I bought a car that messed up and only drove like six miles and was wondering if I could get my money back?
Lemon Law Attorney
Every state has its own Lemon Law and whether your vehicle is a lemon depends on Indiana’s law and the facts of your case. You can read an outline of your state's Lemon Law on this web page here: http://ohiolemonlaw.com/state-lemon-law-summaries.htm. For Oklahoma, there are 2 definitions of a lemon and you only have to fit one of them (4 unsuccessful repair attempts or 45 calendar days out of service within shorter of 1 year or the warranty length). There is also a federal lemon law that covers almost all consumer purchases and it can help you too; it's called the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act. Some state lemon laws only cover vehicles purchased new and other state laws can cover used or new, so you have to read your state's particular law to know what your legal rights are. Generally, all state Lemon Laws require that you return the vehicle to the manufacturer's dealer for repair attempts at least 3 or 4 times for the same defect before you can claim it is a lemon, although there are other definitions of what a lemon can be in some states. If you do have a lemon, then you probably have the right to chose between getting your money back or getting a replacement vehicle. You should talk to a Lemon Law lawyer near you. Call your local attorney bar association and ask for a referral to a lemon law lawyer near you; Indiana has several. Or you can check for a Free Online 50 State national List of Local Lemon Law Lawyers at www.USLemonLawyers.com (lawyers don't pay to be listed there and most of them are members of the only national association of consumer law lawyers). Also, for every legal right you have, you only have a limited amount of time to actually file a lawsuit in court or you automatically lose (it's called the statute of limitations), so don't waste your time getting to an attorney and finding out what your rights are.
