Q: Car repossessed. Possible lemon law issue.
My Wife had our car at a mechanic shop. The seller of the car tried to take the car from their property. The mechanic shop said stay off their property. The seller went back late at night and took the car. We stopped paying for the car because we found out that the car couldn’t pass inspection. The seller illegally passed its inspection. We have had to put a lot of money into fixing the car since getting it. The mechanic shop has been helping us to fix everything and they showed us why there was no way it passed inspection. The shop told us it’s a lemon. But after the mechanic shop made that known, the seller repossessed the car. So what should I do now to help my Wife get her car back?
Part of a Lemon Law claim is owning the car, which means continuing to pay for it. If you seek to file a Lemon Law claim, you'll need to catch up on your car payments before you can get it back.
You might want to contact an attorney who focuses on Lemon Law to help you sort this issue out.
Good luck with your case!
