Q: Is my car too old to file a lemon law claim? (DC)


To preface this question, the general answer to any legal question is “it depends”. One way to determine whether your vehicle qualifies for a lemon law claim is to figure out if the vehicle is still under warranty. If it is, then your vehicle is not too old to file a lemon law claim. However, if the vehicle is not still under warranty, that does not necessarily mean that the vehicle does not qualify for a lemon law claim. If your vehicle has had ongoing problems that you have taken it in for while it was still under warranty, and which have not yet been resolved, you may still have a valid lemon law claim. In that case, it is important you contact a lemon law attorney immediately so that an experienced attorney may guide you regarding next steps as the law is very nuanced and you want to make sure you receive the legal protection you are entitled to within a timely manner.
