This cheat sheet with teach you how to protect your lemon law rights long before you ever need to enforce those rights.
Tip 1 - Take the car to the dealership
If you are having problems with your vehicle, take it to the dealer. If you don't, you run the risk of the warranty expiring, the problem getting worse and affecting other components or losing the opportunity to file a lemon law claim later.
Tip 2 - Get documentation of all your problems
When you take your car to the dealer, make sure the repair records accurately reflect all of your complaints and what the dealer did to address your complaints.
Tip 3 - Keep all of your documents
Keep all of your records, including the purchase contract, maintenance records, and repair records. An attorney will need the documentation to give you a free case evaluation and to represent you in a lemon law claim, should it come to that.
Tip 4 - Contact a lemon law attorney
If you find yourself having to bring the car to the dealer multiple times for the same problem, you might have a lemon on your hands and you might be entitled to a refund of your money. Contact a lemon law attorney for help.
