Recently, the Philly Burbs posted a brief question and answer section addressing the fact that Philadelphia’s lemon law does not apply to used or preowned vehicle, regardless of the manufacturer’s certification status.
The article recommends that used or preowned car buyers should check the vehicle’s history by going to carfax.com before buying the vehicle. Also, the article suggests that a buyer should bring a friend who is knowledgeable about cars or a mechanic along to inspect the vehicle before purchasing.
In Texas, the lemon law generally does not apply to used cars. However, there may be limited exceptions. If you purchased a used vehicle that still has existing manufacturer’s warranty, then contact my office for a free over the phone consultation.
