Texas Lemon Law for New and Some Used Vehicles

If you are a resident in the state of Texas and you have problems getting repairs for a new vehicle and it was leased/purchased from a Texas dealer/lease company who is licensed to do business in the state, the Lemon Law might be able to help you get the vehicle replaced, repurchased, or repaired.  This is especially good for low income families who have purchased a car thru some assistance programs and do not have the money to spend on repairs – nor should they have to since the car is covered with new car warranty.  You should also check with your insurance agent to see if there is any way you can get a reduction in premiums for auto insurance in Texas especially if the car has been parked more then driven.

AutoInsuranceInTexasCars, motorcycles, trucks, ATVs and motor home are all covered under the law, as well as demo vehicles that develop any problems that are covered by a manufacture’s written warranty.  This is for those new vehicles that are in the shop under warranty being fixed more than you have been driving it – especially if it is the same problem occurring over, and over again.

Your vehicle just recently purchased is used might also be covered in the Lemon Law.  The Law might cover used vehicle if it is still covered under the manufacturer’s original warranty – not an extended service contract – or if said problem began while warranty protected and still exists, assistance with repair of the problem that is warranty-covered might help you in this situation.

In every case, if your car has been in repair more than you have been driving it check with your insurance company to see if there is any rebate that you might be eligible for with auto insurance in Texas.

The complaint route of the Lemon Law may be less stressful, expensive and complicated than first going to court.  A $35 filing fee is due for complaints about vehicles covered under this law.

When the complaint is received, it’s then reviewed by an Advisor for the Case to determine if this complaint meets the requirement for jurisdiction of law.  If it does, the Advisor will attempt to bring some resolution to this complaint thru “informal mediation” which might include a vehicle inspection.  Texas has had good luck with this new law as often complaints are resolved thru mediation within 30 to 60 days after filing.

If not resolved then the complaint will be scheduled for a hearing conducted by the State Office of Administrative Hearings or SOAH at hearing sites location thru out the state.  The consumer must at that time prove the Administrative Law Judge that their vehicle is indeed a lemon.  During this entire process the driver should make certain the laws concerning auto insurance in Texas is being met.
