To begin the lemon law process, you must first notify the manufacturer by certified mail of the issue. (Check your owner's manual to find out whom to contact).
If a manufacturer participates in an informal dispute resolution procedure, you must attempt a resolution this way before you can begin a lawsuit.
If the settlement offered is unsatisfactory, your next step is to file suit. The suit must be filed:
- Within 6 months following the expiration date of any warranty term.
- Within 1 year following the date of the original delivery of the vehicle to you, whichever comes sooner.
Remember, whether you're in arbitration or proceeding with a lawsuit, a CO lemon law attorney can be a huge asset and can work to get you the compensation you deserve or a replacement vehicle.
