Learn the Basics of the Texas Lemon Law

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 typically only applies to new vehicles. However, if you purchased a used vehicle that was still covered by the original warranty it may still be covered. Plus, there are a number of other laws that offer similar protection. If your used car is a lemon, contact us today so that we can review your case and advise you on the best course of action.

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.
