Does The Lemon Law Apply To Minor Defects, Or Only Significant Defects?

The Song­Beverly Act applies to defects which constitute a substantial impairment to the use, value or safety of the vehicle to the owner or lessee. Therefore, inconveniences (static or poor reception in the radio, for example) normally do not make a Lemon Law claim. Serious problems with brakes, transmission, engine function, SRS/airbag, inoperable air conditioning, persistent water leaking, engine oil or transmission oil leaks, overheating, CHECK ENGINE, to cite a few, are examples of Lemon Law impairment to use, value, or safety of the vehicle. There are other federal laws that further expand on what is considered to be a defect that constitutes replacement of purchase price or a refund of monies spent.
