"The California Lemon Law (Civ. Code, § 1793.22) protects you when your vehicle is defective and cannot be repaired after a “reasonable” number of attempts. In such instances, the manufacturer must either replace or repurchase the vehicle—whichever you prefer.

The Lemon Law applies to most vehicles purchased or leased in California that are still under a manufacturer’s new car warranty. "

I think your question hinges on what constitutes a "reasonable" number of repair attempts. IANAL, but to this particular member of the jury pool (well, I don't live in CA, but if I did...), if the dealer has tried to fix the same problem 4 times without success, you've got a lemon and they are obligated to replace the car. How you actually go about getting the dealer to do that, I have no idea.
