The Indiana Lemon Law Definition

The Motor Vehicle Protection Act (Indiana’s Lemon Law) affords protection to consumers who’ve purchased or leased a defective vehicle in the state of Indiana. Dealers that fail to fix defects within 4 attempts or 30 days must offer consumers a choice between a refund or a replacement vehicle of comparable value.

If you’ve purchased a lemon, Krohn & Moss, Ltd.® Consumer Law Center makes it easy to collect what you’re owed. Keep reading to learn more about the Lemon Law in Indiana and how we can help. Or call us at (800) 875-3666 for a FREE case review.

What Does the Indiana Lemon Law Cover?

The Indiana Lemon Law is amongst the most consumer-friendly in the entire United States. To qualify for protection under the law, vehicles just need to meet three simple criteria:

  • The vehicle was purchased or leased in Indiana.
  • It weighs less than 10,000 pounds.
  • It was intended to be used primarily on public roads.

Defects covered by the Indiana Lemon Law must:

  • Impair the use, value, or safety of the vehicle.
  • be reported within 18 months or 18,000 miles of the original purchase date.
  • AND persist after the dealer makes four attempts to fix it OR spends 30 business days pursuing repair attempts.

Lemon Law in Indiana FAQ

From the date you first report the defect to the dealer, you have two years to file a lawsuit. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual or warranty might outline additional requirements.

Some makes require you to notify the manufacturer of the defect in writing before filing suit. And some manufacturers require you to engage in an informal dispute process before filing suit.

Rather than reading through the fine print of your warranty and manual, give us a call. Our lemon law lawyers in Indiana know the requirements for every make and model. As a result, we’ll make sure you don’t waste any more time than you already have to deal with your headache of a car.

The Lemon Law attorneys on our team have helped more than 50,000 people like you rid themselves of their lemons and collect the compensation they were owed. We can do the same for you for no out-of-pocket costs. We don’t collect a dime unless you do. And if we win your case, the vehicle manufacturer who made the lemon pays our fees, not you.

We also know how to settle cases quickly. Almost every one of our clients comes to us frustrated, and understandably so. They’ve already spent countless hours trying to fix a virtually new car that they spent their hard-earned money to purchase.

With this in mind, we lean on manufacturers hard to accept the return and promptly pay what they owe. By doing so, we’ve secured generous settlements for over 99% of our clients without going to trial. And in the rare event that we do go to trial, we are very successful and experienced trial attorneys.

In many cases, we can help even if your vehicle doesn’t qualify for protection under the Indiana Lemon Law. Other laws, like the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, allow us to hold manufacturers responsible for their faulty products.

We’ve spent more than 25 years litigating thousands of cases and combing law books to familiarize ourselves with every consumer protection statute and every loophole that manufacturers use to try escaping their liability. If you purchased a lemon, we will exhaust every legal measure to hold the car company responsible.

We founded our firm to help people like you. Text, email, or call us today at 800-875-3666 so we can help you.
