Manufacturer's Duty to Repair
Oklahoma lemon laws are very explicit regarding the duties and responsibilities of an auto manufacturer when a customer lodges a complaint about their products. Auto warranties provide customers a safety net in the event that a defect or condition made it past quality control, but many auto manufactures and car dealerships go to extreme lengths to avoid taking responsibility for their defective products.
In fact, the Oklahoma consumer protection laws outline in specific detail the actions a manufacturer of a defective vehicle must perform. The law stipulates that if a vehicle does not conform to all applicable express warranties and the consumer reports the nonconformity directly in writing, that the manufacturer, its agent or its authorized dealer shall make such repairs as are necessary to conform the vehicle to such express warranties.
Even though the law is extremely clear some manufacturers and dealers will do everything they can to ignore the complaints of their customers. If you bought a vehicle that turned out to be a lemon and your dealer or manufacturer refuses to honor your warranty, you need to consult a consumer attorney. You don’t have to become another silent victim of the greed of the automotive industry. Contact Atkins & Markoff today.
