Under Alabama’s Lemon Law, in order to file a complaint, you must first inform the dealership or the manufacturer of the issues and then secondly, file a formal complaint with the Alabama Office of the Attorney General’s Office of Consumer Affairs. You can either send this through the mail or do it online. You must supply all the proper documentation at the time you make your complaint. The documentation that must be included is:
* Receipts from when you purchased the vehicle, such as your contract, and any and all repair orders and bills.
* Proof of all written correspondence, including letters and emails, plus documentation supporting any and all phone calls between you, the dealership, and/or the manufacturer in your attempts to resolve the issue.
The more accurate your records are, the better your chances are at resolving the issues quickly and easily. In the state of Alabama there is a statute of limitations and any lawsuit or action regarding a lemon law issue must be filed within three years from the date of delivery of the vehicle.
