What is the Virginia Lemon Law?

by | Feb 20, 2017 | Lawyers and Law Firms

The Virginia Lemon Law was set in place to protect the citizens of Virginia who have purchased or even leased a new car or truck that are failing to live up to the manufacturer’s warranty on the vehicle. This means that the car or truck has had nothing but problems that keep reoccurring from the time the car owner signed the paperwork to make the car or truck theirs.

Virginia works with federal laws to ensure that a car owner who has been given a faulty vehicle will get the car that they thought they were buying or leasing in the beginning. Of course, there are a few things that you should know about the Virginia Lemon Law before you file. Your best bet is to get in touch with the lawyers at Krohn & Moss Ltd.

What Vehicles are Covered?

The Virginia Lemon Law covers any defects in a car or truck that are covered by the warranty. These defects have to affect the value, safety or the use of the car or truck. The car must be unsafe and unfit to be used on the highways and byways of Virginia.

Before Hiring a Lawyer

Before you can seek any type of relief under the Virginia Lemon Law, you must first give the maker of the car time to fix the car for you. If after three times of sending the car in for repairs there is still no solution in sight, then you need to seek a solution. However, if the problem is life-threatening, the company has one chance, and you should seek a solution.
