This video is a general overview of the presumption theory under the California Lemon Law - in plain terms if the vehicle exhibits the same defect 4 times or more or is in the shop for more than 30 days (non-consecutive is acceptable) then the law shifts the burden on the manufacturer. It becomes the manufacturer's responsibility to disprove that the vehicle defective.
