Recently Senate Bill 1718 was signed by Governor Gray Davis.
This bill alters Lemon Law protections for new vehicle owners and
small businesses. It modifies Lemon Law coverage by reducing the
number of failed repair attempts from four to two on defects likely to
cause death or serious bodily injury before a vehicle is considered a
lemon. It also expands Lemon Law protection to those vehicles
with a manufacturer's weight rating of less than 10,000 pounds that
are bought or used primarily for business.
