Hi, can I sue for the dealership not fixing my car correctly until this day?

Asked over 1 year ago - Imperial, MO

I have had many issues with my car, in 2011 I took my car the dealership about 10 times. But one of the problems continue to happen and they always dismiss me, they decide to fix it in feb 2013, but the service engine came again, the same problem. I have all the repairs that show the 2.5 low oil, and service engine light on, death rattle notice.

    Answered . Death Rattle? Must be a Chrysler... if your vehicle is covered by the factory warranty, then they are obligated to get it fixed within a reasonable number of chances and within a reasonable amount of time. That's the law in every state. If they don't then you have the right to file a claim against them for breaching the warranty. That's where the law can be a little different from state to state though. You need to talk to a local Lemon Law attorney. You can go to this web site page for a Free Online 50 State National List of Consumer Law Lawyers (www.USLemonLawyers.com) and find one near you (lawyers don’t pay to get listed here and most of them are members of the only national association for Consumer Law lawyers, NACA.net). You can also look for one here on Avvo under the Find a Lawyer tab. Or you can call your local attorney's Bar Association and ask for a referral to a Consumer Law attorney near you. But act quickly because for every legal right you have, there is only a limited amount of time to actually file a lawsuit in court or your rights expire (it's called the statute of limitations), so don't waste your time getting to a Lemon Law attorney and finding out what your rights are.
