Debunking the tops four myths about Iowa Lemon Law

by Andrew Richardson allenstewart

Legal cases are complicated, so it is expected that a person will have thousands of questions regarding it. However, when people seek the internet's help in gaining information, the chances are high that some information they read might be misleading or half true. And that is when myths or misconceptions take place. 

Similarly, we have come across a few of the myths on Lemon Law in Iowa that are absurd.

In this blog, we will try our best to help you understand the truth behind these misconceptions. 

Myth no. 1: My vehicle should have X number of repair attempts along with Y number of days in the shop for repair

It isn't necessary that your car must have certain numbers regarding repairs to be deemed a lemon. There is a chance that with even two repair attempts, your car can be considered a lemon. And sometimes, even without repair, your car can be deemed a lemon, such as a car caught on fire. 

The reasonable attempts and hours are used by the lawyers for arguments. 

Myth no. 2: I have surpassed the miles and waited too long to file the case

 The Statute of limitation (SOL) says that you have a few years (based on state) to file a claim from the date you got to know or should have known that your car is lemon. 

Apart from that, most carmakers offer a five-year power train warranty. So the possibility of your car being nine years old with 120,000 miles can still be competently deemed as a lemon. It is better that you meet the experts instead of making a decision.

Myth no. 3: I do not have repair documents, so I cannot file the lemon law case

We all know that repair orders and invoices are the key evidence in the lemon law. But, if you do not have them, then it does not mean that you cannot file a lemon law case. 

When it comes to repairs made under warranty, the dealership usually keeps those records. You can request the documents from them. 

Myth no. 4: My terrible experience with the car is enough to prove the car as a lemon

Legal cases do not work on what your experiences are. You must provide the carmaker with a benefit of the doubt. You must take your vehicle to them. In many cases, a car isn't deemed lemon unless the carmaker is offered reasonable attempts to repair it. 

Bottom line

Myths and misconceptions are just misleading information that you might have picked up on the internet or through someone you know. 

We hope we were able to clear some of your doubts about Iowa Lemon Law. But we are sure that you might still have doubts lingering in your brain, the best option is to hire an experienced attorney. He will make the lemon law case simple for you.
