Nothing quite compares with the thrill of driving home from the dealership in a new or pre-owned car. Equally hard to match is the disappointment of realizing that your new ride is a lemon.
Newly purchased cars, whether new or used, are required by the Ohio Lemon Law to be reliable and worry-free, not continually in need of repairs. Contact one of our Lemon Law attorneys at O’Connor Acciani & Levy Co., LPA for information on how to tell if you have a qualified “lemon,” and get advice on how to proceed with your lemon law claim.
If your newly acquired car fails to live up to the dealer or manufacturer’s warranty, there are steps you can take to resolve your situation. The Lemon Law recommends trying this approach first.
Beware of any contract clauses which affect your rights as a consumer. Should the manufacturer refuse to cooperate, misrepresent your legal rights or make empty promises, then it’s time to hire a Lemon Law attorney to advise you and help you navigate the legal issues.
To be protected under the Ohio Lemon Law, owners of suspected lemons must take action within five years of purchase. The first year or 18,000 miles of owning the vehicle is critical in proving you have a bought a lemon. During this time, keep accurate records of the type and frequency of your car problems. Also important is documenting how many days your car is not available to you due to repairs during the first year you own it.
