Arizona Lemon Law Attorneys

Purchasing a vehicle should be a cause for celebration, but when you purchase a “lemon” it can feel more like a curse. If your car feels like it’s always in the shop for repairs, Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center® can help you collect the compensation you’re owed.

The Arizona Lemon Law Explained in Plain English

Arizona’s Lemon Law requires vehicle manufacturers to honor the warranties on the vehicles they sell. If the manufacturer fails to repair a defect after a reasonable number of attempts, you can return the vehicle and collect your choice of a refund or a replacement vehicle.

To qualify for compensation, the defect must substantially impair the use and value of the vehicle. So minor issues, like cosmetic imperfections, won’t get you a new car. Similarly, defects that occur because of abuse, neglect, or unauthorized modifications/alterations are not protected.

The law applies to any self-propelled vehicles that are meant for use primarily on public roads. However, the vehicle must weigh less than 10,000 lbs. And for motor homes, the Lemon Law only protects the vehicle and chassis. Components of the “home” in a mobile home, like appliances and plumbing, are not protected by the Arizona Lemon Law.

Eligible defects must be reported to the manufacturer within 2 years or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first) of the original purchase date. Or, if the vehicle’s warranty is shorter than 2 years, the defects must be reported before it expires.

If your vehicle meets these requirements, reach out to us today for a Free Case Review. Even after the initial review, we don’t charge for our services unless you prevail. And, thanks to the fee-shifting provisions in the Arizona Lemon Law, we bill the manufacturer for our service when we win, not you. Thus, you have nothing to lose, except of course your lemon.

YES. Federal and/or state lemon laws provide for the recovery of car rental expenses when a vehicle is out of service. These expenses are known as consequential or collateral damages and are recoverable when your lemon vehicle is out of service while subject to repairs, including the time the dealer may just be waiting on parts.

Since 1995, we have never seen so many consumers being forced to incur this expense due to the shortage of available loaner vehicles that dealers traditionally would provide from their own lots. Due to the worldwide chip shortage, new car dealers simply don’t have available cars to give out as loaner vehicles like they used to do so during the repair process. Therefore, if you have a lemon don’t throw your money down the drain paying for a car rental while your lemon vehicle sits unrepaired at the dealer. Contact our firm for a Free Case Review and we will advise you of all of the damages you may recover for your lemon vehicle, including your car rental expenses.

Most state lemon laws cover vehicles with a defect or non-conformity that substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. Every situation is unique and a defect that you might not ordinarily think is substantial, might very well be depending on how it affects you.

For instance, even something that is seemingly as minor as the illumination of a light on your dashboard might signify a larger problem. Or, something like a brake squeak might be substantial if it affects your use and enjoyment of the vehicle. And the federal Lemon Law applies to all warrantied defects, regardless of their effect on the vehicle.

For a vehicle to be considered a lemon, it must meet certain requirements. While each state is different, there are some general things that hold true across the board. At the most basic level, the vehicle needs to have some type of defect or non-conformity. And under most state laws, the defect must be covered by a warranty and be reported to the manufacturer within a specific timeframe and mileage limit.

However, the defect alone does not classify your vehicle as a lemon. Usually, the manufacturer must try and fail to repair the defect multiple times before the vehicle earns that distinction.

What Qualifies as a Reasonable Number of Repair Attempts?

The Arizona Lemon Law provides manufacturers with four repair attempts. Alternatively, if the vehicle is out of service for repairs for a cumulative total of 30 calendar days or more, it’s a lemon. In either case, the repair attempts must take place within 2 years or 24,000 miles from the original purchase date or during the warranty period, whichever comes first.

And before you can file a Lemon Law claim, you must notify the manufacturer of the defect in writing. Once you’ve done so, you must provide them with one final attempt to complete the repair. So as soon as you think you might have a lemon, let us know. We can notify the manufacturer on your behalf and expedite the process as much as possible.

The Arizona Lemon Law Process

After the manufacturer tries and fails to fix your defective vehicle for the final time, you need to try resolving the issue with a third-party arbitration board before you can file a legal claim. Most manufacturers have established arbitration procedures, but if yours doesn’t you can skip this step.

To file a claim for arbitration, you typically only need to submit the relevant documents to prove your case, which we can do for you. The board will review the claim and offer a ruling. Only you can decide whether their ruling is acceptable. If you aren’t satisfied with it, the next step is to file a claim in the courts, but fewer than 1% of our cases ever go to trial even if we have to file a claim with the court.
