Be Aware of a Defective Truck Purchase
Over 20 Years of Effective Results
Trucks that are under warranty are expected to perform up to a certain standard. If you have your new or used vehicle in and out of repair shops, despite the fact that you are still under the warranty, then you may have a lemon on your hands. Your truck manufacturer has the chance to right this wrong. When you submit your case to the manufacturer, they should willingly and cheerfully replace or repair the vehicle for you. If they refuse to do so, they may be in violation of consumer rights law, and you need a lawyer on your side who is experienced in pursuing these injustices.
When They Fight, I Fight Back
You do not have to be the original owner to have rights under lemon law jurisdiction. As long as your truck is still under warranty, the manufacturer has to stay true to its promise to provide you with a working vehicle. Each state has laws specific to the amount of time you have to report a problem, and I make sure you are within that time frame when working with your case.
Lemon laws vary according to state:
- In California, the truck lemon law applies to "new motor vehicles," meaning vehicles purchased and experiencing problems before the warranty is up. Often these are three-year warranties, though time varies.
- In Texas, the truck lemon law applies to vehicles that undergo an average of four "repair attempts" within the first 12-months of purchase. In the case of extreme safety problems, fewer attempts are sometimes still valid.
- In Louisiana, the truck lemon law applies to vehicles that were attempted to be repaired within the first year of purchase. However, you have three years to file a suit against the manufacturer.
