Say Goodbye to Your Lemon with an Austin Lemon Law Lawyer

Nobody wants to get stuck with a defective vehicle. Maybe your vehicle’s engine starts unreliably or your brakes are locking frequently; either way, if there’s something seriously wrong with your car and it falls under warranty, you may be due compensation for the defective vehicle.

If you believe you have purchased a lemon, contact an Austin Lemon Law lawyer for a free evaluation. If your case is accepted, we will work to settle your case outside of court to minimize your expenses and maximize your compensation. However, if litigation appears to be the best option, we will work on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome. It’s important to note that the Texas Lemon Law statute requires that automobile manufacturers are given notice prior to filing a Lemon Law claim. This requirement encourages a negotiation to resolve these disputes. In these situations, automobile manufacturers may repurchase the vehicle or offer monetary compensation for your troubles.

Who is Covered by Texas Lemon Law?

If you purchase, repair, or register your vehicle in the State of Texas, it will be covered by Texas Lemon Law. The Lemon Law applies to new vehicles including:

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Vans
  • Motorcycles
  • All-terrain vehicles

As long as your vehicle is still covered by its written factory warranty and exhibits signs of severe mechanical issues, you can submit a claim against the manufacturer that produced the faulty vehicle. However, Texas Lemon Law does not cover any of the following:

  • Problems related to owner abuse, neglect, or unauthorized customizations
  • Unauthorized parts or components
  • Third party installations and repairs
  • Problems deemed “unsubstantial” that do not have a serious impact on the market value of the vehicle. For example, minor rattles and issues with sound systems are not covered under Texas Lemon Law.
