Manufacturer's Duty to Replace
Lemon laws in Oklahoma are designed to protect the rights of consumers who find themselves victimized by unscrupulous auto manufacturers who attempt to pass off substandard vehicles as safe and reliable transportation.
The sad fact is that many modern vehicles do not exhibit the standards of quality most consumers need, so auto warranties exist to cover any potential problems that can arise in the hundreds of complicated systems found in every car. Unfortunately, these problems all too often cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time while the vehicle is under warranty, and fed up consumers return to the dealer for a refund.
Oklahoma lemon laws stipulate that if a reasonable number of repair attempts fail to resolve the problem within a year of the purchase the dealer or manufacturer must purchase the vehicle back from the customer or replace it with a new one. This part of the law is unknown to most consumers, and few dealers inform their customers of this right.
The complexities of consumer auto purchase law are difficult to understand and harder to enforce if an unscrupulous or dishonest dealer refuses to honor the law. Many people simply relent in their fight against vendors who violate the law, and quietly accept to live with a substandard automobile. Do not let them make you another silent victim.
