You read that contract before you signed it, right?

Ditto what Ponie said - - the contract you hopefully read before signing either stipulated you could return the car with no further payments due or it didn't.

Did you return it under the Lemon Law or you just took it back? You may own the car? If you don't pay you could get tagged with a self repo.

Don't Lemon Laws kick in after 'X' number of times for the same repair? There's no mention of repairs being done, s/he just returned it after two days.

I'm confused, did you just drive up to the dealership, get out of the car and walk away or did you talk to someone? I think we need more details to understand what happened when you returned the vehicle, that you would return from vacation and be surprised that you had a car payment due.

You are right Ponie. There have to be a certain number of attempts to fix to have the Lemon Law kick in. There are not enough details in this letter to get an idea of what really went on.

It's all in the paper work. What did you sign? As others have stated here, the Lemon Law will not apply to this case. There is no way 2 days can qualify.

With the limited information you have supplied I can only surmise you are about gain some valuable, and probably expensive, experience.

Dr.Who, while that is all good information the Lemon Law is irrelevant in this case.
Posted by tnchuck100 on 2008-05-14:
"Have you taken the vehicle to the dealership or an authorized service agent at least 3 times for the SAME substantial defect or condition or has the vehicle been out of service for at least 15 cumulative calendar days due to one or more substantial defect or conditions?"

This cannot be done in 2 days.

Good morning as well.

There could be something rather ho-hum involved too...like the loan cancellation papers and the payment due notice crossing in the mail. According the the OP, the time frame was about nine days from purchase to payment notice. The car was returned seven days before the payment notice. Provided the car was properly returned, there is no problem here.

You bought a car, it had a problem, you dropped it off and went and bought another car at another dealership. Congratulations, you just did a voluntary repo. Why don't people ever think!!!!

DD, that was my first thought also "voluntary repo".
