Being able to purchase a new car feels great. You drive out of the dealership and feel like you rule the road. That is why it is such a huge letdown when your vehicle starts to fail on you a couple of days, weeks, or months after purchasing it. You might have a lemon. An Ohio Lemon Law attorney can help you verify if your vehicle is a lemon or not.
In 1987, the Ohio legislature passed a comprehensive Lemon Law. This law requires automakers to repair defects that affect a new car’s safety, functionality, or value during the first 12 months of operation or within the first 18,000 miles. For this reason, if you have problems with your new vehicle, you should take it right away to an authorized dealer to get it repaired. The Lemon Law in Ohio covers light-duty trucks and cars that have been leased or purchased.
When determining if your vehicle qualifies as a lemon, your Ohio Lemon Law attorney will investigate to see if the manufacturer or dealer has been given sufficient time to fix the problem. If the problem is not repaired within a reasonable time, you may be eligible for a replacement vehicle or a refund. Manufacturers that fail to comply with Ohio’s Lemon Law also violate the state’s Customer Sales Protection Act.
