What is the dealer's responsibility to you?

You are excited about the prospect of getting a vehicle that is new to you. You are confident that under the protection of the Lemon Law in Virginia, you will be able to find a vehicle that is dependable and reliable that meets your requirements. Understanding what the dealer's responsibility is to you is important so you can make sure that you have accessibility to all of the protections provided by the state's Lemon Law. 

If you do not do your research and end up with a defective vehicle that has not been properly disclosed, you may be at a loss and left to try and figure out what needs to be done to get the vehicle to work properly so you can use it. According to Virginia Law, if the vehicle that you are purchasing was initially returned to any manufacturer or distributer on account of being defective, this information must be disclosed to you in written documents by your dealer. You can ask to see this information at any time and should have immediate accessibility to its contents. 

Once you have received word of the vehicle's potential problems, it is up to you whether or not you want to pursue the sale. What you should be aware of is that your dealer's responsibility is void after you have signed the sale agreement and taken on the role of purchaser.
