What is a “LEMON?”

Over the weeks I was without a vehicle, I read a lot about legal descriptions of so-called “lemons” and I must say, it is amazing, how much you can find on the internet. There are lawyers specialized in settling claims, and a lot of them are not holding back with their experiences.

DEFINITION:
Depending in which state or province you live, you can call your car a lemon, once it was in the shop between 3 and 4 times for the same problem.

Beside this, “the greater the number and the greater the length the car was out of service, the more substantial the defect.”

DOES THIS APPLY?

Oh yes!.. In 2 cases the car was back 4 times – the last case was finished after 5 weeks on July 25th, 2002) – so I can say by law: “I got a lemon.”

This was my 8th. Mercedes-Benz. I was more than happy with the first 7 – why would I go with another one?
