If you think you own a lemon vehicle, contact Allen Stewart here or call 866-440-2460
Thousands of vehicles sold in San Antonio every year are “lemons”, or vehicles with repeated unfixable problems.
Every manufacturer has produced lemons. They are monitored and regulated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This agency regulates the recall process, though this process can be complicated and intimidating.
San Antonio consumers can pursue legal remedies through both state and federal laws when the vehicle recall process fails.
San Antonio consumers are protected by the Texas lemon law, which provides Texan consumers the legal tools they need to get the compensation they deserve.
A qualified San Antonio 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 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.
Issues 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, aren’t covered by the law.
How can an attorney help me with my San Antonio lemon car?
Andrew Ross, a lemon law attorney with Allen Stewart, PC, said the entire process of seeking legal recourse through the courts can be incredibly taxing and complex.
“The legal system is just complicated,” Ross said. “It’s not designed to be user friendly. Without being an attorney, I think it’s nearly impossible to fully know what you have to do.”
Ross said he’s rarely seen a breach of warranty case end to a consumer’s satisfaction without qualified legal representation.
“Most of the time if car owners are contacting the manufacturer, the manufacturer will blow them off,” Ross said. “Normally it takes an attorney representing the consumer to send a serious letter to the manufacturer to get their attention and start to negotiate settlement, and if that is unsuccessful, proceed to trial.”
