Ardmore, OK asked in Lemon Law and Consumer Law for Oklahoma

Q: What can I legally do about a lemon car?

I bought a 2017 Ford Edge Titanium from a car lot in Ardmore, Ok, on June 6, 2023. A week later, the check engine light came on and I had to take it to the shop. It broke down again a couple of times, with the engine needing to be replaced, leaving me without a vehicle for three months. The odometer reading was 116,051 when I bought it and is now at 118,911. I am 74 years old and rely on social security. What steps can I take to address these issues with the car?

A: The Lemon Law only applies to new motor vehicles during the warranty period or for one year from the date of the sale of the vehicle to its first end user.

Used cars with 116,051 are commonly sold as-is, although some dealers may offer after-market extended warranties to used car buyers.
