What is Michigan Lemon Law?

Many new and used vehicles have persistent mechanical problems usually due to a slight error that occurs during the manufacturing process.

In many cases the manufacturer will buy the the vehicle back from the consumer. This is referred to in the automotive world as a manufacturer buyback.

It protects vehicle owners who find themselves stuck with one of these problem cars. Although the lemon laws in Michigan are different than those in other states, the core elements of the law remain the same.

Some important tips to follow:

1. If you think you might have recently purchased a vehicle with serious problems, do not delay in contacting a lawyer well-versed in Michigan Lemon Law to see what your rights may be.

2. Keep clear records of all issues concerning the car, especially maintenance records (where was it serviced, on what date, what exactly was done, etc.)

Also, keep in mind that the quicker you take action, the more likely you are to receive retribution or even a replacement vehicle. So don't delay!
