In the next section of this answer are a lot of responses about returning cars because you don't like the car, don't like the deal, whatever. The QUESTION, however, was about returning a lemon. Every state has a Lemon Law, which requires the dealer to take the car back if it can't be fixed in a "reasonable" number of attempts. Check http://www.lemonlawamerica.com for your state's lemon law. In North Carolina, for instance, the car officially becomes a lemon if it can't be fixed in four attempts, or if it's been in the shop for more than 20 days.
So the answer is, no after two attempts, yes after three (many states say three) or four attempts to fix it.Returning a Car to a DealerHere are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers:
Yes, a person can return a used car to the dealer without penalties. This is only if the return is followed by the rules set in the contract.
Cehck to see if it qualifies for the "Lemon Law"?
As long as you have a warranty, then yes you can return an unsafe used car to the dealer. However, without a warranty, it will be impossible.
You have three days, by law to return the car. It should state this in your contract.
yeah. beat him dwn. or take your case to a lawyer and get more $$$$ with sue
No, the 3-day "cooling off" period in which a purchaser may return merchandise/items without penalty does not apply to vehicles.
You can usually return a faulty car back to the dealer, but to be repaired. You cannot return a car unless the dealer refuses to have it repaired.
Once you sign the papers, it is your car. You cannot return it unless the dealer agrees to the return.
Yes, you can, if you're returing under a warranty. Warrnanties make you able to return the car whenever you want.
depends on your contract agreement and if it was under warranty. most likely you can return it if you talk to the dealer.
Possibly, depends on the dealer. I run a used car dealership, and the only way I would take a car return is if there is a major problem with it. Bad motor, transmission, etc. I wouldn't do it if you just simply changed your mind.
You can return a new car if the dealer made a mistake on the contract depending on the type of mistake. If the dealer place the wrong vehicle on the contract, you could return the vehicle.
