Do You Have A Lemon? Get Help From A Louisville Consumer Protection Attorney.

It has been said that in life, there are no guarantees. This is why anyone can end up with a lemon. Even with a warranty, that expensive sports car, that midsized sedan or that environmentally efficient little coupe can fail because at least 1% of all vehicles manufactured have defects.

Holding Automobile Manufacturers Accountable!

A defective automobile can impact all parts of a person's daily life in Kentucky which is why the legislature has passed the Kentucky lemon law. This law is designed to help protect consumers when new vehicles prove to be defective or otherwise fail to perform to the standards set forth in the vehicle's warranty.

The Kentucky lemon law was passed with the sole purpose of providing means of protection to the lessees and purchasers of automobiles that have not been repaired despite the manufacturer of these vehicles being provided with a reasonable number of attempts to do so. If the manufacturer, through its dealers, fails to repair the vehicle in a timely fashion, the owner or lessee of the motor vehicle may be eligible for a refund or a replacement vehicle. It is made clear through the law that the buyer or lessee decides which relief is best suited for them. Likewise, if the manufacturer has violated the lemon law, the consumer will be eligible to choose if they would like a refund or a replacement vehicle.

What Is A Reasonable Number Of Repair Attempts?

Under the law, a buyer or a lessee of a motor vehicle must allow a manufacturer to make four repair attempts or give them a total of 30 days to repair the vehicle within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles of owning or leasing a vehicle. However, even if your case does not fit these parameters, it may still be possible to make a claim under the federal law standards. To determine which laws will help strengthen your claim and which gives you the best chance of relief, it is essential to seek guidance from experienced legal counsel.
