Is your Acura a lemon?

Do you own an Acura and feel like you may have purchased a lemon? We’re here to help you find out. Lemon law as it pertains to Acura vehicles is a consumer protection designed to work on behalf of buyers to insulate them from purchasing vehicles with faulty or dangerous components. Typically speaking, if your Acura is still under the manufacturer’s warranty and it has experienced a recurring issue that has rendered the vehicle undrivable or stuck in repair at the dealership for a prolonged period of time, there’s a good chance your Acura vehicle will qualify under California lemon law, and you may be eligible to participate in the Acura lemon buyback program.

Common Acura Defects

Acura vehicles that may be described as a lemon have a range of issues reported. Some of these issues may not affect safety but affect the value and performance of the vehicle, while others may prove dangerous to drivers and vehicle occupants. This may include anything from airbag component failures to transmission issues. Other issues and defects that may affect your Acura and trigger an Acura lemon law claim and buy back include (but are not limited to):

  • Engine component failure
  • Faulty brake components
  • Computer system malfunctioning
  • Door locking mechanism failure
  • Clutch malfunctioning
  • Leaking oil or other fluids

Acura Recalls

The most prominent recent Acura recall revolves around the dangerous and potentially deadly Takata airbag recall. The recall includes over a million Acura vehicles made from 2003 to 2015, affected by faulty inflator devices that affect the front passenger side of the vehicle.

In another recent recall, Acura MDX vehicles produced from 2014 to 2019 have been recalled due to faulty tail lights. This problem, stemming from a body variation damaging the light seals and allowing water from the exterior to seep in and damage the electrical components. This can, of course, lead to an accident should a vehicle behind not be able to determine whether or not the Acura is braking.

Altogether, there are currently thirty-three pending recalls for the Acura MDX alone. This points to the fact that your vehicle can always be susceptible to manufacturer error, and you may have an Acura lemon law case on your hands if so.
