When an automobile is manufactured, they are created to be functional and safe while being driven. Consumers trust that the manufacturer and car dealer is supplying them with a quality auto for them to purchase. Yet, when the automobile does not operate properly or is unsafe to drive, the owner has the right to request that the car is repaired. If the manufacturer is unable to repair the car, the consumer then has a right to be compensated for the auto and the company take the car back from the owner. The Illinois Lemon Law was created to help prevent consumers from being stuck with a car that will not operate correctly.
What to Do if You Suspect Your Car is Defective
* If you are having issues with a car you just bought, you want to start documenting any problems you are experiencing.
* You should keep all receipts that pertain to repairs.
* If you see a pattern, it is vital that you continue to keep accurate records of the repairs and how long it is out of service.
* The manufacturer or dealer has at least four chances to repair the auto before it can be considered a lemon.
* After the 4th repair, if the car is still not functioning properly contact an attorney that specializes in Illinois Lemon Law.
