What Is the Lemon Law in Kansas?
The Kansas Motor Vehicle Warranties Law, also known as the Kansas Lemon Law, forces vehicle manufacturers to honor the warranties of the vehicles they sell and lease. If they fail to do so, the law enables consumers to return their defective vehicle for a refund or replacement vehicle.
For a vehicle to qualify for protection under the Kansas Lemon Law, it must meet two simple requirements:
- It was purchased or leased within the state of Kansas
- It weighs 12,000 lbs or less
The vehicle also needs to have a defect that substantially impairs its use or value. And such defects must not be the result of abuse, neglect, or unauthorized modifications or alternations. Finally, the defect needs to persist after providing the manufacturer with a reasonable number of attempts to repair it.
