As a consumer, there are laws that protect you from defective products. Many states, including California, Tennessee, and Texas, have a form of Lemon Law that helps consumers with faulty vehicles obtain the repairs, replacement vehicle, or refund they deserve. At Thomasson PLLC, we are committed to helping customers struggling with persistent vehicle issues defend their rights and achieve a successful outcome.
While the lemon laws in each state may vary slightly, some basic criteria determine whether your vehicle qualifies as a lemon. First, your vehicle must be under the manufacturer’s warranty. The defect must persist, and you must have given the dealer or manufacturer a “reasonable amount” of time or attempts to repair the issue. It’s important to note that the term “reasonable amount” may vary depending on the nature of the specific defect. If the issue persists even after several attempts at repairs have been made, it’s time to talk to a lemon law attorney about your options for taking action.
As soon as you suspect your vehicle may have a persistent defect, you should start taking steps to document the issue. Keep all relevant paperwork, such as your warranty, the car’s repair history, and receipts of the expenses you’ve incurred, in a safe place. Next, consider filing a complaint with the vehicle’s manufacturer. Enlisting the guidance of a knowledgeable lemon law attorney is a great way to help you understand your options for obtaining the refund or replacement vehicle owed to you under your state’s lemon law.
At Thomasson PLLC, we understand how frustrating persistent issues with your vehicle can be. Having an unreliable or unsafe vehicle can complicate your life significantly. However, it’s important to recognize that you have options for pursuing a replacement vehicle or a refund.
