What Are Lemon Laws?

Lemon Laws have been enacted at the federal and state level. The objective of the laws is to protect consumers who purchased a vehicle that has one or more serious defects that cannot be fixed within a specified period. If the vehicle cannot be returned to as “good as new” after a number of repair attempts, it is seen as a lemon. Consumers that find themselves with a lemon vehicle can hire a Michigan Lemon Law attorney and seek redress through the law.

As the laws are different in every state, it will prove to be in your best interest if you hire an experienced attorney to help you remedy the situation.

Review the law carefully:

The Lemon Laws are different from one state to another, although there are some common clauses. As a standard rule, any vehicle that has been in for repair of the same serious defect four times while under warranty or has been in the shop for a total of 30 days is covered by the Lemon Law of the state.

Manufacturers are not keen on offering a full refund or a replacement vehicle; they will often try to convince you that when you signed the purchase or lease contract with the new car dealer, you effectively signed away your rights to recourse if the vehicle was faulty. Even if the contract does contain such a clause, it carries no weight; the Lemon Laws of the state are in force regardless of what the manufacturer might suggest.

Consult with an attorney:

Lemon laws are complex. As such, with any legal issue, it is wise to consult with a knowledgeable attorney. A Michigan Lemon Law attorney does not charge his or her clients up front. Upon the successful conclusion of the case, the manufacturer takes responsibility for paying any legal fees attributable to the case.

A Michigan Lemon law attorney will help you when you have to go up against an automobile manufacturer. If your vehicle is a lemon and the manufacturer is not compliant with your demands, contact Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center®.
