Yes, consumers in Illinois may use the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act to provide them with relief for the purchase of any used car, truck, SUV or other consumer product. The federal Act supplements the protections of the Illinois Lemon Law to allow purchasers and lessees of any consumer product, whether new or used, to seek relief if the product turns out to be defective and cannot be repaired despite the consumer affording the manufacturer a reasonable opportunity to do so.

While the Illinois New Vehicle Buyer Protection Act, also known as the “Illinois Lemon Law,” provides that the automobile manufacturer must refund or replace a new vehicle that is subject to non-conformities four (4) times in the vehicle’s first year or 12,000 miles, or is out of service thirty (30) or more business days in the same period, Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center® has successfully represented thousands of Illinois consumers through their use of the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (also known as the “federal Lemon Law”) who otherwise would not qualify for relief under the “Illinois Lemon Law.” In contrast, the federal Act requires that manufacturers of all consumer products, whether new or used, must repair their products within a reasonable time or reasonable number of attempts throughout the duration of the warranty accompanying the consumer product.

Therefore, if you own or lease a new or used automobile that is subject to repair multiple times, whether during the vehicle’s first year or thereafter, the attorneys at Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center® can use federal law to help you to obtain relief.

The attorneys at Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center® have decades of combined experience handling cases under the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and/or the Illinois Lemon Law. We will help you to understand your rights under both state and federal law and we will walk you through the necessary steps to obtain the appropriate relief.
