Acura is a division of the Honda Motor Company and became the first luxury car sold in the U.S. by a Japanese manufacturer. Advertised as high-precision vehicles, Acuras made their debut in the United States in 1986. Though Honda may have precision-crafted the Acura during its design and engineering process, many of the high-end vehicles failed to roll off the line with the precision parts and processes that Acura promised. In fact, a significant number of Acuras qualify as a lemon under California’s Lemon Law. Under this law, lemons are described in the following way:
To qualify as a lemon, the car’s defect cannot have stemmed from misuse or abuse. If you’ve attempted to repair a lingering problem with your Acura 2 or more times, or it’s spent a substantial amount of time out of service, California’s lemon law may entitle you to compensation.

When a leased vehicle meets the requirements of California’s lemon laws, you can file a claim for compensation. While a purchased vehicle owner can expect reimbursement of their down payment and the amount they’ve paid toward their car loan, those who’ve leased an Acura lemon should expect compensation for the amount they’ve already paid and a buy-out of the remainder of their lease agreement.
For used vehicles, the law becomes a little murkier. Your used vehicle may still qualify for compensation under the following circumstances:
The owner of a used vehicle may not be able to gain compensation at all if they bought the car under the “as is” premise.
