Unfortunately, when you purchase a new vehicle, you don’t always receive a perfect model from the dealership. Sometimes, new vehicles arrive from the manufacturer with serious issues and will need to undergo excessive repairs, and a portion of these vehicles will never reach their potential because they are defective or breach their warranty. The Lemon Law in Texas aims to level the playing field for consumers and manufacturers in the Lone Star State by giving consumers legal recourse against manufacturers who produce lemon vehicles.
Consumers can benefit greatly from the Lemon Law rules in Texas, because these important rules protect them from vehicle warranty problems for cars, trucks, hybrids, and more. If you believe that you have purchased a lemon, the Law Office of Darin Siefkes, PLLC can help you reach a settlement with the manufacturer that covers the cost of the vehicle and any applicable damages.
Lemon Law is a consumer protection statute that affords purchasers of defective automobiles the option to take legal recourse against the dealer or manufacturer. In Texas, you can verify that your vehicle is a lemon by providing evidence such as documentation of the same repair performed four or more times within the first two years (or 24,000 miles), or by demonstrating that your vehicle has been out of commission for an extended duration during a rudimentary number of repairs. Providing this type of evidence allows you to substantiate your case.
Lemon Law in Texas can be specific, and many cases don’t pan out because the purchaser believes they have a lemon when that isn’t actually the case. Fortunately, our services include evaluating your vehicle to determine whether or not you have a valid case. Plus, if your vehicle doesn’t qualify as a lemon, the Law Office of Darin Siefkes, PLLC may be able to help you take advantage of other statutes to help you get compensation for your lemon.
The Law Office of Darin Siefkes, PLLC has handled hundreds of Texas Lemon Law cases. Every case is different, and your compensation will vary depending on the number of repairs your vehicle has undergone and the amount of time your vehicle has spent being serviced. You could be entitled to a repurchase in which the dealership compensates you for the vehicle, a brand new replacement, or monetary compensation. When you end up with a lemon on your hands, you can come out on top because the Lemon Law in Texas allows the consumer to renounce the faulty vehicle while getting back the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSPR) of the vehicle minus a usage fee.
