It’s so exciting to buy a new car! Nothing can beat the smell of a new car or the feeling when you’re pulling up in front of your friends or colleagues. But the other side of owning a car is paying repair bills, especially if your purchase is brand-new. If the issue wasn’t repaired the first time, it’s definitely a red flag for you. Whether it’s a new or used car, chances are you own a lemon. Before you sign the dotted line, make sure you’re aware of your rights and options as a buyer. Clagett Law know how to recognize a lemon. Here’s a quick guide for you.


Getting sick of the clicking sound you hear when you turn your key in the ignition? A faulty alternator might be the reason you continue to lose power when driving.

Out of Service

New cars are for showing off. You should feel 16 again as you roll through the neighborhood with your new set of wheels. If your car has spent 15 or more days at a dealer for repairs – you may have a lemon.

Slow Speed

Your new car should have no trouble beating beach cruisers in a short sprint. After all, most cruisers only have one speed and you have a stable of horses under your hood.


If you constantly have warning lights going off (check engine, brakers, low oil, etc.) and your dashboard is lit up like a Christmas tree – you need to get help.


If you’re having trouble stopping at red lights, stop signs, and outside of banks when you’re driving a getaway car, you might be driving a lemon.

After you’ve jumped through the hoops of trying to get your car fixed and/or you are getting nowhere with the manufacturer, it is time to hire a Kentucky Lemon Law attorney. Fortunately, there are federal and state laws that protect consumers who have purchased new and used cars with manufacturer’s warranty coverage. Remember – Clagett Law won’t charge you a dime as the manufacturer must pay your attorney fees. That is one of costs the manufacturer gets stuck with for selling you a lousy car. Contact us now!
