Arizona Lemon Law

in Arizona

Lemon laws vary between states, and Arizona is no different, the Arizona Lemon Law is found in Section 44-1261 to 44-1267 in the Arizona revised statutes. The statutes declare that if any newly bought car or automobile does not follow all of the applicable and expressed warranties, the make of the automobile, dealer, agent or issuer of the warranty must make the repairs required so that the vehicle is now conforming with the expressed warranties.

Some of the possible fixes to the Arizona Lemon Law breach are:

If the automobile manufacturer, agents, dealer or issuer does not conform the vehicle to the service warranty through either fixing defects or repairing the vehicle that substantially weaken the value or use of it, the dealer, manufacturer, agent or issuer must:

Accept the return of the vehicle from the consumer and give them a full refund of what they payed, this must include all charges less than a reasonable mileage allowance which is said in section 44-1261 to 44-1267 of the Arizona Lemon Law.

If someone violates the Arizona Lemon law, the manufacturer must give the consumer an entirely new automobile in replace of the old one. If the buyer seeks legal help in the process and succeed, the court will give the consumer modest costs and legal fees.

The above statement does not mean that automobile manufacturers, dealers, agents or issuers are always losing in Arizona Lemon Law claims. The automobile dealer, manufacturer, agent or issuer does have the option of filing a defense under the Arizona Lemon Law, citing many of the reasons which you will find below.

One of the many defenses that a manufacturer can take under the Arizona Lemon Law is that the problem with the vehicle does not entirely impair the vehicles market value, or ability.

A second defensive stand point would be a scenario where the non-conformity occurs out of neglect for the vehicle, non-authorized modifications and also abuse by the customer.

Under the Arizona Lemon Law, it is assumed that enough time is given to the manufacturer, agent or authorized dealer of an automobile to double check that it conforms to the warranties given if either:

The vehicle has been not running due to neglect for repair for a total of 30 days or more during an active period of the warranty duration or two subsequent years, or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.

It has been taken into account that this assumption does not apply to the auto-maker except when the auto-maker has been warned through writing by the customer or their representative for the stated defects and problems, and has been giving enough time to correctly address the problem. Otherwise, this person is liable to legal action under the Arizona Lemon Law.
