How to Avoid Buying a Lemon When Purchasing Your Next Car

Updated: Aug 24, 2022

Is it possible for a car to be unfixable? Therefor labeling it a Lemon.

It sounds like a crazy question, but some cars can be unfixable. The general rule when it comes to unfixable or lemon cars is that "within the first year of ownership if after four attempts, or more than 30 days in the shop, a vehicle isn't fixed, it is deemed a lemon." Once it is deemed a lemon the car manufacturer needs to take it back.

Lemon Laws

According to Lemon Laws you should document everything that is wrong with the car. If your car is a lemon you could either get a full refund or the manufacturer may offer a replacement vehicle.

Even if your car has passed the time limit/mileage limit you could still receive compensation depending on other consumer-protection laws.
