Buying a vehicle is
a large purchase for many individuals. If you have put money into a
car and later found out that it was a Lemon, you likely felt
frustrated. You likely spent a lot of time at the dealership trying
to have the issue fixed. If the problem wasn’t fixed or took an
unreasonable amount of time to fix, you may be due compensation from
the automaker or dealer.
Before filing a claim, there are a couple of things that you will want to do. First, you need to get familiar with local South Carolina Lemon Laws. Lemon laws vary by state. Do your research and talk to a lawyer.
The next thing that
you should do is collect paperwork. You want to be sure that you have
copies of all service records and receipts related to your vehicle.
This information is going to help you when you file a claim or when
you are in court and compensation is being determined.
In order to file a
claim that proves to be successful, it will need to be proven that
your vehicle had a substantial defect. It also needs to be proven
that it took an unreasonable amount of time for the issue to be
addressed. What is considered a substantial defect, or an
unreasonable amount of time will be determined by local South
Carolina Lemon Laws and details related to each case.
