Lemon Law in Wisconsin
A new bought or leased vehicle is a "lemon" if it has one or more serious defects that seriously affect the vehicle's value or use while still under warranty. If your vehicle is deemed a "lemon," the manufacturer is left with the choice to replace your vehicle free of charge or refund your money.
Is My New Vehicle a "Lemon?"
Your new vehicle is a lemon if:
- You bought or leased a new vehicle AND
- The vehicle is a car, truck, motorcycle, motor home or wheelchair AND
- The vehicle developed a defect or defects during its first year and before the warranty expired AND
- The defect seriously harms the vehicle's use, value or safety AND
- The dealer either failed to fix the defect within four tries OR the vehicle was out of service for 30 days or more due to the defects during the vehicle's first year and before the warranty expired.
What Should I Do if My Vehicle Is a "Lemon?"
If your vehicle is a lemon, you should:
- Get a repair report for every repair visit.
- Keep all purchase contracts, warranties and repair orders.
- Talk to an attorney. A court may need to decide whether your car is a lemon and what settlement you deserve.
