May 28, 20 Know-How Oregon Lemon Law Protects You if You Purchase a Defective Vehicle

If you buy a defective vehicle, you could face costly repairs and be unable to use your it. Fortunately, Oregon Lemon Law provides a remedy. A manufacturer who sells a lemon must provide compensation, which may be monetary damages or a replacement vehicle.

What is a Lemon

A vehicle with a defect that cannot be repaired after a certain number of attempts or within a reasonable amount of time, as specified by state law is known as a lemon. The manufacturer has the right to try to repair the vehicle before you pursue compensation under Oregon lemon law.

What to Do if You Have a Lemon

If you believe you have bought a lemon, it’s important to keep all relevant records. These include all paperwork related to the sale of the vehicle, all paperwork related to the warranty or extended coverage and records of all attempted repairs and services. You will also need to provide a statement about the problems you’ve experienced with your vehicle. Because there is a time limit to pursue your case, it’s best to do it as soon as possible.

While seeking compensation may seem intimidating, it can be surprisingly easy with help from a good attorney. An attorney can evaluate your case and determine whether your vehicle qualifies. In addition to helping with the legal process, a good law firm specializing in lemon laws can investigate whether defects noted by a mechanic were hidden from you.
