In sending your letter, remember:
- A letter can be sent to the manufacturer after your second unsuccessful attempt to repair the same problem or if the defects still exist after 20 cumulative days out of service.
- Your letter must be sent by certified mailreturn receipt requested.
- It must be sent before 18,000 miles or two years, whichever occurs first.
- Address the letter to the manufacturer.
- Be sure to include your name, address and telephone number.
If, after contacting the manufacturer, your problem(s) still exist, you should send the Lemon Law Unit photocopies of the final repair letter, the certified mail return receipt, and repair orders and a brief description of the manufacturer`s response. At this time you should also request an application for Lemon Law Dispute Resolution.
