What Qualifies as a Lemon under the Lemon Law in Texas?

For a vehicle to qualify as a lemon in Texas, it must have a defect that’s covered by the manufacturer’s written warranty. The defect must substantially diminish the value, use, or safety of the vehicle.

You must also report the defect while the warranty is still effective for your vehicle to qualify as a lemon. Then, you must grant the dealer a reasonable number of attempts (defined below) to fix the issue. Lastly, you must provide the manufacturer with written notice of the defect and a final opportunity to fix it – a process we will handle for you.

If the defect is still present after you’ve taken the above steps, the vehicle qualifies as a lemon. To receive the compensation you’re entitled to, you must file a Lemon Law complaint within six (6) months of:

  • The expiration of the vehicle’s warranty
  • 24 months of the original purchase date
  • Traveling 24,000 miles with the vehicle

The Texas Lemon Law relies on the earliest of the above dates. So if you have a lemon, contact us as soon as possible. Doing so will ensure that we have the time we need to meet these deadlines and get you the refund or replacement vehicle you’re owed.

The Texas Lemon Law is a state law designed to protect consumers who’ve purchased or leased a new vehicle. It does so by holding manufacturers responsible for defective vehicles, requiring them to refund or replace any that they fail to repair after a reasonable number of attempts.

Texans can also turn to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act if they purchase or lease a lemon. This federal law provides broader protections, making it possible to pursue claims even after the filing window for the state law has expired.

To qualify for compensation under the Texas Lemon Law, a consumer must be a resident of Texas and purchase or lease their vehicle within the state. Additionally, the law only covers those who purchase or lease a new vehicle at retail. Although there are some exceptions to this rule.

Like all Lemon Laws, the Texas version requires consumers to provide manufacturers with a reasonable number of repair attempts before pursuing a claim. In Texas, that translates to four repair attempts for any single defect. However, if the defect poses a significant safety risk, two attempts will suffice. In both cases, at least half of the repair attempts must take place within the first 12 months and 12,000 miles of ownership.

Vehicles may also qualify for compensation if they are out of service for repairs for a total of 30 days within 24 months and 24,000 miles of the original purchase date. Plus, the federal Lemon Law only requires a single repair attempt in some cases. And as long as the vehicle is under warranty when you report its defect(s), it qualifies for protection under federal law.

From the original purchase date, consumers have a maximum of 30 months to file a claim under the Texas Lemon Law. However, the reporting period is shorter for vehicles that get a lot of use. Officially, you have six months to file a claim after either A) the warranty expires B) the vehicle has been driven 24,000 miles, or C) 24 months have passed since the original purchase date.

The six-month filing deadline begins on the earliest of these three dates. Thus, it’s important to take action as soon as you think you may have a lemon. You can get started with a free case review today.

That said, if you miss the deadline to file a Texas Lemon Law claim, you still have options. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act allows you to file a claim for up to four years after your warranty was breached. For vehicles, that often means four years from the date of the first failed repair attempt. Still, the sooner you act, the greater your chances of success.

What Is a ‘Reasonable Number of Repair Attempts’?

Texas state law defines “reasonable number of repair attempts” in three different ways:


  • Two (2) attempts for defects that are significant safety hazards

  • Four (4) attempts for other defects

  • Any number of attempts that take a total of 30 days or more


All three definitions require the attempts to take place within the first 24 months or 24,000 miles of the vehicle’s life, whichever comes first. Additionally, any time the dealer or manufacturer provides you with a comparable loaner while servicing your vehicle does not count toward the 30-day limit.
