Re: Experience with Lemon Law
It depends on the state you live in. Make sure you have all the documentation. In NY state it's pretty simple. I had to use the lemon law as more of a threat. I had a used car lose a tranny after 3 days. Unfortunately I had driven across Ontario, Canada, from, NY and found myself stuck in Flunt, MI. The bill was paid but they didn't want to cover the 17 days of rental car. Eventually we worked this out in shop trade, to avoid small claims court, but seriously every time I took the car in, something else broke the next week. You might want to look at Legalzoom.com. They usually have much of the paperwork that can be filled out and filed with the state for a low price. Usually the dealer, will make things right, though we have terrible Jeep dealers in Western NY. I bought used from a ford dealer. Still many auto manufacturers have been overloaded with recalls and Chrysler is on the better side of this with Ford just getting hit today. Chevy still isn't selling the Cruze here. Toyota is also reeling. If you have access to a local law school, there are often people that can help,pro bono, if you are patient,Mohave the time. Have you tried a different JEEP dealer, or going to Dodge. If it's an engine issue, which it very much sounds like it is, electronic ignition, then all the dealers have the abilities and we all know service at dealerships can be like night and day. Also call a local consumer advocate. Search on line. Their is a lot of information to get things started.
