Our Lemon Law Lawyers in Michigan Will Represent You and Demand that the Car Manufacturer Pay Our Bill

The Lemon Law in Michigan holds manufacturers liable for selling defective vehicles. It states that if you purchase or lease a lemon, you’re entitled to a refund or a replacement vehicle. The manufacturer is also required to pay your attorneys’ fees as well as other expenses you’ve incurred in relation to the lemon, like rental cars or towing fees.

These fee-shifting provisions allow us to represent you at no cost; we never charge for our services unless we win your case or reach a favorable settlement. And when that happens, we bill the car company for our efforts, not you. So if you want help with your defective vehicle from some of the most experienced lemon law lawyers in Michigan, reach out to us today!

A Quick Summary of the Michigan Lemon Law

Michigan’s Lemon Law applies to privately owned passenger vehicles that were purchased or leased primarily for personal, family, or household purposes. The law also applies to commercial vehicles in some cases. But motorcycles, off-road vehicles, motor homes, and larger trucks are all explicitly excluded.

To qualify as a lemon, the vehicle must have a defect or condition that diminishes its value or use. The defect must be reported to the manufacturer within one year of the delivery date and covered by the warranty. If the manufacturer fails to fix the issue after a reasonable number of repair attempts, they must provide the consumer with a full refund or comparable replacement.

Before your vehicle can be considered a lemon, you must report the defect to the manufacturer in writing, which we can do on your behalf. At this point, the manufacturer can direct you to an accessible repair facility where they will have one last chance to fix the issue. If the issue persists after this final attempt, you have a lemon.

When the manufacturer has an informal dispute settlement procedure, that’s the next step. We can present your case to these arbitration boards and often secure favorable settlements by doing so. But if you aren’t satisfied with the settlement offer, we’ll file a legal Lemon Law claim with the court to seek the refund or replacement vehicle you’re owed.

For a vehicle to qualify as a lemon under the Michigan Lemon Law, manufacturers must be given four attempts to repair the vehicle. These attempts must take place within two years of the first attempt. However, any number of attempts will qualify if they keep the vehicle out of service for a total of 30+ days within a year of the original delivery date and while the car is still under warranty.

YES. Under Michigan’s Lemon Law, used cars receive the same protections as new cars. However, all of the time frames are based on the date of delivery for the original purchaser. So as long as your vehicle meets the definition of a lemon, it doesn’t matter whether it was new or used when you purchased it.

The federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act also provides additional protection for used cars that are still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. So if you’ve purchased a used car in Michigan that winds up being a lemon, let us know. We will make a claim for a refund, replacement vehicle, or seek cash compensation for you.

YES. Both state and federal lemon laws apply to private party sales in Michigan. Whether you purchased a vehicle new from a dealer or used from a private party, it must meet all of the same qualifications to be considered a lemon. So the defect must be reported to the manufacturer within one year of the original purchase date to qualify as a lemon under Michigan law.

If the defect was not reported in time, we can still turn to federal laws to make a “breach of warranty” claim. There are a number of ways to hold car companies liable for lemons. But the sooner you contact us, the better your chances are of succeeding with your claim.
