The California Lemon Law
All cars must be under a Factory warranty for a given period of time after purchase. This will apply to both purchased and leased vehicles and covers many of the parts that are required for the car to operate and provide safety and should last for a longer duration of time.
If defects are found during the period that the car is covered under the Factory warranty a lemon law claim can be filed. To be entitled to compensation by having a vehicle qualify under the California Lemon Laws, your MINI Cooper's defect will have to meet one of the following requirements listed below.
- The vehicle must have been out of use or service for 30 cumulative days or more while it was under the time frame of the factory warranty.
- While under the factory warranty the MINI Cooper was taken in for the same defect four or more times.
- Two or more repair attempts under the factory warranty had to be made due to defects of safety that could have led to death or great bodily injury.
