Stay on the Road by Knowing How the Tennessee Lemon Law Works

by | Dec 21, 2017 | Attorneys

When you discover your new automobile is less than perfect and defective, it can be a stressful situation. Especially, if the auto is the only one you own, and you are left without transportation while the car is not working. According to the Tennessee lemon law, consumers have the right to purchase a new auto within the state that will operate according to the manufactures specifications. If the auto fails to meet these stipulations, the owner has a right to have the auto repaired. Once the manufacturer has a reasonable amount of time and attempts to fix the issue, the owner can be compensated financially for the auto and any additional fees incurred.

Requirements to be Covered Under the State’s Law

One of the key factors in knowing the auto is covered under the Tennessee lemon law is the vehicle must be purchased or leased in the state. In addition to the auto weighing less than 10,000 pounds, this can include any off-road vehicles, tractors, motorcycles, or motorhomes. The defect must significantly damage the auto to affect the value of the car for the owner to be eligible for compensation of a defect vehicle. Once informed of the issue, a manufacturer is bound by law to fix the problem within a specified amount of time or compensate the buyer for finances lost in purchasing the car.
