Lemon Law

I've had my AC blower fan replaced twice and its still making noises. Do you guys know if the Lemon Law applies to this my situation if I get it replaced a 3rd time?

Besides the blower motor, the truck runs decent. Dash squeeksand chassis rattles a bit during take off. I'm just annoyed at how often I've had to bring it into the shop for minor things like this, expecially considering that it has less than 25,000 miles on it and I'm the original owner who really babies my truck. The worst part is the wait when I bring it in for service...

There is no such thing as a lemon law. If there was I would be driving a newer charger.

Not true.

OP if something breaks down to the point where you can't drive it then it would apply. Check your state laws regarding lemon law.

Yeah, I'm getting so frustrated with it.

Its in the shop right now to get the bottom oil pan gasket replaced because it was leaking oil. I like the truck but I don't think I'm ever going to buy another Toyota. The service I've been getting at the dealerships has also been very poor. I brought it into a different dealership this morning and it took them more than an hr to get me a rental car even though my appointment was all set. They knew I was coming in with symptoms they already verified from this weekend's visit.

I also read the threads about the headlights going bad / melting and now I'm hesitate to park my truck in direct sunlight. This is a joke.

You can still drive the truck so I would guess no lemon law. Also no one has an exact reason to why the headlight lenses melt. I have 0 issues with melting.

Laws depend on state, some states it does not matter if the car is drive-able, just how many days you have been without the vehicle for so many days for the same issue in certain amount of time. Most are only for new cars within the first year.


Here is the law in CA. Seems to not state anything about being an issue that makes the car drive-able, but I did just skimmed over it.

just got the truck back. they fixed the oil leak and the comments said the oil leak came from a seal due to "poor assembly. removed and resealed oil pan assembly no 2."

they weren't able to duplicate the fan noise this time it was in. this didn't really bother me because that's what i anticipated. at least this time the lady that logged me in was very polite and friendly. she told me she really wanted to get this resolved and wanted to keep the truck til tomorrow to try to replicate the noise again. i didn't want to take any more time away from work so i just asked for my car back. i'll bring it back when the fan is consistently noisy. this is DCH toyota scion in PCH. the last place i took it to, Hooman toyota, in Long Beach had me bring the car in 3-4 times. none of the techs there has heard of the AC blower fan issue and try to make me look like an idiot by saying they can't hear a thing as I sat in the car with them as the the fan squealed like crazy.

if this was a $15-$20k car, i probably wouldn't be so picky. but the fact that its 30k+, it is very frustrating.

I have an 11 TRD Double cab. This will be my second blower. I waited 5 months for the first one to get fixed. They kept blowing me off till I called the Toyota rep. I can't believe its doing it again. Im pissed. This truck has been back for every TSB they put out and Im over it. I feel for you, it is an incredibly annoying sound.
