Cajun Country residents: Have you found yourself paying for numerous failed repairs to fix a vehicle you haven’t even had for that long? If your vehicle is continuously stranded in the Crawfish Capital of the World, it may be time to look into Louisiana’s lemon laws.

To see if your vehicle is classified as a lemon, you must have had 4 unsuccessful repair attempts, or 30 days out of service all within shorter of 1 year or the warranty period.

 If you are pursuing a lemon claim, you must provide a written notice to the manufacturer or dealer of the car. From there, arbitration processes are put into place so that the right agreement can be reached for the consumer.

For more information, you can contact the Louisiana Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at (225) 326-6465.
