Family ponders legal action over defective vehicle

The Pennsylvania Automobile Lemon Law provides relief for consumers when defects that impair the use, performance or safety of new vehicles arise during the first year or 12,000 miles of ownership.

However, they can still pursue civil remedies by filing lawsuits against vehicle manufacturers or repair facilities.

The man was originally being investigated for fraud by the Brown County Sheriff's Office, but U.S. attorneys became involved when the scope of his activities became clear.
