Area of Law:
Kimmel and Silverman uses the Michigan Lemon Law and various Federal warranty statutes to provide 100% cost-free legal help to distressed MI drivers.
The Michigan Lemon Law applies to new cars that suffer a nonconformity; a defect or condition, which substantially impairs the use, value or safety; that cannot be repaired after four attempts by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This nonconformity must first occur within the first year of ownership, or the express warranty period, whichever comes first. The Michigan Lemon Law also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year or the express warranty period (whichever comes first).
The Michigan Lemon Law covers vehicles used for personal, family and household purposes. The MI Lemon Law does not cover larger trucks, motorcycles, motor homes or off-road vehicles.
It's important to note that even if your car falls outside of the limitations established by the Lemon Law, there are still Federal breach of warranty laws which apply. If your car has an original or extended manufacturer's warranty and has a problem that can't be fixed after three repair attempts, chances are we can help you.
The Lemon Law can be confusing and is open up to numerous interpretations if you don't understand how it works.
