Texas Lemon Laws and You
In order for your vehicle to qualify as a lemon under the Texas consumer protection lemon laws, the vehicle must meet these conditions:
- It must have a substantial manufacturing defect
- The defect must be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty
- The defect must be reported to the manufacturer during the warranty period
- The dealer must be provided with a reasonable number of opportunities to correct the defect
- The defect must persist and substantially impair the vehicle’s value, use or create a serious safety hazard
Sometimes these cases can encounter a snag over the “reasonable number of opportunities” clause in the law. Texas has solved that issue with specific guidelines for determining a “reasonable number” of repair attempts.
- The Four-Times Test: The vehicle has been to the dealer for the same defect four times within the first 24 months or 24,000 miles without a successful resolution.
- The Serious Safety-Hazard Test: The vehicle has been to the dealer for repair of a serious safety hazard twice during the first 24 months or 24,000 miles without a successful repair.
- The Thirty-Day Test: The vehicle has been out of service for at least 30 days because of an unrepaired defect that is covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty.
These guidelines are general in nature and can have other factors that impact how they apply in your case. A Texas lemon law attorney can explain more and help you build a solid claim against the manufacturer.

How Do I File a Texas Lemon Law Claim for My Defective Vehicle?
First, you must collect evidence to prove your vehicle meets the lemon law requirements in Texas. The best way to do this is to keep every service record concerning the issue from the dealer. Every time you take the vehicle to the dealer for service on the recurring problem, they make a record of all actions and services they perform. You are usually given a copy of this record. You may also ask the dealer for a complete printout of the entire service record dealing with your vehicle’s problem or problems.
