Overcoming Lemon Law Misconceptions
Roughly 150,000 cars each year are purchased by Americans, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the NHTSA. This comes under an unforeseen loss of monetary value, loss of work, additional transportation fees used as an alternative, repair costs, towing fees, and many more hits to one’s wallet that they never expect buying a car might bring this upon them.
American manufacturers like Ford and General Motors, to manufacturers of foreign companies like Toyota, Volkswagen, Honda and so on, all make thousands of lemon vehicles every year.
These lemons’ defects can vary from minor paint mistakes or strange odors to extremely dangerous defaults like brake system failure, airbags defect, or malfunctioning engines.

Before taking help from lemon law, one should understand what it covers and what defense options they have available. Each state in the U.S. has its lemon law. There are just slight differences in their standards of protection. Every state covers “nonconformities.”
A nonconformity is default or defect in the vehicle before its arrival to the customer. These defects could be human error, substandard use of materials, faulty components used in the manufacturing process, and so on. The cause of this is not as important a result.
Some customers told us that their dealer said they have no right to claim and they should keep trying to fix it on their own or get rid of the vehicle and purchase a new one. Luckily, this is not something that your dealer can decide.
Lemon Law in your state will determine if your car is lemon, not the dealer or manufacturer. Dealers usually try to intimidate customers and avoid potential legal issues and disputes. If your dealer does the same with you, get in contact with our lemon law attorney, Scott Law Group P.C., as soon as possible.
In law, you just need to focus on the timeline and make sure you do not miss it. Filing the wrong paperwork or at the wrong time, you might lose the case. So in the case of lemon law, just make sure to file a claim under your warranty time.
