No he has no case against your son.One of the first things to consider as to whether your state’s lemon law applies to your case is whether your car is new vs. used. A majority of lemon law state statutes apply only to new cars, including Tennessee’s. The sale here is as is there is no warranty or lemon law in Tennessee for used cars and private sales of them.It just doesn't apply and they have no case in this matter.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
