Oklahoma Consumers/ Problems Covered
Oklahoma lemon law covers any condition or defect that prevents or impairs a consumer from using a motor vehicle. The umbrella term for a failure to honor manufacturing or warranty claimed standards for safety, reliability, or quality is called nonconformity.
Nonconformity is one of the most commonly encountered types of consumer problem. Even though automobiles are complicated machines they must meet the standards claimed by the manufacturer or dealer. Some car manufacturers go to great lengths to ignore and avoid unhappy customers, and a few dealerships are notorious for their apathy towards complaints.
Unfortunately, there are also a number of loopholes in the lemon law that auto manufacturers attempt to use against their clients. For example, a manufacturer can claim a certain defect does not restrict the use of or decrease the value of a motor vehicle, or that the nonconforming issue is due to the abuse, neglect, or modification by the consumer. Many consumers misunderstand their rights and let unscrupulous auto manufacturers take advantage of them.
A consumer who purchases a vehicle under warranty should alert the dealer or manufacturer of any problem so that it can be addressed quickly and easily, and if the dealer refuses or cannot fix the nonconforming issue it is important to consult an experienced lemon law attorney from Atkins & Markoff immediately. Don’t let pushy auto salesman intimidate you and take advantage of your trust and good faith by turning your new car dream into a nightmare.
