What if I had a defect but have not returned to a dealership for repair?
You may still have a claim. Take your vehicle to the dealership as soon as possible and report the problem. Make sure that this visit is documented on a repair order.

Am I responsible for the payment legal fees/costs?
No. The Lemon Law and Breach of Warranty statutes permit a prevailing party to recover attorney fees and costs from the manufacturer.
*An exception to this is any claim that falls solely under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). These claims are generally those for commercial vehicles (ie. heavy duty trucks) that are not manufactured for personal use. In these cases, a contingency agreement is signed with our clients. Under these agreements, our firm retains a percentage of any recovery received to recoup these costs and fees. If no recovery is received, our clients are still not responsible for the payment of these costs and fees.
How can I assist in strengthening my lemon law or breach of warranty claim?
Do I have to keep possession of the vehicle throughout the entirety of the litigation?
It is strongly advised that you keep the vehicle until the end of the case. Most state Lemon Laws require that you maintain possession of the vehicle (meaning the vehicle is not traded into a dealership or sold to another party) to qualify. Breach of Warranty does not require that you maintain possession of the vehicle, but a case is stronger when you keep the vehicle rather than trading it in or selling it.
