Lemon Law Questions

What is the lemon law?

The Lemon Law is considered to be the American state laws that offer a solution for those who buy cars to be reimbursed for cars that constantly fail to meet the required standards of excellence and performance. These types of vehicles are called lemons. The federal lemon law safe guards people in all states. The State Lemon law does in fact vary from state to state and many not always cover used or rented cars. The rights that are offered to buyers by the lemon laws may in fact go over the warranties that are stated in the buyer contracts.

In the state of Indiana does the lemon law apply to someone who has bought an used vehicle where a warranty was given and has been in a repair shop well over five times?

In this specific case, the Indiana Lemon law only applies to those who have bought new vehicle, not a used one unless the problem had been reported before to the maker or dealer within the first 18 months or 18,000 miles of when the car was first sold. Also, under the Indiana law, used cars are to be considered to be sold as is and the possibility of a fault believed as to be on the buyer unless there is a legal written warranty. If the individual has reported this problem within warranty period and the repair shop has failed to fix the problem within this warranty period, then the individual can still take them responsible under the warranty for making these types of repairs right under the concept of careless repairs from when the car was bought. If these repair shops are refusing to fix the problem that was reported while still under warranty, this individual can file a breach of warranty claim with the Attorney General’s Consumer Affairs Division, this company will try to reconcile the argument and if they are not successful then the individual can sue for careless repairs and breach of warranty for the cost of all the repairs that were reported.

In the state of Arizona is there a Lemon Law that relates to firearms?

As for Lemon Laws applying to fire arms there is no such law within the state of Arizona. If the individual has purchased a firearm from a company then that person is limited to the makers’ warranty, and any warranty that is given by the dealer. In the case that the individual is under a warranty by the maker, that person can request that the maker either repair or replace the firearm.

In the state of California is there a time limit on the Lemon Law?

Under the California’s Lemon Law, there is no type of time limit or mileage limit that is required to be followed by the Lemon Law qualifications. As long as the problems that have came up started while the individual was still under the warranty then they can start their claim. The California’s Attorney General’s site can provide more information on this case, the website is listed below:

In the state of California what is the Lemon Law on vehicle repair who is bought from a dealership?

In the state of California the Lemon Law civil code 1793.2 d(2) states: “If the manufacturer or its representative in this state is unable to service or repair a new motor vehicle, as that term is defined in paragraph (2) of subdivision (e) of Section 1793.22, to conform to the applicable express warranties after a reasonable number of attempts, the manufacturer shall either promptly replace the new motor vehicle in accordance with subparagraph (A) or promptly make restitution to the buy in accordance with subparagraph (B). However, the buyer shall be free to elect restitution in lieu of replacement, and in no event shall the buyer be required by the manufacturer to accept a replacement vehicle.”

Many times when buying a vehicle from the manufacturer or a dealership we are not always satisfied with the results of the vehicle we just bought. Sometimes after buying a vehicle people come across many problems with that vehicle, and even though a dealership is often to be believed to fix that vehicle within the amount of the warranty that was given this is not always the case. That is where the Lemon Law protects those who run into repairs needed on their newly bought vehicle. For more information regarding the Lemon Laws contact the Experts online?
