You begin to wonder, is my vehicle a lemon?

According to Ohio's Attorney General, an estimated 150,000 of all new motor vehicles sold every year in the United States are lemons. A lawyer can help you enforce your legal rights when you have persistent problems that a dealer has failed to or refused to repair in a timely fashion.

The lawyers at Laursen & Lucas, LLC have combined more than 30 years of legal experience, have handled thousands of cases and achieved hundreds of thousands of dollar in settlements with the manufacturers of these vehicles.

What's a lemon?

The Ohio Lemon Laws apply to "new"

passenger cars
noncommercial trucks

with problems that occur in the first year of ownership or first 18,000 miles of use, whichever comes first.

Manufacturers have a duty to repair defects or non-conformities that are brought to their attention during the warranty period. But sometimes they fail to fulfill their obligations.

If the manufacturer fails to fulfill its obligations, and the problems substantially impair the use, safety or value, of your vehicle, you may have a lemon.

What can happen if you have a lemon?

Don't wait to get legal help.

The Ohio Lemon Law is a great tool to use when you have problems that cannot seem to be fixed in a reasonable time or number of attempts. It allows you to get rid of your lemon.

If the vehicle qualifies as a lemon, you can be entitled to get back what you have paid for that vehicle or get a replacement vehicle.

If you decide to get your money back, you will also be entitled to have your loan paid off, get back out-of-pocket costs such as towing, rental cars, repairs paid, and more. In addition, you can ask for the manufacturer to pay your attorney's fees.

What if you don't have a lemon?

Don't despair.

Even if you do not have lemon there are various other laws in Ohio which can be used to recover money for consumers who do not meet the strict definitions contained in Ohio’s Lemon Law.

These laws can apply to other consumer goods such as commercial vehicles, jet skis, campers, appliances, and more.

What if I purchased a used vehicle?

You can still get help. Consumer laws protect the buyers of used cars, too. Laursen & Lucas, LLC can also help if you purchased your problem vehicle used.
