Dealing With Your Dealer? Be Careful!

We just received a call this week on the 1-800 LEMON LAW hotline from a woman with a lemon of a 2010 Nissan Rogue.  She was back four times for fuel gauge problems in leas than a year!  She contacted Nissan on her own, and they did nothing.  So, rather than reach out to a lawyer, she called the dealership.

The dealership agreed that she deserved a new Nissan and just her luck, they had a red one and a white one on the lot.  She chose the red one, signed some paperwork (without reviewing it) and was on her way in a brand new car.  Case closed, right?

WRONG!!!  She has just found out that she traded her car in and that trade is going to cost her over $10,000.  She no longer has any of the invoices illustrating the fuel gauge problem, and she signed all the new paperwork, indicating she approved the deal.

Remember, when it comes to a lemon law claim, the dealership has no authority or obligation other than fixing your car under warranty.  If you think you have a lemon, contact a lemon law lawyer. The help is free and you have nothing to lose…except your lemon.
