What Makes a Car Qualify as a Lemon?
Do you think that your car is a lemon? It’s possible that it is, especially if it has already been repaired three or more times for the same exact defect within its warranty. This is especially true if the same defect hasn’t been fixed. If this is the case you definitely own a lemon. Since every state differs when it comes to lemon laws, you should speak with an experienced lemon law attorney concerning the lemon law for the car.
Is Your Car Really a Lemon?
In some cases the actual defect doesn’t have to impair the car’s value, safety, or use to be determined a lemon. For example if the light switch came out when you pulled it, the paint is peeling, or the automobile makes disturbing noises but drives just fine, you could still own a lemon. However if the auto won’t go in reverse, or the brakes don’t operate safely, it doesn’t pick up speed when you press the gas pedal, or the car wobbles all over the road then you more than likely have a lemon. All you need to do is make sure that you give the manufacturer a sufficient opportunity to actually repair the defects.
It All Hinges on the Repair History
No matter what may be wrong with your vehicle, if you do not have the repair history that shows you’ve tried to have it fixed by the manufacturer at least 3 to 4 times it may be difficult the brand the vehicle as a lemon. When you have adequate repair history it’s more likely that your car will qualify and be considered a lemon under state and federal lemon laws.
