For those of you in California, keep track of exactly how long Toyota has your vehicle.

A: There is no set number. However, California’s Lemon Law Presumption contains these guidelines for determining when a “reasonable” number of repair attempts have been made:
  • The manufacturer or dealer hasn’t fixed the same problem after four or more attempts.
  • Your vehicle’s problems could cause death or serious bodily injury if it is driven, and the manufacturer or dealer has made at least two unsuccessful repair attempts.
  • The vehicle has been in the shop for more than 30 days (not necessarily in a row) for repair of any problems covered by its warranty. This is called the Lemon Law Presumption.
I know of a few Bolt owners in CA who were able to get them to buy back the vehicle a couple of years after original purchase, for nearly what was paid for it, then they were offered a new one at a signficant discount and it worked out well for them to switch to a newer one (well, that one got recalled too, but that's a different issue).

This can work out to be an advantage for you, as long as you claim before the manufacturer's warranty expires and all issues were first reported (or discovered) during the warranty period.

Just sayin'... maybe these early AWD owners can end up with the next model which might have a Panasonic battery. ;)
