Read the Pennsylvania Lemon Law Statute
Kimmel and Silverman uses The Pennsylvania Lemon Law and various Federal warranty statutes to provide 100% cost-free legal help to distressed drivers statewide.
The Pennsylvania Lemon Law applies to new cars that suffer a nonconformity; a defect or condition, which substantially impairs the use, value or safety; that cannot be repaired after three attempts by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This nonconformity must first occur within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. The Pennsylvania Lemon Law also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year. The car should be purchased or leased in Pennsylvania, or registered for the first time in Pennsylvania to qualify.
Kimmel and Silverman was the only lemon law firm in the state to work with The Pennsylvania State House of Representatives' Consumer Affairs Committee, in an effort to expand the PA Lemon Law. The first expansion was to include leased cars, providing lemon law protection to 20% more of the state's drivers. To read about this important change, click here. In addition, in December of 2002, Kimmel and Silverman worked with the House to implement another important change involving used cars with lemon law histories. The new PA Lemon Law now protects used car consumers who unsuspectingly purchase lemon buy-backs. Read all about the new addition by clicking here.
It's important to note that even if your car falls outside of the limitations established by the Lemon Law, there are still Federal breach of warranty laws which apply. If your car has an original or extended manufacturer's warranty and has a problem that can't be fixed after three repair attempts, chances are we can help you.
The Lemon Law can be confusing and is open up to numerous interpretations if you don't understand how it works.
