Additionally, the law covers vehicles for eighteen months after the purchase or lease or cars with less than 18,000 miles on them.
The ‘reasonable number of attempts’ is not numerically defined, but there are some guidelines. If the manufacturer or dealership has tried at least twice to repair a problem that could cause injury or death if left unrepaired, the Lemon Law can apply. Cars that the manufacturer or dealership has tried to fix the same problem on at least four times are also covered.
Vehicles that have been in the shop for repairs for more than thirty days, leaving the owner unable to drive it for that amount of time, can be covered by the Lemon Law. The thirty days do not have to be consecutive. The law can apply if multiple visits add up to thirty days.
