: Although the lemon laws are largely state specific, the sunroof problem would have to substantially impair the vehicle (i.e. resale value or safety) to qualify as a lemon law claim. Many states require four unsuccessful visits or 30 days in the shop for the same problem to activate the lemon law. It is not clear from your post whether you have a transmission problem. If so, then you would have a better shot at a lemon law claim.
: As far as being too late to file an action, this is once again a state specific issue, the lemon law is usually availible as long as the vehicle is still under the original manufacturor's warranty.
: I hope this helps. I will be glad to assist further.
You see, I'm not sure myself whether I have a transmission problem or not. I have an automatic and have read similar posts on this board about when accelerating from a standstill, the car will hesitate/stutter slightly and then the engine will suddenly kick in. Came close to being nailed from the side when I pulled out into extremely heavy traffic. Could be transmission, could be throttle body, who knows? My BMW dealership techs surely don't know!
Anyway, Between the sunroof and the hesitation in accelerating......I might be able to do something about it. Thanks!
