There are several ways your vehicle may qualify as a lemon. While an evaluation is best left to the opinion of an experienced lemon law attorney, there are a few common issues that indicate your vehicle qualifies as a lemon. 

You might have a lemon if:

  • The vehicle came from the factory in a condition that would not pass without objection in the auto industry – often established by experts.
  • Most often a vehicle qualifies as a lemon if the manufacturer (through its dealerships) failed to fix a car’s defects under warranty after a reasonable opportunity to repair it.  
  • Sometimes, if one’s vehicle has been in the shop so many times for different things, it qualifies as a lemon by virtue of the number of days it has been in the shop for warranty repairs.
