Do I have a Lemon?

If you've purchaed a new car and all of a sudden notice that the paint is peeling or its making funny noises that you didn't notice before or perhaps you've noticed a dozen things that you no longer like then chances are the Lemon Laws will not apply to you.
If you can still drive the car then chances are
Lemon Law will not apply.

If the brakes do not work, the car won't get out of first gear, it won't start on cold mornings or hot afternoons, the driver's seats come loose, or the car splutters away at 20 mph when it should be going 50 mph, then Yes, you may have a Lemon thus the Lemon Law may apply to you providing you have given the maufactuer a chance to repair the defect.

In most States, 10 different defects during the Warranty Period does not brand the car as a Lemon. In some States, a single defect that might cause Serious Injury makes your car a Lemon if the manufacturer cannot fix the problem within 1 attempt.

Do I need a Lawyer

Well it depends on where you first purhased or registered the car. This of course varies from state to state. In some states if you have the proper documentation then all you have to do is file a complaint where as in other places you will need to hire a Lawyer.
