Lemon Law: I Bought 2008 Used Mini Cooper S, Can I Get Refund?

Hi, I bought a 2008 used Mini Cooper S on May 05, 2013.
It was about 86000 mi when I bought it and now is about 87000 mi.
I heard about Lemon Law but I don’t really know much about it.
I have audio problem in my audio system, and cracks on front windshield.
They gave me a discount for windshield but there was no problem in audio.
They told me there was little problem in sound system and they fixed it.
It seems like the problem I have now is different with previous problem they fixed.
I already registered my car and got the license plate.
I am going to call the dealer and ask to fix all the problem for free, but if they charge me, I just want to refund.
Is it possible to get refund? It’s been almost 3 weeks.
If it’s possible to get full refund, do I have to register and pay for my car again if I get another one?
If it’s not possible to get refund, can I ask them for warranty at least?
They are Hyundai dealership and they told me they can’t give me a warranty because it’s not their product.
Thank you.

    I was told Lemon law only applied to brand new vehicles, but I’m not sure.

    Lemon laws cover new vehicles only.
    The problems you mentioned when purchasing the vehicle were addressed to your satisfaction, and would absolve the dealer of any liability for them. By your own admission, they fixed those problems, and the issues you’re having now are new, therefore the dealer is not responsible for them. If the dealer has no limited warranty coverage (some dealers do 3 months, 3000 miles, for instance), then you are responsible for all repairs.
    After three weeks, there is no “refund” for the car, as the dealer no longer owns it. The bank who assumed the loan holds the title for the car. It usually takes about 3-5 business days for the bank to fund the purchase for the vehicle. After that, the dealer is completely out of the loop.
    There is a difference between a warranty, and an extended service contract. A warranty is implied coverage from the manufacturer, usually for specific components, for a limited period of time. A service contract is used to cover a used car, after the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty. Again, this is for specific components, for a specified period of time. If you can’t purchase a service contract through the dealership, you should be able to find one online for a reasonable price. You may want to contact the lien holder for your car, and see who they recommend (they encourage a service contract, because it covers their car until such time as you pay it off…
    I know it’s not what you wanted to hear, but I do hope this information helps…
