If my car is not fixed this 7th time at the dealer I am planning to
proceed with the Lemon Law in CA. Has anyone here had to use it? What
were the results?

Bruce, I have just this evening posted the result of a long series of
workshop visits to fix a boost problem on a 1999 Saab 9-3, see
In my case, it was a collapsed catalytic converter that reduced exhaust
flow and limited max charge pressure to 0,6 bar. This particular car is

As a matter of fact I have. Living in The Netherlands which has similar
consumer law. In 1995 I bought a new audi Coupe which had a lot of problems.
After missing the car for weeks and a troublesome skiing trip, I returned
the car and had my lawyer undo the buying contract.
It was the first time in Holland someone used this law with a car -cars are
some sort of special product and considered not to comply to this law-.
The importer claimed later to have fixed the problem -which they already had
several times- and asked me to accept the car. I wanted the car and claimed
some 15% return on the price, which I got.
Ever since it's been a good car.
