There are approximately 150,000 new and/or used cars every year that turn out to be “lemons.” This means that roughly one percent of cars that are manufactured have some sort of defect that impairs the way in which they run. If you’re the victim of purchasing a vehicle with defects, it’s important that you seek the justice that you deserve.
Unlike the average consumer, automobile manufacturers and dealerships have extensive experience when it comes to negotiating settlements that work in their best interest. At Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center®, we believe that you deserve someone equally experienced on your side when it comes to getting a fair settlement for a defective automobile which you were unknowingly sold.
What is the Lemon Law?
Have you ever purchased a vehicle only to realize that it has inherent defects? While this is extremely frustrating, there are state and/or federal laws in place to protect you from putting yourself and others in danger because of a faulty part of your car. In order for your vehicle to qualify as a lemon, it must meet, at a minimum, the following two standards:
- The defect must be substantial and covered under the warranty that comes with your car; in order to fall under the warranty, the defect must occur within a certain time period or within a certain number of miles after you purchased the vehicle.
- The Manufacturer, through its dealership network, is unable to repair your vehicle after a reasonable number of repair attempts and/or a reasonable amount of time.
What Qualifies as a Substantial Defect?
The defect to your vehicle needs to be substantial in order to qualify under the “lemon law.” “Substantial defects” are any defects that may impair the use, value and/or safety of your vehicle. Make sure to ask our team if you have any doubt or are uncertain as to whether the defect you are experiencing with your vehicle will qualify as a substantial defect.
