Large scale manufacturers produce, and consumers purchase, hundreds of thousands of vehicles (RVs, boats, cars, and trucks) a year. Many times, these items will have mechanical or design defects that cause vehicles to have non-stop problems that consumers should not have to put up with. For example:
Washington State and the U.S. have strong regulations in place designed to deter such unfair and deceptive business practices:
Washington Law That May Provide You Relief
Your car is a “lemon” if it has one or more significant defects that have been subject to a “reasonable number of attempts” to diagnose or repair the problem(s) covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. A manufacturer is required to repurchase or replace the vehicle with a non-conformity or serious safety defect after a reasonable number of attempts to correct the defect have occurred.
Federal Law That May Provide You Relief
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (“the Act”) protects consumers who bought a product worth more than $25.00 and has an express written warranty. The Act requires a warrantor (the dealer or seller) to perform repairs at least two or three times to correct a defect. If the defect persists, you may be entitled to relief, including repurchase of the vehicle, a trade-in, or a refund and payment of your attorney’s fees and costs.
