There are thousands of vehicles sold in El Paso every year that are considered “lemons”, or vehicles with repeated unfixable problems.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) monitors and regulates car manufacturers during their recall processes. This recall process can be complicated to the average consumer.
When the recall process fails, El Paso consumers can pursue legal remedies through both state and federal laws.
El Paso consumers are protected by the Texas lemon law, which gives Texan consumers the legal tools they need to get the compensation they deserve. A qualified El Paso lemon law attorney can use these tools to help you navigate the often complex legal system.
What Texas laws can help me with my lemon car?
Texas car consumers are protected by the Texas lemon law, which applies to motor vehicles with two or more wheels intended to transport persons or property on public highways.
The Texas lemon law applies to new vehicles including cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, motor homes, TRVs and neighborhood electric vehicles. The Texas lemon law does not cover used or repossessed vehicles, non-travel trailers, boats, or farming equipment.
Problems covered by the Texas lemon law must “substantially impair the use or market value of the vehicle,” such as faulty brakes or malfunctioning engine. Small problems, such as a light rattle or car stereo problem, don’t count.
The Texas lemon law states a vehicle can be declared a lemon if it has a “serious defect or abnormal condition” covered by the manufacturer’s written warranty that is reported to the dealer or manufacturer within the warranty term. The owner must give the dealer or manufacturer a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair the problem, and the owner must give the manufacturer written notice of the defect and at least one opportunity for repair after notification.
