Consumer Protection Lawyer: DCrane Law, Lawyer replied 6 years ago
Thank you, in order to be considered a lemon, the vehicle must unsuccessfully go through the same repair three times without cure, this includes different repairs for the same cure.

Further,a lemon law claim is against the manufacturer,not the dealer.
Per 8-205A a motor vehicle dealer or authorized dealer may not be made a party to a lemon law suit.


You do have a claim against the dealer for failure to properly cure the vehicle of the defect,this would be a claim of negligence. Please let me know if you need additional guidance.
