What is Virginia Lemon Law?

Many new and used vehicles unfortunately have serious mechanical issues due to a problem with the manufacturing process. In most cases the manufacturer will buy the vehicle back from the consumer, which is why it is often referred to as a manufacturer buyback.

Virginia Lemon Law protects vehicle purchasers who find themselves stuck with one of these problematic vehicles. 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 might have recently purchased a vehicle with serious problems, do not delay in contacting a lawyer to see what your rights may be.

2. Keep records of all issues concerning the car, 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 vehicle There might be a free fix to your problem.

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