Default Lemon law?

I have the jist of what would be qualified but, Yea. Ok, here is the deal. My differential went on my 03 wrx. It is covered under my warranty but there are no diff's in the country I am told by my warranty manager. There is no quarentee when I will see the part and have my car fixed. What should I do.

Just because it's not warranty doens't qualify it for lemon status. Usually, some system has to fail three times within a specificed time limit to lemon a car.

Given that each state has its own unique lemon law(s), you may not, in fact, "have the jist [sic]" of your state's law(s) because if you did, you'd be able to tell us what situtations would qualify your car as a potential lemon and what your possible remedies would be.

Ever heard of Google?

At least you have a loaner/rental.

Does the differential on an 03 differ from and 02 or 04 WRX? I'd call around to some other dealers and ask about the supposed lack of diff's in the country and see that you are not getting BS'd.

I know you wouldn't be covered by the lemon law in CT for just one trip to the dealer or one problem and lack of parts. It usually stems from multiple problems or repeat visits and the problem persists.

I don't think you can call it a lemon. The car has to go in 3 times for warranty work, to fix the problem. If they still can't fix it then it could be a lemon. This is from Pa, where I'm from, but should be somewhat the same up there. http://www.mylemon.com/faq.htm Hope this helps
