In lemon law, the Dodge manufacturer has the opportunity to make a reasonable number of repairs before your vehicle is deemed a lemon. This helps ensure that the manufacturer doesn’t take an unlimited amount of time or attempts at fixing your Dodge — at a certain point you need to be able to take action and get the compensation you deserve. While lemon laws differ from state to state, in California a reasonable number attempts have been made if:
- You’ve taken your car in two or more times for the same serious issue that, if not fixed, could cause death or serious injury to you or others.
- You’ve had repairs done four or more times for the same general warranty issue and the problem still persists.
- Your car has been undrivable, either because it’s in the shop or unsafe to operate, for at least 30 days because of these problems.
If this criteria has been met, you may have a lemon and are eligible for a Dodge buyback.
