Everybody has received a lemon at some point in their lives - a lemon is a term for an item, such as a car, that, for whatever reason, has a number of problems with it.
In Grade 4, I got a bike for my birthday that had to be a lemon - I was taking the stupid thing in for repairs every month or so.
Back then, I knew nothing about lemon laws. These are the legal rights of a citizen of the United States (and probably elsewhere) to return a vehicle by virtue of it being a lemon. Unfortunately, we don't have them in Canada, but we do have some other consumer protection.
Amyways, for my American readers, I looked up some stuff about lemon laws in California., which states,
"If the manufacturer or its representative in this state, such as an authorized dealer, is unable to service or repair a new motor vehicle to meet the terms of an express written warranty after a reasonable number of repair attempts, the manufacturer is required promptly to replace the vehicle or return the purchase price to the lessee or buyer."
The manufacturer will also cover all costs incurred by the consumer, which includes the cost of financing, or any minor repairs, towing costs, etc.
Any vehicles that have fewer than 18,000 miles on the odometer, and are still broken after numerous repair attempts, are eligible to be returned under lemon law in California.
There are a number of specialists in California who can provide a free consultation for lemon law claimants. Happy claiming!
Pro tip: Buy a new car that looks like a lemon, return it at 17,999 miles - you've just been paid to have a car for all that time.
