If you purchased your used vehicle from a new car franchised dealer as a “Certified Pre-Owned” used vehicle, then you can enjoy many of the same lemon law benefits as the new car purchaser! These factory sponsored “CPO” (Certified Pre-Owned) vehicles come with a written warranty backed by the automobile manufacturer. So, even if your vehicle is out of the manufacturer’s original “new vehicle limited warranty”, you still have lemon law protection during the “Certified Pre-Owned” warranty period, just like a person that purchased new! Our experts will be able to fully brief you on your rights under the state and federal lemon laws with a “CPO” vehicle, as well as tell you if you have a pursuable case.
Warranty coverages afforded to Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are often overlooked by consumers (and dealers) when it comes to warranty repairs. Did you know that many vehicles sold “used” already had a pre-existing CPO warranty that stays with the car? If you purchased a vehicle used, you should always check with your dealer to see if there is existing factory CPO coverage. When it comes to lemon law, a warranty is a warranty. And lemon law is all about repairs under factory warranty.
All repairs must be performed by an authorized dealer for the brand of vehicle you have purchased to have the repairs done under factory warranty (and/or CPO warranty), making them legally applicable “repair attempts” under lemon law statute’s definition.
