Although Aurora, Illinois is home to dozens of different auto dealerships, proximity to these car companies fails to protect individuals from the pitfalls of purchasing a new vehicle. Wherever you buy or lease a new vehicle, faulty parts, safety issues, and other defects are always a possibility.
Thankfully, if your new vehicle doesn’t work as it should, then you may be entitled to compensation through a Lemon Law claim. In Aurora, the Lemon Law dictates that eligible consumers receive a new vehicle or a buyback opportunity at the expense of the manufacturer.
Fortunately, Krohn & Moss, Ltd. makes the claim process easy. Our consumer law firm has decades of experience fighting for the rights of individuals in the Aurora area. As a result, we understand precisely what it takes to help you collect the compensation you deserve.
Don’t wait to pursue the compensation you deserve. Call our law firm today at 800-875-3666 to schedule your FREE case consultation.
Understanding Your Consumer Rights – The Aurora Lemon Law
If you bought or leased a new vehicle in Aurora, it may be covered by the Illinois State Lemon Law. This law covers a variety of defective products, including most new passenger vehicles weighing less than 8,000 lbs.
To be eligible for compensation, your vehicle must have a warranty-covered nonconformity (defect) that significantly impacts the vehicle’s safety, use, or value. If your vehicle has such a nonconformity, you must give the manufacturer at least four chances to repair the issue.
Alternatively, if your vehicle has been out of service for repairs for 30 days or longer, it’s typically presumed to be a lemon.
If the manufacturer is unable to repair your vehicle in a reasonable amount of time, you have a legitimate claim and should file suit. It’s important to reach out to an Illinois Lemon Law Attorney as soon as possible for assistance with your case. The State law has strict deadlines for filing a claim, but, thankfully, the Federal law is far more lenient with deadlines.
In any case, we also recommend that you keep as many records and receipts as possible in regard to your vehicle and any service it has received. We can help secure any documents you’re missing. However, any documents you have from the sale or lease of the vehicle as well as any repair attempts can be incredibly useful.
Before you file a claim, schedule a case review with an experienced Lemon Law attorney to give yourself the best chance at securing the compensation you’re owed.

How the Federal Lemon Law Affects Aurora Drivers
While the Lemon Law in Aurora provides a wide array of consumer protections, a federal Lemon Law expands upon these safeguards. This federal law, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, gives Aurora vehicle owners and lessees additional time to file a Lemon Law claim.
So even if the defect on your vehicle surfaced after 12 months of ownership, or after the 12,000-mile mark, you may still be eligible to file a claim. Additionally, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act includes a clause for attorney’s fees. This means that in addition to compensating you for your faulty vehicle, the manufacturer will be required to pay for your attorney fees when you prevail in court.
The attorneys at Krohn & Moss, Ltd. will review your case and help you decide which law holds the manufacturer responsible for your lemon. And once we’ve done so, we’ll be with you every step of the way until we secure your recovery.
