Washington Law That May Provide You Relief


Your car is a “lemon” if it has one or more significant defects that have been subject to a “reasonable number of attempts” to diagnose or repair the problem(s) covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.  A manufacturer is required to repurchase or replace the vehicle with a non-conformity or serious safety defect after a reasonable number of attempts to correct the defect have occurred.


Federal Law That May Provide You Relief


The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (“the Act”) protects consumers who bought a product worth more than $25.00 and has an express written warranty.  The Act requires a warrantor (the dealer or seller) to perform repairs at least two or three times to correct a defect.  If the defect persists, you may be entitled to relief, including repurchase of the vehicle, a trade-in, or a refund and payment of your attorney’s fees and costs.
