If you bought a new or used vehicle that requires constant warranty repairs, you may have a lemon on your hands. If this is the case, you have rights. I am attorney Richard A. McNeil. My law firm focuses on helping consumers who have purchased defective motor vehicles.
In North Carolina, consumers can turn to two laws to protect their interests. The New Motor Vehicle Warranties Act, also known as North Carolina's Lemon Law, offers powerful protection to consumers who have purchased a new car that turns out to be a lemon. Contact me, a Lemon Law attorney in North Carolina, to discuss how this law applies to your situation.
Experienced Representation From a Consumer Rights Attorney, Serving Raleigh and all of North Carolina
North Carolina's Lemon Law does not apply to used cars. However, consumers who bought a defective used car still under warranty may still have remedies under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal law. As an experienced warranty law attorney, I have a full understanding of these laws and how they apply to your circumstances:
- Lemon Law for new cars in North Carolina: If in the first 24,000 miles or 24 months, your car has been presented for repair four or more times for the same defect, or if you have had to leave it at the repairing dealer for 20 or more business days, it will be presumed to be a lemon.
- Lemon Law for trucks and motorcycles: North Carolina's Lemon Law applies to vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds. Therefore, all motorcycles and most passenger trucks are under the protection of North Carolina's Lemon Law.
- Lemon Law for used cars: If you purchased a used car that is still covered under the manufacturer warranty, you may have remedies under federal law.
In all cases, if we can show that you bought a lemon, you will have your choice of legal remedies. You can either get a replacement for your vehicle or a refund of your purchase price, minus a statutory mileage deduction. In the alternative, we may be able to recover a cash settlement that represents the loss in value your vehicle may suffer due to its problems.
