Many new autos have significant problems.

There are certain rules and regulations that you must follow in order to file a Lemon Law claim in Alabama.
1. In Alabama, the Lemon Law claim must be made within the first year or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
2. The manufacturer must have an opportunity to repair the vehicle three (3) times, and one final time after notice is given.

The Alabama lemon law claim should describe the auto, state the problem and describe all previous attempts to correct the problem by identifying the person, firm or corporation making such an attempt, and when the attempt was made. Finally, the customer must follow the manufacturer’s internal dispute resolution procedure. Before beginning this process, it would be advisable to consult an Alabama lemon law attorney in order to fully comply with the statute.
