Is Your Acura a Lemon?
If you think your new Acura is a lemon, the good news is that there are laws to protect you. But, how do you know if your Acura fits the definition of a lemon under California law? Your first clue might be if you've just bought your Acura, and it is already spending more time in the shop than with you. A car that breaks down or has other mechanical issues right from the beginning that have nothing to do with what you've done to the car or how you are driving it may indeed fall under the lemon law of California.

Common Problems with Lemon Acura Models

- Dash lights being lit up all the time, usually the battery and/or oil lights

What Does the California Lemon Law Say?
The California lemon law applies to purchased or leased new cars that have an active Manufacturer warranty. If your new Acura has a Manufacturer warranty, it is likely covered under the lemon law in California.
Lemon cars are considered to be those that have substantial defects that negatively impact the safety, use, and/or value of the car. Also, your car must have experienced one of the following three things since you purchased or leased it:
- Being repaired four or more times for the same issue that started while it was under warranty
- Being repaired twice for a safety defect that could potentially be dangerous, life-threatening, or likely to cause bodily harm while under warranty
- Being broken down and unable to be used for thirty cumulative (not consecutive) days while under warranty
If your Acura meets one of the above repair circumstances, as well as the other conditions listed above, it is a lemon covered under the protection of the lemon law of California.
