Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my car qualifies as a lemon?
If your car is still under warranty and you’ve made reasonable attempts at repairs, you may be eligible for protection under lemon laws. Additionally, if your vehicle is no longer under warranty but your problems started occurring when the vehicle was still under its warranty, you may have grounds to file a claim.
Do I still qualify if my vehicle is leased?
Yes, as long as your car was leased with a warranty, you should still qualify under lemon laws. When a manufacturer agrees to repurchase your leased vehicle, they’ll reimburse you for any down payment and monthly payments made in order to lease the vehicle, plus any other fees and costs associated with your lease.
What if my vehicle is no longer under warranty?
You may still be entitled to compensation. It depends on many factors, including when you started to receive repairs on your vehicle. If your vehicle first started experiencing issues while it was still under warranty, it is possible that you are eligible for a buyback or replacement.
How long will the lemon law process take?
Depending on your individual case, the lemon law process usually lasts between 1-3 months.
My dealership said I don’t have a case. Should I give up?
No! It’s in the interest of the dealership that you don’t pursue a lemon law claim, so they’ll mislead you.
