Lemon law targeted by state legislator
CREATED Oct. 31, 2013
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A state representative wants to take a close look at the state's lemon law that applies to new cars that turn out to be defective.
Republican Rep. David Brumbaugh of Broken Arrow says he requested Thursday's interim study before the House Judiciary Committee after a constituent in his district came to him after buying three vehicles that qualified as a lemon.
Brumbaugh says the state's lemon law has some good language for determining when a vehicle qualifies as a lemon, but does little in terms of enforcement. He says if a deal can't be reached between a car dealer and a consumer, filing a lawsuit is the only option.
Among those scheduled to testify is a former legislator who helped write Oklahoma's lemon law.
