I financed a 2016 Nissan Altima from Vicksburg Ford on 4/6/19. On 4/9/19 I had to take it back because of the oil light. They changed the oil. A week later it came on again. They told me to take it to a Nissan dealer to have it checked, so I did. The dealership told me I needed a motor. So, I went back to Vicksburg Ford and they took it to someone who specialize in foreign cars. It was there for about three weeks. So, I got it back drove it for about a week, light comes on again. I took it back to the Ford place. It has a warranty. They keep telling me that they are going to fix it but have not. I am tried of paying for a car I don't have or can not drive. I have not had that car in over 9 months. The dealership changed ownership but both have gave the run around.
This is not a lemon law case. With very few exceptions that do not apply here, lemon laws only apply to NEW cars.
You never stated what kind of warranty you have. Is it the balance of the manufacturer's warranty? Is it a dealer's warranty? Is it actually a service contract that you had to purchase separately?
Also, an attorney would need to review ALL of your relevant documents in order to give you any meaningful advice. I STRONGLY suggest that you consult with a local consumer protection attorney to determine your rights and options.
