand that Jaguar provide you with a replacement vehicle. For Jaguar to buy back your vehicle, you will need to have an appropriate warranty, establish that your vehicle has qualifying defects, and prove that you’ve given Jaguar a reasonable opportunity to repair the vehicle, which they failed to do.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim Against Land Rover?
You will have four years from the end of the written new car warranty to submit a lemon law claim. We don’t recommend waiting until the end of this four-year time frame to consult with an attorney. Jaguar may try to argue that the time limit began to run as soon as you realized you had purchased a lemon.
