MAINE ATTORNEY GENERAL LEMON LAW ARBITRATION
IF YOU HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE
The Maine Lemon Law ( 10 M.R.S.A. §§1161 - 1169 ) provides free Attorney General arbitration for consumer buyers or lessees whose motor vehicle (including motorcycles and motorized RVs) is seriously defective. Under the Maine Lemon Law, you may have a right to a refund or a replacement of the vehicle if the following applies:
For this vehicle you should notify the Manufacturer or its authorized dealer of the defects and the right to make a final repair. Mail to:
[Name and address of Manufacturer]
The Attorney General's state-run arbitration is different from any manufacturer sponsored program to which you may also be entitled. Under the state Lemon Law program, you will receive a free hearing before a neutral state Arbitrator and a decision within 45 days of acceptance of your Lemon Law application. If your vehicle is declared a Lemon, the manufacturer must refund your purchase price or replace the vehicle.
You must apply for state-run arbitration within 3 years after delivery to the original consumer and within the term of the manufacturer's warranty.
