Knowing Your Rights: Iowa Lemon Law

Knowing Your Rights: Iowa Lemon Law

Did you recently buy a lemon in Iowa? More car dealerships are selling lemons according to a recent report from the American Automobile Association. When you have consistently brought back the car for repairs, and the car still breaks down or doesn’t work properly, then you likely have purchased a lemon. The Iowa Lemon Law protects you from these transactions, and in most cases, you can get a refund or replacement vehicle with proper documentation.

Write Down All Problems
If the car has multiple issues, you need to make sure that the dealership is aware of them on the first trip back for repairs. This means keeping a written log and description of all the problems. If you record a problem with the engine, you also want to make sure that you write about it the same way as before. The point is to show the state that your car experienced the same problems no matter how many times the dealership said that the issue was fixed.

Get Documentation from Iowa Dealership
Your service adviser should keep a detailed record of every issue that occurred with your vehicle as well as how the vehicle was fixed. If the notes are properly documented on the paperwork, then make sure you get the notes before you leave the dealership. This is crucial to proving that your car received multiple service “fixes” but did not get repaired.

Getting a Lemon Law Attorney Involved
When the dealership is not responding or hasn’t been able to fix the problem, you may need to get an attorney involved to go through arbitration fast.
