Illinois Lemon Law Can Protect You

If you have purchased a vehicle that is not operating right, the Illinois Lemon Law can help you to get out from the loan and get a new vehicle, if you play your cards right. Consumer protection laws like the Illinois Lemon Law are in place to ensure that consumers are protected from corporate entities but there is also a responsibility of the consumer in play as well. In other words, you cannot just say this vehicle does not work and I want my money back. You must take the necessary steps to allow the dealer to repair the problem and you must proactively seek recourse under the lemon law.

What you Need to Know

The laws in Illinois are very specific about what type of vehicle can seek relief under the lemon law:

   * New vehicles
   * Unmodified new vehicles
   * Light trucks under 8,000 pounds and vans
   * Vehicles that are one year old or less and that have been purchased in Illinois

Vehicle protection is limited to 12,000 miles or 1 year whichever comes first, so that means you must act quickly. There are other caveats as well before you can use these powerful laws to force a manufacturer/dealer to make good on the sale. Getting protection relies heavily on building the right case.
