Who Pays For The Repairs?

Most manufacturers` warranties on purchased vehicles cover repairs for at least the first year following the original delivery date or the first 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.

If repairs are needed after your warranty has ended, you must pay for the repairs. Check your warranty booklet to find out the details of your particular coverage. If you are leasing a vehicle, check your leasing contract to find out who is responsible for repair bills.

Repair costs to cure defects that occurred while under the warranty coverage should be covered by your warranty, or if later proven to be a lemon under the law may be reimbursed. For this reason, remember to keep your receipts.
