The #1 Myth

It is not necessary to have a certain number of repairs within the first year or first 18,000 miles, no matter what you may have heard.

Four or more repairs for the same problem, or 30 days out of service for any combination of problems within the first 18 months or 18,000 miles may create a presumption that the car is a lemon. Most cars qualify under the Lemon Law because of repairs made after the first year and after the first 18,000 miles.

Newspapers, television, manufacturers, dealers, and even the some State agencies frequently give consumers the wrong information.

Protect Your Rights

The lemon law requirements are very technical, and the assistance of a lawyer is important to protect your rights.
