Manufacturer Sponsored Arbitration
Many manufacturers sponsor arbitration programs to hear and make decisions about consumer warranty problems. An owner with a defective vehicle must contact the manufacturer`s representative listed in the owner`s manual to try to solve the problem.
If the manufacturer sponsors an arbitration program, it must be used before a Lemon Law lawsuit can be filed in Pennsylvania.
Some states sponsor an arbitration program that can be used if a particular manufacturer has no program of its own, or if the buyer is not satisfied with the result of manufacturersponsored arbitration.
