Ford Lemon Law Information
Ford Motor Company, more commonly referred to simply as Ford, is an all-American multi-national automaker. It was founded in 1903 and has since become one of the largest and most profitable auto makers in the world. Ford manufacturers a wide range of vehicles including but not limited to sedans, SUVs, crossovers, trucks, vans, hybrids and electric vehicles.
If you have purchased or leased a Ford that has had multiple repairs while under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible your Ford is a lemon under your state’s lemon laws. If this is the case you are entitled to compensation for your defective Ford, which could include a refund, replacement or cash settlement for your defective vehicle.
Is Your Ford a Lemon?
There are both federal and state lemon laws that provide relief to vehicle owners who have purchased or leased a new or used Ford vehicle. If your Ford has been in for multiple repair attempts that started while under the warranty period, it might be a lemon. Also, if your Ford has been out of service for an extended period of time while under the warranty, once again, your vehicle might be a lemon. Finally, the problems that you are having with your Ford need to substantially impair the safety, they use or the value of the vehicle. This is often where there is a difference of opinion between the manufacturer and the consumer. What you as a consumer might consider a substantial impairment to the vehicle, the manufacturer on the other hand might simply consider a nuisance or an inconvenience. For this reason it is imperative to have a lemon law attorney on your side who understands your concerns with regard to your Ford vehicle and fight Ford to prove your concerns are substantial and not simply a nuisance.
