What is a Used Car Lemon Law?

A used car can be considered a 'lemon' if it has substantial defects that have been unsuccessfully repaired by the manufacturer or dealer within a certain period of time or mileage. The purpose of these laws is to protect consumers from unfair practices and faulty vehicles.

Buying a used car comes with a few risks that aren't as major as those associated with purchasing a new vehicle. While the law mandates sellers to disclose any significant accidents the used vehicle has experienced and strictly prohibits mileage tampering, these unethical practices still happen. Therefore, it falls upon the buyers to thoroughly examine every facet of a used vehicle and accept it in its current state.

Only a few states have lemon laws for used cars:

How Does Used Car Lemon Law Protect Me?

Used car lemon laws vary from state to state in the United States, and they generally provide some level of protection to buyers of used vehicles. These laws typically address situations where a used car has significant defects that substantially impair its use, value, or safety. Here's how they may protect you:

  • Warranty Coverage: In some cases, if you purchase a used car that is still under its original manufacturer's warranty, you may be able to have defects repaired by the manufacturer or its authorized dealers at no cost to you.

  • Implied Warranties: Many states have laws that implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose on used cars sold by dealers. This means that the car should be fit for its intended use, and if it's not, the dealer may be required to repair it.

  • Statutory Lemon Laws: Some states have lemon laws that apply to used cars. These laws usually require the dealer to repair a significant defect within a certain number of days or repair attempts. If the issue isn't fixed, the law may require the dealer to provide a refund or replacement.

  • Used Car Inspection: Lemon laws often require dealers to provide a written warranty or a vehicle inspection report for certain used cars. This can give you some assurance about the car's condition.
