Do I Have The Same Protection As A New Car Buyer?
If an automaker or its authorized dealer sells a returned lemon as a used vehicle without giving you the notice and the warranty, it could be a violation of the Consumer Sales Practices Act. If this is the case, Attorney General Montgomery can file a legal action against the automaker or its dealer for a refund of the purchase price and seek a civil penalty. You also have the right to file your own lawsuit to recover your money.
Any vehicle returned to the automaker for a problem that could cause death or serious injury may not be sold in the State of Ohio.
