What Are The Refund And Replacement Eligibility Requirements?
Write to the manufacturer, zone representative or authorized dealer notifying them of the problem. Specifically state that your car is a lemon and that you want a buyback under the lemon law. This does two things:
- It gives the company an opportunity to fix the defect (the manufacturer gets one more chance to fix the defect after notification); and,
- It lets the company know you plan to use Minnesota`s lemon law if the defect is not properly repaired.
Try to resolve the problem through the manufacturer`s automobile dispute arbitration program.
The manufacturer may require you to first go through the arbitration program before filing a lawsuit under the lemon law. Check with the manufacturer or the Minnesota Attorney General`s Consumer Division if you have questions about a manufacturer`s arbitration program.
The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
