They won't help you. It's a pain in the a-- process. You should get a lawyer if you really want go through with it. The individual problems don't really add up to Lemon Law relief. The tranny problems might be enough to get a favorable judgement. You have to show a persistent problem that they are unable to fix. Also, you must show how many times the car was in the shop and how many days. There are other requirements depending on where you live.

i have been in the car business(sales end anyway) for 7 years and I don't have a clue about what it takes to lemon law a car. Your best bet is to reaad up on the web like someone said or hope someone with first hand experience in your state with the same type of problems chimes in.

i'm in CA and having gone thru a lemon law case myself, i would say get a lemon law attorney's input. he'll tell you if you have a case or not. nissan/infiniti bought back my '03 infiniti g35c last year. the main thing that was wrong w/ my g35 was the window grease mark. my attorney filed a complaint about the "excessive number of attempts" to fix the problem. nissan asked for one more crack at fixing the problem. my lawyer and i agreed to nissan's request upon the condition that they buy back the car if the problem returns within 60 days. on like the 50 something day the freaking grease mark returns. contacted my lawyer and within 3 weeks, bye bye g35. nissan/infiniti was very responsive to my complaint. it never escalated to anything further than a complaint so no lawsuit was ever filed. good luck.

i'm not sure, but i think your car has to be under a certain mileage... i think the law varies from state to state... good luck

Actually I have!

Well heres the story I previously owned a 01 MR2 Spyder fun little car. The tranny went on it3 times and a bunch of other crap. The people at the dealer pretty much knew me by name. I had the car about a year and out of the year it was in the shop for about 3months. The service guy actually told me to apply for the lemon law. How it work is that you have to have a reoccuring error 3 times like your tranny for instance. Well fortunately my girlfriends sister is a paralegal she did all the paperwork for me and Toyota returned me all my mone like I never bought a car. Got back a nice chunk of change so I went and bought my Z. So definatly do it.

bobig....did they just give you a new one or buy back at KBB?
here in california, the law requires them to buy the car back less usage fee. they could offer you a replacement vehicle, but you don't have to agree to take it. they come up w/ the usage fee by taking the miles on your car when the problem was FIRST DOCUMENTED. i'm assuming you would have documented this problem prior to the tranny being replace, but i'm just using 11k miles for now.
anyhow, they would take 11k miles divided that by 120,000 miles (i don't know if this is a national figure or just in CA, but this is how long they say the avg. car's life is). so 11K miles divided by 120k miles is 9.2% (this is the usage % that u have used on the car). take this 9.2% and multiply by the MSRP of your car and that's the amount of money you are going to have to subtract from your refund. or in the event of a replacement vehicle, you will have to cough up this amount in order to get a replacement Z.
