Informal Resolution or Going the Ways of Courts: Which is Better Way to Resolve a Lemon?

‘Lemons’ otherwise known as underperforming vehicles due to repeated repairs are considered as serious issues. Just imagine wasting your resources on an almost-worthless car since you rarely use it and due to its numerous visits to the repair shop. This is a common complaint in many parts of the country, and the good thing is that there is a law that covers this problem. The law is affectionately called the ‘Lemon Law’, and all states in the United States have its own version of this law.
