Alfa Romeo is a sporty Italian auto manufacturer that recently reintroduced a line of vehicles in the United States market. Known for their high-quality luxurious design and reliable construction, Alfa Romeo has quickly won over the hearts of many American consumers. However, recently more and more Alfa Romeo lemon vehicles have been reported. Because of recent reports, it’s important to properly evaluate your options with experienced Lemon Law Experts who can advise you on your best course of action.
What is a “Lemon Vehicle”?
A lemon vehicle is one that is under warranty and has defects that the manufacturer is unwilling or unable to fix. It’s important to remember that each state has its own set of lemon laws but, generally if your vehicle has a substantial impairment to its safety, use, or value, and Alfa Romeo cannot repair it in a reasonable number of repair attempts then you might have a lemon on your hands. When you purchase or lease an Alfa Romeo, the manufacturer or its representative is responsible for upholding any express warranties it made. If you wind up with a lemon and the manufacturer won’t repurchase, replace or compensate you, you will want to speak to a Lemon Law attorney about your legal options.
