3 Situations When the Ohio Lemon Law Can Help

The Ohio Lemon Law can be a very useful tool when it comes to dealing with dealerships and car manufacturers. It is not the type of law that you can use just because you do not feel like the dealership is making enough of an attempt to get your vehicle in for repairs but there are 3 clear cut situations when the Ohio Lemon Law can be the best solution.

When Can the Law Be Used?

Like all laws these laws have very specific guidelines. Following the guidelines will provide you with direction as to when it is time to move forward using the lemon laws. Of course, a good attorney can answer any of your questions and give you the advice that you need to decide whether your situation warrants a lemon law case. Here are 3 situations when the lemon laws can be used to help you get some reprieve from a lemon vehicle:

1. You have had your car/truck at the dealership for one or more problems that affect your ability to use the car/truck, effect the safety of the vehicle or is a part covered under warranty.
2. The problems started within the first 18,000 miles or the first year of ownership (which ever comes first).
3.  If the problem was discovered late in the period covered by the lemon law (12 months or 18,000 miles) and the attempted repairs started before that expiration period but the period is up and the problem has not been repaired.

The lemon laws for this state are not what you would call “generous” but they will get the job done. A good attorney will also help you to manage the situation and may have other lemon law solutions for you if your situation does not fall in one of the above categories. Krohn & Moss, Ltd.
