Ever wonder what happens to lemon cars once they are bought back by the manufacturer? Last Sunday, The New York Times printed an interesting story which should shed some light on this mystery.
Many Pennsylvania consumers are unaware that, in 2002, K&S Attorney Craig Thor Kimmel worked with the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Consumer Affairs Committee to amend the Lemon Law to include tighter title provisions for used cars. Here’s the press release from our news room:
PA Lemon Law TAKES EFFECT TODAY
New Pennsylvania Lemon Law Will Require Dealers, Lessors, and Transferors To Disclose If Used Car Has Lemon History
Harrisburg, PA (December 2,2002) – A new change to the Pennsylvania Lemon Law to help used car consumers takes place today. House Bill 767, a measure to protect used car buyers from purchasing lemon buybacks without full disclosure, was signed by Governor Mark Schweiker in October and goes into effect today.
The change marks the second major amendment to the Pennsylvania Lemon Law Statute in the past year; the first being the expansion of the Law to include leased cars. Pennsylvania is the first state to take this type of action.
