The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced plans for automobile and motorcycle manufacturers to create a website called SaferCar.gov to help consumers investigate safety recalls.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Some of the most notable automobile manufacturer and popular brands that consumers purchase and drive daily have recently issued safety defect and noncompliance notices in the last few months. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall notices issues include, seat belt retractors, fuel filter heaters, braking assist feature, power transfer failure, windshield wiper failure, front axle shaft issues, engine piston problems and steering column concerns among many other safety issues. Lemon Law Experts, Shainfeld & Anvar, recently released advice on how to learn about your rights as a motor vehicle consumer and about lemon law protections that can save consumers time and stress.
1) Know the facts - NHTSA has announced plans that will require automobile and motorcycle manufacturers to create a website called SaferCar.gov to help consumers investigate safety recalls related to their vehicles. This tool will help keep consumers informed of their purchasing power to buy or lease a motor vehicle that they feel satisfied with, without any safety defects or vehicle impairments.
2) Beware of severe defects - Serious defects can significantly impair the performance, value and/or safety of a motor vehicle. If a consumer owns or leases a motor vehicle with severe defects or that needs multiple repairs for the same issue, it is possible that a consumer is driving a lemon and may be entitled to compensation per the state and federal lemon laws.
3) Keep all the repair records - Lemon laws are not specific to which defects are considered serious. To qualify for lemon law protection, consumers need to demonstrate how the performance, safety and/or value of the vehicle have been substantially impaired by the defect(s). More importantly, Lemon Law experts recommend keeping complete and accurate documents, receipts and records of all repairs and contacts with the manufacturer’s authorized servicing dealerships. If after a reasonable number of repair attempts, the repairs do not repair the motor vehicle, then the chances of having a lemon increases significantly.
