What is Texas Lemon Law?

Oftentimes new and used vehicles have very serious mechanical issues. This is due to a problem that occurs during the manufacturing process, and in many cases the manufacturer will buy the car back from the consumer, which is why it is referred to as a manufacturer buyback.

Texas lemon laws protect consumers that find themselves stuck with one of these problematic cars. Although the specific statutes differ from state to state, the basic principles of the law remain the same nationwide.

Some tips to follow:

1. If you think you may have one of these vehicles, do not delay in contacting a lawyer to see what your you may be entitled to in terms of retribution.

2. Keep very detailed records of everything concerning this vehicle, especially maintenance records (where was it serviced, on what date, what exactly was done, etc.)

3. Find out if there are any current recalls and/or technical service bulletins (TSBs) for your car. There might be a fix for your problem that the manufacturer has become aware of.

The law is on your side, so don't be afraid to pursue your case. Also, the sooner you act, the more likely you are to receive retribution or a new vehicle.
