You spent years saving up for an expensive vehicle and finally bought one. You felt like a million bucks driving it off the lot and during your first few weeks on the road. However, all that excitement is now overshadowed because you may be worried that you are dealing with a lemon.
What is a lemon? What are Lemon Laws? It is important for you to get the answers to these questions as you determine if you should pursue a case against the dealer or manufacturer.
Just because you have to take your vehicle to the dealership to get something repaired does not mean it is a lemon. However, if you have had to go back repeatedly for the same issue, you may have a lemon. If your vehicle has spent an unreasonable amount of time in the shop, you may be able to pursue a case against the dealer or manufacturer with the goal of getting a replacement vehicle or compensation.
What are Lemon Laws? They are consumer protection laws that help people who have bought defective vehicles and consumer goods. You can consult with an attorney who has training and experience in this field to find out if these laws would apply to your situation and what steps you should take if you are sure your vehicle is a lemon.
Be prepared to share records related to repairs made to your vehicle and correspondence with the automaker or dealership.
