What Would Be Considered A Lemon?

A lemon automobile is one which does not conform to the express warranty and cannot be repaired after a reasonable number of attempts ­­ at least four repair visits to correct the same malfunction during the warranty period or within one year of delivery of the vehicle; or if the vehicle has been out of service for repair for a combined total of at least 30 days during the same period. If the defect still exists, the manufacturer may replace the lemon with a new vehicle or may give a full refund.
