If the vehicle you are purchasing is a used vehicle, you cannot institute a claim under the Ohio Lemon Law, but instead have to institute a claim under the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act which protects consumers with used cars who have repeated problems under an original or extended manufacturers warranty.

This response is based on the limited facts you have provided and is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. I cannot provide adequate advice to you without meeting with you in person. If you would like to schedule a free consultation, please feel free to contact me.
