Can The Manufacturer Resell Or Re-Lease A Lemon Vehicle?

Yes, but the dealer or leasing company must give the consumer who buys such a vehicle a written notice stating that the vehicle was returned to the manufacturer because of a nonconformity not cured within a reasonable time.

On occasion, vehicles are repurchased by the manufacturer before there is any action under the Lemon Law. The written notice is not necessarily given to consumers who purchase these types of buy back vehicles. So, if you are purchasing a used vehicle, ask if it was repurchased by the manufacturer because it was involved in a Lemon Law dispute.
