The Kentucky Lemon Law

For those living in Kentucky, dealing with a defective motor vehicle can affect all aspects of daily life. To deal with these problems, the Kentucky Legislature enacted the Kentucky Lemon Law to protect consumers who purchase new motor vehicles that are defective and do not perform according to what was promised in the vehicle's express warranty.

The Kentucky Lemon Law dictates that if the manufacturer fails to timely repair the vehicle, by and through its dealers, then the owner or lessee of the vehicle may seek a refund for their purchase or a replacement vehicle.

According to the Kentucky Lemon Law, a buyer or lessee of a motor vehicle must allow the manufacturer, by and through its dealers, four repair attempts or a total of 30 days to repair the vehicle within the vehicle's first 12 months or 12,000 miles. If your vehicle meets this standard, the vehicle is presumed under the law to be a lemon. However, even if your vehicle was not subject to repairs four times or 30 days in its first 12 months or 12,000 miles, it may still be a lemon as determined by federal law.

Pursuant to the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. § 2301, et. seq., a warrantor of a consumer product must comply with its obligations in its warranty, i.e., the repair of defects, throughout the duration of the warranty. Accordingly, if your car, truck, SUV or other consumer product has been subject to repairs outside the vehicle's first 12 months or 12,000 miles, you may still have a claim under the federal Lemon Law. To determine which laws you qualify for and what relief is best for you, it is essential to contact an experienced Lemon Law attorney. You can visit our Lemon Law website for more information.
