Lemon Law Claims: When A New Car Goes Bad
Buying a new car is an exciting purchase. Yet that excitement can quickly deflate into stress and headaches if the vehicle turns out to be defective. You shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial burden of such a vehicle. Fortunately, you may have rights under Mississippi’s lemon law.
At Lentz & Little, PA, in Gulfport, we can help you assess whether you have a lemon law claim for a defective vehicle. Our lawyers are familiar with the nuances of this law and how to successfully pursue these claims. We can give you a straight answer on your rights and what to expect.
What To Know About Mississippi’s Lemon Law
Our state’s lemon law applies to new or used vehicles under warranty. If the vehicle needs repeated repairs for the same defect or needs substantial repairs for a mechanical issue, you may be entitled to a refund or replacement vehicle through the manufacturer.
The law has specific eligibility criteria. Additionally, there are strict time limits involved. It’s wise to involve a lawyer as soon as possible to avoid missing deadlines and ensure that you follow the right claims process.
We’re On Your Side
As much as they may profess to be on your side, the car dealer and the manufacturer are ultimately looking out for their own bottom line, not yours. They may drag their heels and deny that anything is wrong even when your repair bills show otherwise. We can be your advocate. Our firm has a strong and respected reputation as a result of our hard work and determination in standing up for consumers.
