When you purchase or lease a new motor vehicle, you expect that it will provide you with safe and reliable transportation. This is why it can be so frustrating when significant faults or defects the dealer has failed to repair successfully provide you with grounds to pursue a breach-of-warranty claim.
Both state and federal lemon laws may be applicable in your vehicle case. These give you an opportunity to obtain a replacement vehicle, settlement, or refund.
Any significant defect, including those that compromise the safety of the car, might prompt you to first let the dealer or manufacturer make an effort to repair. But if you’ve already been through multiple repairs with no resolution, legal action might be necessary.
