Blown engines....Lemon Laws?

Recommended Posts

Lemon laws will vary from state to state. IIRC, South Carolina requires that you be the original purchaser of the car and that it has to have been back to the shop for x number of times for the same repair. I'm not sure about NC. There are a few potentially viable causes of action but they will require someone who wants to litigate on the principle of the thing and is willing to shell out some money for experts and litigation costs. I'm sure that most of the data from Porsche is safely tucked away in Germany, not the U.S.

The lemon law in Georgia concerns itself more directly with "failure to address / correct problem" than with the problem occuring in the first place. A claimant must document that he has had his under warranty car serviced a certain number of times .... within a prescribed time frame .... for the same complaint .... without the problem being satisfactorily repaired.

Some posters I have seen describe their tribulations of multiple seal replacements for the dreaded RMS leak would qualify. Someone who was given a factory new engine in response to a blown engine .... would not. That would be considered as satisfactorily addressing the problem.
