Do You Have A Lemon? You May Be Entitled To Compensation!

Virginia Lemon Law Attorney

Do you have a lemon?

A "lemon" is a product or appliance that has a defect that substantially impairs its functionality. You must have purchased or began the lease term after January 1, 1987. In the state of Virginia, lemon laws apply to vehicles under the assumption that it is a major consumer purchase that, when defective, can cause a serious hardship for the consumer. In order to qualify under Lemon Law, your property must require multiple repairs while under the manufacturer's factory warranty. These repairs must be made by the manufacturer, dealership, or other authorized auto diagnostic center in order to maintain coverage under the warranty. Virginia takes lemon law cases seriously and maintains that repairs must be made within a specific period of time or the consumer will be given a full refund, replacement vehicle, etc.

While the state of Virginia's Lemon Law only covers motor vehicles, federal Lemon Law applies to any product or appliance that costs more than $25 and comes with a written warranty. Used vehicles are covered under federal lemon law if you have a manufacturer's warranty, original or extended. The majority of people who have yet to go through a lemon case believe lemon laws only apply to motor vehicles. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act provides for consumers on a federal level. It protects the buyer of all types of consumer products including cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, RVs, boats, computers, home appliances, as well as many other consumer appliances and products.

What should you do about your lemon in Virginia?

If you are the not-quite-proud owner of a lemon, it is important that you obtain a Virginia lemon law lawyer as soon as possible. Do not let warrantors string you along while they repair your vehicle, product, or appliance over and over. Enough is enough. It is time for you to do something about your lemon that will get you definite and permanent results. Virginia's Lemon Law rights period ends eighteen months after the date of the original delivery of the new motor vehicle, so you must report any defects within that window for a state case.

At The National Lemon Law Center, we are experienced and knowledgeable of lemon laws on the federal level as well as the variations between states. Under federal lemon law, there is something called a fee-shifting provision. The attorney fees go straight to the manufacturer if you have a lemon. Do not hesitate to make the call that will get you out of this frustrating situation.
