This Law is only applicable if the vehicle was bought new. Under the statute, the manufacturer must replace the motor vehicle or refund the purchase price (less a reasonable allowance for use)."

    Based on my experience I would not hesitate to use the "lemon law", but you have to follow the guidelines.
    Not all states' laws cover motorcycles.

    Angry 2011 RT Warranty rear main seal failure too

    Mine went at 6000 miles or so. They replaced the rear main, counter balance and output seal too because they were "weeping". Been in numerous times for other warranty repairs since but not seals. Now at 13500. Confidence gone though. 13 months old, been towed in 3 times for different things.
