Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?
Thank youCan you tell me, is the car still under the factory warranty? Or has that expired?
Thank youYou may be in luck...the MN lemon law applies for up to 3 years from the date you took possession of the rig. SO if you took possession within the last 3 years? You are covered by the MN lemon law.The lemon law creates a presumption that there have been a reasonable number ofrepair attempts if, within the manufacturer’s written warranty term or during the periodof two years following the date of original delivery of the vehicle to a consumer,whichever is the earlier date, the same nonconformity has been subject to repair four or more times by themanufacturer, its agents or its authorized dealers, and the nonconformity continues to existYou mention you have tried 3 times...you need to let the rep know that you want them to fix this problem and that if they refuse you will file a lemon law claim. Then...if they refuse or can not fix it? You can begin the process to file the lemon law claim.To file the lemon law claim, you will need to make a formal (written request) to the manufacturer demanding they purchase the car from you. Keep a copy of this letter and make sure to send it certified (so you can prove they received it).In most cases, the manufacturer will require you to go through arbitration (the law allows them to do this) and will resolve this after arbitration is completePlease let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
