Concerned That Your Car May Be a "Lemon"?

Aug 17, 2007
So you've bought a new car, fresh off the line. You're surprised when something goes wrong, but you have a car warranty and just take it to the dealer for repairs.

However, the problem occurs again, and again, and again. You realize it's time to research your local lemon laws.

First of all, lemon laws can light a fire under your service department. So don't be afraid to push your service department into action. Get information regarding your state's lemon law, and get your money back or have the problem fixed correctly.

If you paid for an extended warranty, don't be afraid to get your money's worth.

However, if your car actually qualifies as a lemon under your state's lemon law, generally you receive a replacement automobile or monetary compensation.

But how can you tell if your car qualifies?

If you think you have a lemon, a simple consultation with an attorney who specializes in the lemon law can help you determine if the problem is your mechanic or your car.

The lemon law isn't meant to be challenging. It's there to protect you, not the dealership. By all means, don't shy away from using the lemon law because it confuses you. It is there to help protect your vehicle when regular car warranties are of no use.

As long as you have documented all of your attempts, you'll be in good shape!

Both the lemon law and an extended warranty can benefit you when you have purchased a new or used vehicle that appears to have defects that cannot be remedied by repeated repairs.

If you chose to purchase an extended warranty, know your rights given to you under the warranty, and be thorough in your inquiries. Be aware that if you decided to purchase an extended warranty with your vehicle, you may not be covered by the lemon law in your state.

If you chose not to purchase the warranty, know your rights under the lemon law, and immediately contact a lemon law attorney if you feel your rights have been violated.

And if your car is determined to be a lemon, can you legally sell your lemon? Though it may not always be easy to sell your car following a lemon law battle, do not despair. As long as you disclose all pertinent facts, legally you can sell that lemon!

Honesty regarding the lemon law is always the best policy, and disclosure makes it legal. Just follow a few simple guidelines and you'll be alright.
