Have you recently purchased a new vehicle that has fallen prey to defect after defect? Or the same defect over and over and over, with no resolution? If so, you just may be eligible to receive compensation or replacement under the lemon law. Both Kentucky and the Federal government have created these laws to protect the investment of consumers and have successfully helped thousands of people find a solution to their problem without ever paying a penny for their lemon law attorney.
If you’re wondering whether or not your specific vehicle qualifies under the lemon law, keep reading as we talk more about this law below.
How Can a Vehicle Qualify Under the Lemon Law?
The Kentucky lemon law states that if a new vehicle undergoes four repair attempts or is being serviced for 30 days or more during the first year or first 12,000 miles of ownership, then the vehicle qualifies as a “lemon.”
If your vehicle qualifies under the above-mentioned description, contact the lemon law attorneys at Clagett & Barnett for a free review of your vehicle repair history. Don’t leave it up to chance, and don’t put too much trust in what others say. Our lawyers are quite well-versed in the details of both the Federal lemon law and the Kentucky lemon law and know exactly how a vehicle qualifies.
If your lemon law attorney determines that your car’s repair history while under warranty is sufficient to qualify you for damages, you will be eligible to receive compensation in the form of a full refund or a comparable replacement vehicle.
What Types of Vehicles Qualify Under the Lemon Law?
In Kentucky, the law states that new car manufacturers are required to provide their consumers with a cost-free informal dispute resolution system. Your vehicle qualifies if it:
- Has at least four wheels and is used primarily for personal, family, or household purposes,
- Has never been sold or transferred before,
- A dispute was entered during the first two years or 25,000 miles of ownership, whichever occurs first,
- Was purchased in Kentucky and the owner currently resides in Kentucky
The types of vehicles that may qualify under the lemon law include:
- Recreational Vehicles (RVs)
