You need to send them notice that you are making a Lemon Law claim and requesting them to finally fix the problem, or buy back the car. I've been down this road before. If you've got more than 2 visits for the same problem, you should have ample evidence under your state's law. Any citizen can do this, you don't need a lawyer, but usually when formally provided the intent to pursue this, with the evidence/documentation, most dealerships will either really quickly fix the problem (as in making an actual effort) or buy it back. I've had a 100% success rate by sending certified/registered mail, so someone signs for it at where you are sending it. That means you have legally sent them notice. Although you may say to a service manager that you've been in there 3 times or some other person, it doesn't really matter until you put it in formal correspondence. In court, you'll be able to show that you notified them of the issue, by formal correspondence. That is usually pretty powerful. Although I've gone down this road with a car a few times, I've used it in many other walks of life (I'm not a lawyer, but I work with them). Any half-a$$ legal department will realize it's better to just fix the issue/buy back rather than try to fight it, and when you have a problem that meets the definition of the lemon law, you'll cream the ones in court that are too stupid to do the right thing.Any update on this one? I've had what I think is the same issue since day 1. The car feels like it's leaning out around 3k when not so aggressively accelerating on the highway and other places.
I have it in and out of the shop for months. They've replaced coils, plugs and even the transmission. It's still happening and it's very difficult for the tech to duplicate it and they usually just give me the car back and look at me like an idiot. I'd like nothing more than to narrow down what's going on.
