Legal Definition of a New Vehicle

Legal Definition of a New Vehicle

The Lemon Law covers new motor vehicles, including:

1) A new vehicle bought or used primarily for personal, family, or household purposes.

2) A new vehicle with a gross vehicle weight under 10,000 pounds bought or used primarily for business purposes (provided the owner or business has no more than five vehicles registered in California).

3) The chassis, chassis cab, and propulsion portions of a motorhome.

4) A dealer-owned vehicle, a “demonstrator,” or other motor vehicle sold with a manufacturer’s new car warranty (such as a used vehicle).

5) Purchased and leased vehicles.

6) “New Motor Vehicle” does not include: - Any portion of a motor home designed, used, or maintained primarily for human habitation; or - A motorcycle or a motor vehicle which is not registered under the Vehicle Code because it is to be operated or used exclusively as an off-road vehicle
