Motorcycles and California’s Lemon Law

However, any defect can threaten your safety and put not only your safety but also your investment at risk. In California there are good news- California’s Lemon Law protects purchasers of motorcycles that have problems under the manufacturer’s warranty. The law applies to vehicles registered for use on the highways. The law does not protect vehicles that are used exclusively as off-road vehicle (ex Dirt bikes). The Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act – California’s Lemon Law – doesn’t only apply to automobiles, but it also applies to motorcycles as well. While each state has its own definition of a “new” motorcycle, if you’ve owned it less than two years or have driven it fewer than 18,000 miles (whichever comes first), you’re generally covered by Lemon Laws.At DTLA Law Group we will do everything possible to help you recover the money you paid for your motorcycle or get a replacement.

You as a motorcycle buyer are entitled to a replacement or refund if there’s any defect that has not been fixed after a reasonable number of repair attempts and is still under the manufacturer’s warranty. Contact us right away. You can trust our attorneys to help you achieve a successful outcome.

How to Determine if Your Motorcycle is a Lemon?

It is important to take into account the following crucial points to determine if your motorcycle is a Lemon. Any type of motorcycle can be a Lemon, from the biggest names to the less known ones, from Harley Davidson, Suzuki, Ducati, to more local ones like American Eagle. If you purchase a bike that does not perform like it is meant to, or otherwise does not meet the quality expectations as compared to the same or similar bikes, then it is possible you have a Lemon, and therefore the manufacturer is legally required to grant you a refund or provide you with a replacement motorcycle.

The points to look out for are:

  • The bike stalls or cuts out
  • Leaking oil, water, fuel, coolant, or other fluids
  • Engine issues and failure, loss of power, or sluggish performance
  • Vibration in the transmission or brakes
  • Crank shaft issues
  • Repeated check engine and other warning lights turning on
  • Gas tank leaks
  • There’s a lack of power
  • There are problems with the electrical systems and features
  • There are problems with the steering, tires
  • Overheating or problems with brakes

What to do Next

  • Keep bills and receipts whenever you tried to get your bike fixed.
  • Take pictures
  • Take notes
  • Keep a record of any incidents that have occurred during riding that might be linked to the defect

Remember, proof is important! And the more proof you have, the more we can help you quickly resolve the issue and get you a deserved refund.

It is very important for consumers to keep as much documentation as possible. Many motorcycle repair shops provide far less documentation than facilities that repair cars.
