North Carolina (NC) Lemon Law Lawyer

Lemon Laws for Used Cars in North Carolina (NC)

Used cars offer some advantages over new cars. Used cars are not as expensive as comparable new models, and do not depreciate in value as quickly as new cars. Of course, used cars are not immune from serious defects. If you have reason to believe that your used car is a lemon, you need to take action to protect your rights as soon as possible. I am Raleigh consumer protection attorney Richard A. McNeil. I have devoted my law practice to helping consumers across the entire state of North Carolina who bought defective vehicles, including used cars.

Although North Carolina's Lemon Law does not apply to used cars, you may still have potential legal remedies. The federal law known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act applies to used vehicles that are still under the original manufacturer warranty.

Under this law, if your used car cannot be repaired after a reasonable period of time, or over a reasonable number of attempts, you are entitled to a cash settlement that represents the loss in value your vehicle has suffered as a result of its defects. In addition, this law also provides for attorney's fees. Therefore, there is no added expense for you to hire an experienced, aggressive lemon law attorney. You can trust that I will be a strong advocate for your interests in negotiations, and if necessary, litigation against your opposition. I will also offer trusted counsel and advice based on helping countless consumers across North Carolina.

Unfortunately, if you bought a used car "as-is" that turned out to be a lemon, neither the state or federal laws apply to your car. You may still have legal recourse if the automobile dealer made material misstatements or otherwise misled you in regards to the purchase of your vehicle. Our firm does not practice in this area however.
