What Is The Manufacturer's Duty To Refund Or Replace?
- Four or more unsuccessful attempts to repair the same defect; or
- One unsuccessful attempt to repair a defect which has caused the complete failure of the steering or braking system and which is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury; or,
- A car which has been out of service due to warranty repairs for 30 or more cumulative business days.
In each case the initial defect must occur within the warranty period, or two years, whichever comes first, but the manufacturer`s repair attempts may extend to the end of the third year. Even if you do meet one of the above categories, you may still have a lemon law claim, but it will be harder to prove.
