The provisions under Lemon Law TN New Car is clear about what constitutes a car as a lemon. Typically, when a person discovers a car giving problems shortly after its purchase, he will promptly intimate the manufacturer or dealer about it. This is because as per law, the manufacturer is entitled to know about the issue and get adequate opportunities to fix the defect. Only if he fails to do so after a ‘reasonable’ number of attempts, can a car be called as a lemon car.

Here the emphasis will be on what constitutes a reasonable number of attempts. Some states may say 3 attempts, while other may say 4 attempts are termed ‘reasonable’ every attempt needs to have a stipulation within it. Its invoices must be marked ‘Closed’ so that the attempt can be deemed as one single complete attempt made to rectify the fault in the lemon car.

What is the catch?

Dealers know that marking a service invoice as closed makes it eligible to be counted as a single attempt under Lemon Law New Car in TN. So, some of them try to wriggle out of this situation by keeping the service invoice status as ‘open’. They may justify this by saying that since the repair attempt couldn’t be done successfully, it is better to keep it open.

However, you need to be beware of this activity. You need to insist to keep the invoice ticket status as ‘closed’. These invoices will serve as valuable documentation for your lemon law case in court and hence you need to maintain vigilance on this point.
