For those living in Kentucky, dealing with a defective motor vehicle can affect all aspects of daily life. To deal with these problems, the state has its own lemon law found in Kentucky Revised Statutes 367.841 to 367.844. While these laws provide protection for consumers similar to other states, there are unique features that consumers need to understand. To use the Kentucky lemon law, vehicles must be covered by a manufacturer’s express limited warranty, have a maximum of 12,000 miles on the odometer and be less than 1 year old (12 months from the time the buyer first took possession of the vehicle). Also, the vehicle must have a defect or nonconformity that affects the use, value or safety of the car. Also, to invoke the lemon law in Kentucky, there must be at least 4 unsuccessful repair attempts at fixing the problem or the vehicle must be out of service for warranty repairs a minimum of 30 days. When the vehicle meets the above criteria, the buyer has two options. First, he can replace the lemon car with a comparable vehicle. Second, he can get his money back (a refund of the full purchase price, including finance charge, sales tax, license fees, registration fee, and all collateral charges). At the Law Offices of Howard D. Silver, you will find the experienced representation that you need to successfully navigate your claim. If your car is a lemon, contact Howard D.
