What does “Reasonable Number” of Repair Attempts Mean?
What does the law consider a “reasonable number” of repair attempts? Each state provides different stipulations; generally, cars with less than a certain mileage that have a least three or four failed attempts at fixing the defect are covered under Lemon Laws. California Lemon Laws, for instance, explain that the criteria for a reasonable number of repair attempts has been met when one of the following occurs:
- The defect results in a condition that is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury if the vehicle is driven; the car has been subject to repair two or more times; and the consumer has directly notified the manufacturer of the need for repair.
- The car has been subject to repair four or more times, and the car owner has directly notified the manufacturer of the need for repair.
- The defect has caused the car to be out of service for more than 30 calendar days since the owner received the car.
