Lemon Law compensation can include a refund, replacement or cash compensation. The following comments briefly explain the Texas Lemon Law and how it can help protect you.

The Texas Lemon Law is a law that helps consumers who buy or lease new motor vehicles and have repeated problems getting their vehicles properly repaired. The Lemon Law can help a consumer get the vehicle repurchased, replaced or repaired. It can be less complicated and less expensive than going to court.

The Texas Lemon Laws were enacted by the Texas Legislature in 1983.  Texas Lemon Law is administered by the Texas Department of Transportation's Motor Vehicle Division and its Motor Vehicle Board. Through mediation and formal hearings allowed under the law, the Motor Vehicle Division has helped resolve many complaints.

In 1991, the Legislature changed the Lemon Law to benefit more consumers. The time period for filing a complaint and the definition of a "lemon" were expanded, and consumers may now be reimbursed for certain incidental expenses. Now, a disclosure notice accompanying any vehicle repurchased or replaced under the Lemon Law is also required.

In 1997, the Legislature added towable recreational vehicles (TRVs) to the Lemon Law. Besides being made primarily for temporary human habitation, TRVs must
  1. be titled and registered in Texas;
  2. be built on a single chassis;
  3. contain one or more life support systems, and
  4. be towable by another motor vehicle.
