  • I bought a car from an online auto dealer out of state. He said the car was perfect but when it was delivered by truck I found

    Please tell me what I should do about fixing my problem,

    Ronald’s Answer

    Your inquiry was cut off so the entire situation is not present. You should start by reviewing the laws in the state where you purchased the car. If a warranty came with the vehicle, that could lead you in one direct. If the vehicle was sold "as is", then you would look in a different direction. For example, if the vehicle was sold "as is", then you might be looking for legal theories that involve fraud, misrepresentation and even UCC revocation of acceptance, among other theories.

  • Should I pursuit a suit against a car dealership

    I had a car dealership replace my power steering pump while I was in Alabama on vacation. Later that day while I was driving home to Ohio my serpentine belt broke causing my power steering pump to break along with other problems. I had my car towe...

    It may be difficult to answer your question specifically without knowing more information. If there was a warranty on the vehicle, then you would want to look to the terms of the warranty to determine what coverage you have. If the dealership (as opposed to the manufacturer) covered the repair costs, that leads me to believe that there was not a manufacturers warranty in place. Those are key starting points. There are various types of warranties and the situation is likely fact specific.

  • Do I qualify for the Michigan Lemon Law?

    I purchased a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu in Dec. 2010 with no problems until July 2013 when I was hearing a noise from my brakes. I went to get work repaired and was told it was time for fluid maintenance which I also had done. In November 2013 the noi...

    Ronald’s Answer

    The Michigan Lemon Law (M.C.L. 257.1401) has fairly specific requirements with respect to timing and the number of repairs. It sounds like your situation falls outside the lemon law itself, but there are several other legal theories that could/would apply. My office Is certainly happy to discuss or review your situation. The manufacturer is responsible for attorney fees in successful cases. The problems that you are experiencing with respect to your Malibu are fairly common for that vehicle. Feel free to contact me 248-737-8000 or through RWeiss@MichiganLemonLaw.com. It is definitely worth investigating. I hope this helps.

  • Today I bought a brand new 2014 Jeep. The salesman stated under the Ohio Lemon Law, Military members are exempt. Is this true ?

    The salesman was going over the paper work and told us that Military members are exempt from the Ohio Lemon Law and cannot file a claim. This sounds like serious Discrimination to me! I believe he is grossly misinformed about th...

    Ronald’s Answer

    The salesman is not correct. Assuming your vehicle meets the lemon law requirements, the fact that you are a military member does not limit your rights. Either the salesman is misinformed or misleading you, either way, it makes sense to continue to explore. I hope this helps.
