Acura Lemon Law Information
Acura a division of Honda America Motor Co., Inc., was first introduced to the United States in 1986. Their slogan is: Acura. Precision crafted Automobiles. Acura has always provided luxury high end vehicles, which was evidenced again during Super Bowl 50, when Acura reintroduced the new Acura NSX with a top speed of 205 miles per hour. While Acura manufactures precision crafted automobiles, not all their cars come of the line that way. Some Acura vehicles are lemons as they will be subject to multiple repair attempts for issues that substantially impair the safety, use or value of these vehicles, making these Acura vehicles a lemon under state lemon law and/or the federal lemon law. If Acura cannot repair these lemon vehicles in a reasonable number of attempts these Acura lemon owners would be entitled to lemon law relief.
