The Rights You Have for Your Car Under the Lemon Law in Arkansas
You have certain rights as the buyer of a used car in Arkansas. You need to be aware of the Arkansas Lemon Law to ensure that you don’t get stuck with a lemon. These are some protections that the law provides to you:
24,000-Mile Quality Period
The Arkansas Lemon Law protects you for the first 24,000 miles you drive. You should not have any major issues with the engine, transmission, or any major components in that time period. You have the right to find a resolution if you do.
Repairs for the Issue
The Lemon Law states that the dealership that sold you the vehicle must try to rectify the situation if you experience problems within the quality period. Therefore, they must allow you to bring your vehicle in so that they can get your engine or transmission fixed. If the repairs don’t work, you can move on to the next step.
Replacement if not Repairable
You have the right to request another vehicle if the dealership cannot fix your vehicle’s problems. They can provide you with the same type of vehicle or a similar car. You have the right to contact an attorney who handles Lemon Law issues if the dealership refuses to assist you or they have a problem repairing the vehicle. A Lemon Law attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve in such an event.
