If you have a lemon, complaints must be made to the manufacturer, not your vehicle dealer. The manufacturer must either:
- Replace your vehicle with a new one (may or may not be the same model).
- Take the vehicle back and provide a refund for:
- The full contract price of the vehicle.
- Sales tax, registration fees, and other related fees.
- Charges incurred due to the vehicle defect.
- Any transportation charges that incurred due to the vehicle being inoperative.
If you're unable to settle the dispute with the vehicle manufacturer, you can file a civil complaint and have the issue handled in court. A lemon law attorney should be able to advise you of your options.
