Lemon Law Phoenix


Area of Law: 

If your new vehicle has undergone numerous repairs and is still not operating according to reasonable standards of performance and quality, you may be able to seek relief under the lemon law Phoenix.  The majority of new vehicles come with a manufacturer’s warranty assuring the purchaser that the vehicle will operate without a problem for a stated period of time or mileage. The lemon law Phoenix was enacted to protect you from the breach of the vehicle’s warranty by the manufacturer. In addition, the federal government has enacted lemon laws as well, referred to as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which protects individuals of all states, and may exceed the state’s law in certain instances.

Most vehicle warranties provide that an automobile will operate without issue for the stated period of the warranty. The length of the warranty can be stated in terms of a number of months, or an amount of mileage. If the manufacturer does not honor the warranty, you can file a complaint against the manufacturer stating the lemon laws of Arizona as the basis for your complaint. In addition, if your vehicle has undergone numerous repair attempts but still does not operate according to reasonable quality and performance, you may be able to seek relief through the lemon laws of Arizona.

The Arizona lemon law applies to all new cars that have a problem that substantially interferes with use and value of the car. For the car to be deemed a lemon, the manufacturer must be unable to repair the vehicle after attempting four separate repairs or the car must be out of service for at least 30 days in a calendar year. If either of these two criteria are met, the manufacturer must either replace the vehicle with a new vehicle, or accept the return of the vehicle. If you have a new car, the Arizona lemon law applies for two years or 24,000 miles. If the manufacturer’s warranty covers a different term, the lemon law Phoenix will apply to whichever term is shorter. The term begins on the date that you receive the vehicle. In addition, if you purchase a used vehicle, your car may be covered under the Arizona used car lemon law if a major component breaks on the vehicle within 15 days or 500 miles, whichever occurs first, after you purchase the used vehicle.

The automobile’s warranty can be very confusing and it is best to seek legal assistance to determine if your automobile’s repairs are included as part of the warranty.
