Lemon Law / Tennessee Lemon Law
Kimmel & Silverman uses the Lemon Law in Tennessee and various Federal Warranty Statutes to provide cost-free legal help to distressed TN drivers dealing with a defective vehicle – commonly referred to as a lemon.
The Lemon Law in TN applies to new cars, both purchased and leased, which suffer a non-conformity – 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 non-conformity must first occur within the first year of ownership or the express warranty period (whichever comes first).
The TN Lemon Law 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).
The Lemon Law in Tennessee covers vehicles used for personal, family, and household purposes. The Lemon Law in 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.
