Buying a car is super exciting. Especially if it’s your first one. But what happens if your car starts to have problems as soon as you drive it off the lot? If this is the case, there is a good chance you were sold a lemon. A lemon is a car that has a ton of defects that make it impossible to drive.
If you suspect you may have been sold a lemon car, this article is for you.
What Are Lemon Laws?
Lemon laws are laws that are designed to protect consumers when they have been sold a car that doesn’t meet the standards for quality and performance. While the lemon law is a federal law, each state has their own individual rules. You will therefore need to check with your state to see what their rules are in regard to this law.
The federal lemon law requires the manufacturer to try to fix the problem multiple times before the case can go to court. If they have tried to fix the problem with no success, you may have a case on your hands.
Please know these types of cases can be difficult to win. Most car manufacturers have a team of lawyers who deal with these cases daily. That’s why it’s very important you have an experienced team of lawyers on your side. If you win the manufacturer will have to pay all your attorney fees.
