Let’s play the What If Game:
You’ve just signed the paperwork on a brand new car. All excited about dropping some of your hard-earned dough on a new daily driver, you go out fo a spin after taking delivery. You notice it hiccup slightly as you move through the rev range. You don’t let that kill your joy but decide to take it to the dealer the next morning.
You drop it back off at the dealer service department and get a call from the service advisor that the issue has been fixed with new spark plugs. You pick your shiny new car up that night and as your driving it home the hiccup happens again. Frustrated you pull a Vin Diesel’esque U-Turn and head back to the shop. It’s closed so you leave your car in the lot and decide to call the Service Advisor in the morning.
The service dept. agrees to take another look at the vehicle and shortly thereafter you get another call from the advisor saying it’s all fixed and it’s ready for pickup. You pick it up and the same thing happens. That pesky hiccup is back. You call the service department irate at this point and start the cycle all over again for the third and fourth times.
At this point, you might be starting to think you have yourself a Lemon.This might be true depending on your state. It’s always best to call a specialist on the Lemon Laws in your state for advice. These laws, like many, can be tricky to navigate. But, as Lehto’s Law does below, it’s not impossible, especially with the right help.
