EPISODE 51 ~ TOP TIP: How To Get The Manufacturer To Give You A Brand New Car

To most people, the term “lemon” refers to a crummy used car. However, to the government, a lemon is a crummy new car. YES! Each state’s lemon law is a little different but, generally, you must have purchased or leased the car brand new. Each state sets a time and mileage limit. For example, you may be required to make a lemon law claim within 15 months or 15,000 miles of buying the vehicle.
Each state also defines what counts as a lemon. For example, in one state if the dealer can’t correct critical brake or steering problems in one try, the car is considered a lemon. In another state, a car is defined as a lemon if the dealer has tried and failed three times to repair the same flaw. In a third state, the lemon law covers new cars that have been in the shop for a cumulative total of more than 30 days.
Here’s what great about lemon laws and why I wanted you to know: Once all the dealer’s repair attempts have been exhausted, the manufacturer is required to repair —or replace— your car. Fingers crossed for a replacement!
