The first step in any Lemon Law case is always noticing a defect and bringing it to the manufacturer or one of its authorized dealers for repair. If the manufacturer fails to repair the defect on that first attempt, the vehicle may already qualify as a lemon. However, in most cases, you’ll need to provide the manufacturer with at least one more repair attempt before pursuing compensation. 

Still, it’s in your best interest to contact an attorney as soon as you suspect you may have a lemon. The sooner you act, the greater your chance of success. And with free case reviews, you have nothing to lose by consulting an attorney.

Once you’ve provided the manufacturer with a reasonable number of repair attempts, the next step is often arbitration. Rather than immediately filing a lawsuit, most states require you to try resolving the matter informally. To do so, your attorney will help you gather evidence to support your claim and present it to an arbitration panel.

After reviewing the evidence from both sides, the panel will issue a ruling as to what compensation you deserve, if any. If you’re unhappy with the panel’s decision, you may file a lawsuit to bring your claim to the courts. However, with an experienced Lemon Law attorney in your corner, the manufacturer will almost certainly settle instead of going to trial.

In most states, the manufacturer is even required to pay your attorneys’ fees when you win your case. So, if you think you have a lemon, it’s in your best interest to seek professional representation. Doing so greatly increases your chances of a successful recovery. And as a bonus, the manufacturer who sold you the lemon will likely need to pay more for its mistake.

At Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center®, more than 99% of the cases we handle settle before going to trial. And with more than 50,000 success stories to our name, we’re very confident in our abilities to get our clients the compensation they deserve.

Yes, Lemon Law claims are subject to statutes of limitation, like most laws. These differ wildly from state to state. But the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which applies in all states, allows you to file a claim for up to four years after your warranty was breached. For vehicles, this generally means you have four years to file a claim after the first failed repair attempt.

When you purchase a vehicle from a dealer or take one in for repairs, there’s a trail of documentation that you never see. This includes everything from your customer copies and warranty payment documents to dealership bookkeeping and hard copies.

The hard copy, for example, contains the original notes made by the mechanic who inspected and/or signed off on your vehicle. In some instances, you will find the phrase “Could Not Duplicate Customer Concern” stamped on the customer copy, while the hard copy often contains notes made by the mechanic that clearly state the opposite.

Not only does this leave your vehicle in need of repairs, but it also sends you back out on the road with a potentially dangerous vehicle. By carefully sourcing and investigating all existing paperwork, our attorneys can detect whether or not any vehicle problems were noted upon acceptance. So even if your repair records show no problems, you may still have a case.

When you drive off the dealer’s new car lot in your shiny and brand-new expensive vehicle, you have every right to expect that you are purchasing a reliable vehicle. The last thing you want to discover in the days, weeks, or months after your purchase is that you have purchased a lemon vehicle. Unfortunately, even with the technological advances of modern car manufacturing, a significant percentage of automobiles are simply lemon vehicles. If you bought a vehicle in the State of Alabama that seemingly cannot be repaired despite the fact you have given the manufacturer and its dealers a reasonable opportunity to fix your vehicle, then you may have a lemon vehicle which would entitle you to relief under the Lemon Law. Additionally, you may be entitled to a refund for the purchase price of your vehicle or a replacement vehicle. You may also be entitled to relief under the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act , otherwise known as the Federal Lemon Law. Either way, State and Federal Lemon Laws exist to provide Alabama consumers with protection should you be saddled with a defective vehicle.

What’s an Alabama Lemon Law vehicle?

While no automobile manufacturer guarantees that their vehicles will be defect free, all guarantee that if a defect arises during the duration of the warranty accompanying the vehicle that the manufacturer, by and through its authorized dealer network, will repair it. However, this guarantee would not be worth the paper it is written on, but for the protections afforded to Alabama consumers by virtue of the Alabama Lemon Law and federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. These Lemon Laws provide that if an automobile manufacturer, or manufacturer of other consumer product, fails to live up to their obligations to repair after being afforded a reasonable number of attempts or reasonable opportunity to do so, that the consumer is entitled to relief. In essence, if you have a vehicle that cannot be repaired, you may have a lemon vehicle on your hands.

How long am I covered under Alabama lemon Law?

Alabama state courts have recognized that you may pursue a claim for breach of warranty within four (4) years after the time the automobile manufacturer or manufacturer of any consumer product fails to repair. The Alabama Lemon Law, which is geared only towards motor vehicles, provides a shorter duration of three (3) years, but this law provides more specific and broader remedies should you be stuck with a lemon vehicle. Both of these laws require, however, that the problems with your vehicle must be reported to the manufacturer, by and through its dealers, during the duration of the warranty. The Lemon Law of Alabama also requires that to seek a refund or replacement vehicle that at least one (1) time during the vehicle’s first twelve (12) months or twelve thousand (12,000) miles that you provided the dealer with an opportunity to repair the nonconformity in your vehicle. Thereafter, the Lemon Law requires that to qualify for relief you must have given the manufacturer at least three (3) additional times to repair your vehicle, including a final repair attempt, during the vehicle’s first two (2) years or twenty-four thousand (24,000) miles, or the vehicle has been out of service for thirty (30) cumulative days.
