Understanding the Indianapolis Lemon Law

The Lemon Law in Indianapolis, also known as the Indiana Motor Vehicle Protection Act, protects Hoosiers who have purchased or leased a defective vehicle. Such a defective vehicle is known as a “lemon.” Keep reading to learn more about the specifics of this law and whether your vehicle qualifies for a claim. 

Does My Vehicle Qualify as a Lemon? 

Determining your vehicle’s eligibility under Indiana’s Lemon Law generally comes down to six provisions. Your vehicle must meet all six of these requirements to qualify as a lemon. 

  1. Vehicle Type
    You must have purchased or leased your vehicle in Indiana, and it must be designed for use primarily on public roads (i.e. cars and light trucks).
  2. Vehicle Size
    Your vehicle must weigh less than 10,000 lbs
  3. Defect
    Your vehicle must have a defect that impairs its use, value, or safety
  4. Warranty Coverage
    Your vehicle must be under the original manufacturer’s warranty at the time you first request repairs for the defect in question. 
  5. Repair Attempts
    You must give the dealer four chances to repair the vehicle. Alternatively, your vehicle must be out of service for a total of 30 business days due to repairs. 
  6. Timeline
    You must report the defect to the auto manufacturer within 18 months or 18,000 miles of the original purchase or lease date, whichever comes first.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim? 

You can file a claim up to two years after you first report your vehicle’s defect to the auto manufacturer. Keep in mind that your specific warranty may include additional requirements. 

For example, certain warranty agreements require you to inform the manufacturer in writing about the defect before you can file a lawsuit. Additionally, you may need to enter an informal arbitration process before filing a claim. 

Don’t let the fine print of your warranty agreement bog you down. Instead, call our team to schedule a free case review. Our lawyers are well-versed in the lemon law requirements for each vehicle make and model. We’re prepared to handle all the details, so you don’t have to!

What Compensation Could I Receive? 

Typically, if you have a lemon, the manufacturer must give you a refund or replacement vehicle. If we prevail, we’ll also request that the manufacturer pay your attorney’s fees. We understand the stress and financial strain a lemon can bring. For this reason, our lawyers fight tirelessly to connect you with the compensation you’re owed. 

Additional Protections 

Even if your vehicle does not meet the requirements for coverage under the Indiana Lemon Law, we can seek compensation via other routes for you. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal law, enables us to hold manufacturers accountable for their defective products in these situations. Simply reach out to our team to see if you have a case. 

Filing a Lemon Law Claim 

During your initial consultation, our lawyers will review your information to ensure your vehicle meets all the requirements of the Indiana Lemon Law. Then, we’ll get to work notifying the manufacturer about the defect. From here, we’re legally obligated to give the manufacturer one last chance to remedy the defect. And, if they’re unsuccessful, we’ll move forward with your claim. 

In Indiana, the claim process begins with arbitration. In fact, 99% of our cases settle in arbitration before ever reaching trial! This means that if we’re successful, there’s a high likelihood you’ll receive compensation without ever stepping foot in court. In rare cases that continue to trial our lawyers will work tirelessly to present strong evidence in your favor.
