Lemon Laws are state guidelines that protect buyers of cars and other consumer goods from products that do not meet quality or performance standards, often called a "lemon." If you've recently purchased a defective car, motorcycle, truck, or SUV you may be entitled to compensation.


Consumers covered under Lemon Law are individuals who have:

  • Purchases or leases less than 10 new vehicles a year.
  • Entitlement to enforce the requirements of an express warranty pursuant to the terms of that warranty.

So your vehicle has been out of service 4 times for the same problem. Or it has been out of service for 30 cumulative days. It's a Lemon, right? You should be able to show the manufacturer your repair invoices and get your vehicle repurchased or replaced immediately. Case closed.



The Different Categories Of Lemon Law in Madison Heights

No Substantial Impairment

Probably the most common manufacturer tactic used to prevent you from recovering what you deserve is to argue that there is no substantial impairment. In other words, they might say the problem(s) with your vehicle are not serious enough for you to recover under the law. What problems ARE serious? For example, are squeaky brakes a substantial impairment? What if your vehicle is pulling to the left or right? What about oil leaks, water leaks, engine noise, transmission noise, a bad smell, vibration, engine warning light on, electrical problems? The Lemon Law says that a defect or condition must exist that substantially impairs the use or value of the new motor vehicle to the consumer and has been subject to a reasonable number of repairs. {(MCL 257.1403(5)(a)}. The Lemon Law also indicates that a defect or condition which prevents the new motor vehicle from conforming to the manufacturer's express warranty if not repaired would allow a consumer to recover damages. (MCL 257.1402).


Not The Same Problem

The Michigan Lemon Law requires that the same defect or condition be subject to the appropriate number of repairs, {(MCL 257.1403(5)(a)}. Manufacturers use this language to cloud the issues and argue that one transmission problem was not the same as the next or argue that the 2nd repair for engine noise was not the same as the 4th repair for engine noise, etc. This is often simply a legal trick to avoid liability. They will do anything to prove your vehicle was not subject to the required number of repair attempts. There are several ways to combat this manufacturer allegation and only the most seasoned and experienced Lemon Law attorney will have the background to counter it.


Business Purposes

The Lemon Law says that a consumer is "A person who purchases or leases a new motor vehicle for personal, family, or household use, {(MCL 257.1401(a)(I)}. Manufacturers will sometimes argue that you are not entitled to use the Lemon Law if:


You write off your vehicle for tax purposes or purchase your vehicle in the name of your business. There are several legal strategies to fight these allegations and still allow you to recover. Not every attorney knows how to defeat this argument. You need an experienced attorney who understands how to confront and counter the business purpose defense and get you the remedy you desire.

A debt collector may not contact anyone else about your debt, except to find out where you live and work except they may contact your lawyer, if you have one. Generally, the collector cannot disclose to anyone that you owe money.


A collector may not contact you if, within 30 days after you are first contacted, you send the collection agency a letter stating you do not owe money. However, a collector can renew collection activities if you are sent proof of the debt, such as a copy of a bill for the amount owed.


Many consumers in Detroit do not understand that there are laws to protect them against debt collectors and creditors. These laws are intended to protect consumers from collection agencies that violate the law and creditors who wrongfully blemish their credit reports.
