Is Your Acura Still Having Mechanical Problems After Warranty Repairs?

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:

  • Vehicles with lingering defects still present after 2-4 repair attempts by the dealership or after the vehicle has been out of service due to repairs for 30 or more days
  • One or more defects are substantial and covered by warranty

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. Further, it’s important to address the safety risks that these defects may pose to you and your family.


Reported Acura lemon law issues include, but are not limited to: 

  • Engine 
  • Suspension
  • Transmission
  •  Steering
  • Electrical System 
  • Air Conditioning System 
  • Brake System

Some of the most common complaints about Acura models include:

  • Vibration and noise from the wheel and suspension system and/or the steering column
  • Dash warning lights randomly illuminating, including brake, battery, and oil lights
  • Electrical system defects in the air conditioning system, heated seats, and infotainment system
  • The engine dies or fails to start
  • Problems with the transmission system, including lurching, stalling, hesitation, and gear grinding
  • Unintended vehicle acceleration
  • The display randomly switches between night and day settings

Acura has been under multiple investigations by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration including a class-action lawsuit as far back as 2000.

Avoiding Common Lemon Law Pitfalls

Vehicle manufacturers, including Acura, use many legal tactics to avoid compensating vehicle owners. They have powerful defense lawyers to try to minimize lemon law claims through the following tactics:

  • Offering a warranty extension that really requires owners to sign away their original warranty and lemon law rights
  • Offering private arbitration as a faster solution and then using the arbitrator’s negative decision against you later in court if you pursue litigation
  • Offering out-of-court legal agreements with a small cash settlement 
  • Dragging out the process until the warranty expires or the vehicle owner gives up

Always speak to an attorney with experience in California’s lemon laws to avoid common traps and pitfalls and to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome.

Do California Lemon Laws Apply to Used and Leased Cars?

There are many myths and misconceptions about California’s lemon laws when it comes to used and leased cars. Many people mistakenly believe that the laws don’t apply at all if you didn’t purchase a brand-new vehicle. The truth is, the law applies, but your compensation will be different.

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:

  • When the used Acura is still covered under its original factory warranty
  • When the used Acura is sold with a written factory warranty such as a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Warranty

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.
