How do I know if my vehicle is a lemon?

A motor vehicle may be declared a lemon if it meets all of the following conditions:

  • The vehicle has a serious defect or abnormal condition.
  • The defect or condition is covered by a manufacturer’s written warranty.
  • The owner reports the defect or condition to the dealer or manufacturer within the warranty term.
  • The owner gives the dealer or manufacturer a reasonable number of attempts to repair the defect or condition.
  • The owner gives the manufacturer (preferably by certified mail) written notice of the defect and at least one opportunity for repair.
  • The defect or condition persists and substantially impairs the vehicle’s use or market value, or creates a serious safety hazard.
  • The owner files a timely Lemon Law complaint and pays the filing fee.

  • 3 Tests Under the Texas Lemon Law

    Four-times test

    If you have taken the vehicle to a dealership for repairs:

    • two times for the same problem or defect within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first, and
    • twice more during the 12 months or 12,000 miles after the second repair attempt, and the problem is still not repaired
    • you pass the four-times test.

    Serious-safety-hazard test
