Top 5 Car Company Tricks - To Avoid Responsibility For Your Lemon!
Taking back your LEMON or compensating you for your inconvenience is the legal obligation of the car company. Unfortunately, this costs them money and many will go to great lengths to keep you from taking advantage of your rights under the Lemon Laws.
Here are five (5) common "tricks" car companies use to avoid their legal obligations to consumers:
Car Company Trick #1 - Saying You Do Not Have the Right Number of Repair Attempts.
The law is very specific in regards to this matter. But dealers commonly mis-code the reason for the visit so it "appears" that you have not been there for the same reason.
Car Company Trick #2 - Saying the Defect Never Existed or Not the Same Defect.
This is very common and can be very insulting – and damaging to your case! It’s as if you were imagining the car breaking down on Interstate 70.
Car Company Trick #3 - Saying the Defect is Not "Substantial."
The fact is that the defect does not need to be substantial under the Federal Lemon Law. The defect must substantially impair the use, value or safety under the State Lemon Law only. Of course, you do not want the dealer determining if it was "substantial,” many times they don’t share your interests.
Car Company Trick #4 Saying the Consumer Abused or Neglected the
This is a "responsibility shift" - your fault not ours. This is typically nonsense. For example, if the vehicle is advertised as an off road vehicle, it can be taken off road. If you have kept reasonable service records this "trick" is easily dealt with.
Car Company Trick #5 - Saying "That's Normal" or "They All Do That."
Wow! Where was that disclaimer when you bought the vehicle from the aggressive dealer? Today's vehicles should be reliable and operate as advertised. Settling for defects you "can live with" was never part of the bargain when you bought your new vehicle.
