Pursuing a lemon law case is not as smooth and easy as we may presume. Most people will take in their cars for repair several times before they finally give up and file for a lemon case, only to learn that the case is potentially more challenging and more frustrating. There are cases where people had to deal with manufacturers that offered a small fraction of the car’s value, so the complainant did not have to keep the car. Such cases can go on like this for years without a resolution, especially when you do not have experienced Lemon law experts who know your rights.

What happens after winning the lemon law?
The two main results of winning a lemon law case are a full refund or the vehicle’s replacement. Here is a breakdown of what happens after you in the settlement.
Choosing the settlement
The first step is to choose between getting a full refund for the vehicle’s value, also known as the buyback, or a new car, which is a repurchase of the defective one. A refund is an excellent option if you intend to buy a different car or get it from a different manufacturer or dealer. The refund amount will include all the money you spend when buying the vehicle, inclusive of the following:
- Sales tax
- Title fee
- Finance charges
- Add-on fees
- Incidental damages
- License fees
The good news is that the law does not state you have to stick to the same brand and model of the vehicle, but you do have to use the same manufacturer. Ensure the vehicle you get as a replacement is as suitable as new and has all the features you would need for that price range. In some cases, the refund will not settle the loan if you put high mileage on the car, which means you will have to top up the balance to get a new one.

Who pays the lemon lawyer?
