How Many Repair Attempts Do I Have To Allow?

One or more of the following presumptions should apply to your car:

Three times presumption
  • you took your car in for repair for the same nonconformity at least three times within the Lemon Law Rights Period but
  • the nonconformity continues to exist

One time serious nonconformity presumption

  • you took your car in for repair at least once for a serious nonconformity within the Lemon Law Rights Period but
  • the nonconformity continues to exist and is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury if the car is driven

30 days presumption

  • you took your car in for repair for one or more nonconformities within the Lemon Law Rights Period and the total number of business days which the car was in for repair adds up to 30 or more days

Note: The more presumptions that apply to your car the better—usually it means you have a stronger case.
