Pennsylvania Lemon Law
If you are having repeated car problems and can’t seem to keep your car out of the repair shop, the Pennsylvania Lemon Law could be your saving grace. Consumers in Pennsylvania who own vehicles that have repeated warranty repairs might be able to seek relief under the Pennsylvania lemon law. While motorcycles, motor homes, and off-road vehicles are not covered under the law, they may be covered under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, also known as the “federal lemon law.” Our Pennsylvania Lemon Law attorney will assess the facts of your situation to determine which lemon law applies and what type of relief you could expect to receive.
While lemon law specifics can vary from state to state, the Pennsylvania law applies to most new cars purchased / leased either in or out of the state, and registered in Pennsylvania. Under the law, the car must have a substantial defect that decreases the car’s resale value, makes the car unsafe to drive, or impacts the normal functions of the vehicle. If any of these problems is happening to your car, the manufacturer must fix your car’s problems at no cost to you so long as any of the following provisions are met:
- Within the first 12 months after you purchase the vehicle.
- Before you reach 12,000 miles
- While the express warranty is still valid
If your car’s problems have not been fixed after a reasonable number of attempts to repair (generally that number is 3), or if your vehicle is out of service for a total of 30 days or more, you may be eligible to file a claim under the Pennsylvania Lemon Law.
