LEMON LAW

MCL 257.1401, et. seq.

For new cars purchased in the State of Michigan or by residents of the State of Michigan

 


HAVING MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH YOUR CAR?

YOU MIGHT BE PROTECTED IF. . .

For cars purchased after January 1, 1999;

1.Car must be New, leased or used and under the manufacturer's warranty.
2.The same defect or condition occurring.
3.That defect or condition impairs the use or value of car such that the car does not confirm to the warranty (warranty is breached).
4.Timing:
      1st complaint within 1 year of delivery to consumer (you)
AND
      30 days or parts of days out of service within 1st year of ownership
OR
      4 or more repair attempts have failed to cure or repair the defect or condition and repairs must be within 2 years of 1st repair attempt on that defect or condition.

 

IF ALL THE ABOVE IS TRUE OR YOU THINK IT IS TRUE, then you might have a LEMON that an attorney can get the car manufacturer (FORD, GM, CHRYSLER, HONDA ETC...) buy back from you and repay you your out of pocket expenses plus attorney fees paid by you to get them to purchase your car.

 


NOTE: The Lemon Law has recently been updated by the State Legislature. For all motor vehicles purchased after January 1, 1999 different standards apply. The revised statute requires that four repair attempts be made within two years of the first reported problem, and that the first reported problem occur within the first year after purchase OR the motor vehicle be out of service for at least thirty days within one year from the date of purchase.
