Lemon Law and Warranty Law: Problems With Used Vehicles

Buying a used vehicle can sometimes feel like playing Russian roulette: you look over the lot, and you know some of the cars will eat up thousands of dollars in repairs, and some of them won’t. Of course, if the dealer knows about a serious defect you’ll be informed about it, right?

As a consumer, you have rights and protections under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and other state laws. If you bought a used car and it turned out to be a lemon, talk to Attorney Vince Megna of the Law Offices of Vince Megna in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by calling (414) 914-2803 or by contacting us online for a free consultation.

Your Rights Under Magnuson-Moss

If your used vehicle came with a warranty, the warrantor has an obligation to fulfill the terms of that warranty. Too often, they shirk this responsibility or try to convince you that your particular problems aren’t covered. If this has happened to you, read about the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (aka “Mag-Moss”) to learn your rights.

Did the Dealer Lie to You?

Used car dealers are not known for their honesty. Sometimes they roll back odometers. Sometimes they claim a used vehicle has had only one owner when in fact it used to be a rental. Sometimes they fail to tell you about serious – even dangerous – defects. And it’s all to make a sale. Learn more about dealer misrepresentation here.

Until you speak with a lawyer, you will have a hard time knowing whether or not your used vehicle qualifies for relief or if your dealer has behaved in a way that warrants litigation.
