What Is Considered A Reasonable Number Of Repair Attempts?

The Arizona lemon law establishes a presumption that a reasonable number of attempts has been undertaken to conform a motor vehicle to the applicable express warranties if, during the shorter of the term of the express warranty, or the period of two years or 24,000 miles following the date of the motor vehicle`s original delivery to the consumer, whichever is earlier, either of the following occurs:
    The same nonconformity has been subject to repair four or more times by the manufacturer, its agents or authorized dealers but the nonconformity continues to exist.
  • The motor vehicle is out of service for repair for a cumulative total of 30 or more calendar days.

The term of an express warranty, the two year period, and the 30 day period are extended by any period of time during which repair services are not available to the consumer because of war, invasion, strike, fire, flood, or other natural disaster.
