The Michigan Lemon Law exists to assist consumers who have defective cars. Our attorneys have settled and/or litigated thousands of claims on behalf of individuals with lemon cars.
You are presumed to have satisfied the requirements of the Michigan Lemon Law if your car has been presented for warranty repairs as follows:
(1) Either four times for the same defect or condition and the problem must continue; or
(2) The car was out of service for 30 days during the first year of ownership due to repairs.
Please contact one of our attorneys to determine if you meet the requirements of the Michigan lemon law. The lemon law, like many laws, is open to interpretation, and a consumer should rely on the advice of one of our Michigan lemon law attorneys to determine if the lemon law has been satisfied. One of the main arguments that manufacturers make is that even if the car’s repair history satisfies the above requirements the defects do not substantially impair the use or value of the car. The test of “substantial impairment” under the lemon law however is based on a subjective standard. That is, the impairment must be viewed from its impact on the consumer. Our Michigan lemon law attorneys are able to inform you whether your car’s defects meet this requirement as well. If your car meets the Michigan lemon law you may be entitled to a refund of the car’s purchase price or a replacement car.
Even if your repair history does not satisfy the lemon law, our Michigan lemon law attorneys can assess if your car’s repair history is sufficient to qualify you for damages under the federal lemon law known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. This law requires that your vehicle be presented for repeated repairs. This is a very effective law that helps to provide consumers money damages and sometimes repurchase/replacement relief when the Michigan lemon law may not apply.
Our Michigan lemon law attorneys may also determine that other consumer based state laws may apply to the specifics of your particular case. Please contact us so that we may assess whether you qualify for help under the Michigan lemon law, the federal lemon law/Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, or other state laws.
The Michigan lemon law and other laws cited above require the manufacturer to pay you attorney fees. Therefore, any advice or actual representation that our Michigan lemon law attorneys provide to our clients will be done at no charge to you.
Is Your Car a Lemon under the Michigan Lemon Law?
If you have a 2010 or newer model year vehicle that has had repeated repairs or has been out of service for several days, it may be a lemon under the Michigan Lemon Law and you may be entitled to a cash settlement, refund or a new car.
