Lemon Law / Michigan Lemon Law
Kimmel & Silverman uses the Lemon Law in Michigan and various Federal Warranty Statutes, such as the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act, to provide 100% cost-free legal help to distressed MI drivers.
The Lemon Law in Michigan 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 four attempts by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This nonconformity must first occur within the first year of ownership, or the express warranty period, whichever comes first.
The Lemon Law in MI also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year or the express warranty period (whichever comes first).
For more information, we encourage you to review the Michigan Lemon Law Statute.
The MI Lemon Law covers vehicles used for personal, family, and household purposes. The Lemon Law in Michigan does not cover larger trucks, motorcycles, motor homes or off-road vehicles.
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.
