I don't know of any state's lemon law or other countries for that matter that consider one issue and no repair attempts to be a lemon... It is usually repeated attempts (and failures) to fix the same problem.

its also based on TIME in the shop vs. time out of the shop.

Re: 2012 Terrain 2.4 oil leak

Since it has not been to the shop yet, then nothing fits the lemon law.

He might try to get the dealer to take it back, being so new..thats what I would do.

No, Not lemon law yet..most cases its 3 or 4 repairs for the same issue and/or 30 or more days in the shop in a certain time period...

Re: 2012 Terrain 2.4 oil leak

Talked to the service advisor today...the leak is between the engine and trans so the tranny has to come out..Wont know until the 27th what was leaking...oil plug? porous casting? and who knows when I will get it back...

I will reserve my reactions till I see how they handle it..gonna give them a chance to make it right. worst time of year...everyone of importance has taken holidays... I Wont be happy if I end up having to make a payment before I even drive it....

I would tell the dealer to put you in another car!..This isnt a good start..sorry for the issues your having on a new car.
