Ford is a storied American brand with a long history of making quality cars. From the revolutionary Model-T to the iconic Mustang, Ford has undoubtedly made its mark on the automotive industry. Not surprisingly, thousands of consumers are loyal to the Ford brand in the United States. These consumers rightfully expect that they are getting a high-quality product when they purchase or lease a Ford—especially if the vehicle has a warranty. Sadly, many consumers are surprised to learn that their Ford vehicle could be a lemon.
Does the Lemon Law in California Apply to Ford Vehicles?
The state of California has enacted a consumer-friendly lemon law that provides consumers with certain protections. If you purchased a Ford vehicle with a warranty and have experienced significant problems with it, you may be covered by the lemon law. These conditions must be met to qualify for relief under the lemon law:
- The new or used vehicle was purchased or leased from a dealership.
- You have reported a significant problem with the vehicle to the dealer or manufacturer.
- The dealer or manufacturer has made multiple repair attempts, but the vehicle still has a problem.
- The problem is not minor, which means it affects the Ford’s use, safety, or value.
If these conditions are met, the vehicle is covered by the lemon law. This means that the law requires Ford to issue a refund or provide you with a replacement vehicle at no cost to you.
Which Ford Models Have Been Reported As Lemons?
Several Ford models have shown problems that frustrated owners have reported as lemons. Ford models that could potentially qualify as lemons under California’s lemon law include:
- Fusion Hybrid
- Focus Electric
- Focus ST

What If Your Ford Is No Longer Covered By A Warranty?
The law typically only applies to repairs that were covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. But, what if your vehicle’s warranty has expired? Are you stuck with the lemon? Not necessarily. Ford consumers are still covered if the problems started while the vehicle was under warranty and the manufacturer was given an opportunity to make repairs before the warranty expired. In this case, consumers can still seek relief under the California lemon law even if their warranty has expired by the time they file the claim.
