If you have unfortunately bought a lemon instead of a excellent working vehicle here is lemon law North Carolina to provide you with full protection.
Suppose your purchased vehicle is flawed. the manufacturer is given certain amount of time to repair it. If not repaired he has to replace it with one that is equivalent in value. You can even ask for an adequate refund from the vehicle dealer.
The law provides the customer four ways on how to get refunds:
The first is a complete refund on the retail cost of the vehicle. This also takes into account the service contracts, vehicle options, warranties, etc.
The second refund is for collateral charges. Lemon Law North Carolina states that this includes taxes and fees paid by the buyer, such as registration and licensing.
The buyer may also demand reimbursement of all financial charges that were paid on all dates following the reporting of the car’s faults to the manufacturer.
Finally,the law awards damages to the vehicle’s owner. The total damages are decreased by a certain amount depending on how much the car has been used by the owner.
For leased vehicles, Lemon Law North Carolina allows the lessee to receive the following reimbursements:
total amount of money already paid under the terms of the lease;
taxes and other fees paid by the lessee like registration and licensing
monetary consequential and incidental damages.
There are some car manufacturers that decline to do any of these things. In these situations, the case might go to court, and the law will require manufacturer to pay three times the amount of damages to the consumer. The law also obliges them to cover all attorney’s fees.
The rule applies to all vehicles purchased on October 1, 1987 or any later date. The vehicle could be anything from a motorcycle to a house trailer, as long as the weight of the vehicle is not more than 5 tons.
