Acura, a luxury vehicle division of Honda, debuted in the United States in 1986, showcasing its reputation for fast, high-performance luxury cars. Over the years, Acura maintained its commitment to delivering vehicles that lived up to their high-performance, luxury branding.
However, despite Acura’s strong reputation for high-performance vehicles, not every vehicle released lives up to these lofty standards. As an Acura owner, you may need to bring your vehicle in for multiple repairs if you own or lease a lemon. Even more concerning is the potential for these flaws to create an unsafe driving environment for you and your passengers.
In such cases, your vehicle may meet the criteria for classification as a lemon under both California and federal lemon law. If Acura proves unable to rectify the issues with your vehicle within a reasonable number of attempts (typically considered to be two repairs), you may have grounds to pursue a lemon law claim for a refund or replacement of your Acura.
If you own an Acura vehicle in California and have been experiencing persistent issues or defects, you may be eligible for relief under the California lemon law.

Does California lemon law protect me if I purchased my car “as is”?
