Questions and confusion come with all things new. Same with the Philippine Lemon Law (Republic Act 10642, full text). Let’s tackle something basic. It’s not about the coverage or the claim procedure. Something more basic — what happens to brand new motor vehicles purchased BEFORE the effectivity of the Philippine Lemon Law? Or shall we reckon it from the issuance of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (the DTI is required to issue the IRR within 90 days from effectivity of the Philippine Lemon Law). [Update: the Philippine Lemon Law took effect on 7 August 2014; see also effectivity and coverage]
Let’s find time and tackle these topics in the days to come.
