What Does the Missouri Lemon Law Cover?
The Missouri New Vehicles Warranty Law (Missouri’s Lemon Law) entitles consumers who’ve purchased a lemon to a full refund or a replacement vehicle. The law defines a lemon as a vehicle with a defect that substantially impairs its use, market value, or safety. Defects resulting from abuse, neglect, or unauthorized modifications are not protected.
For your vehicle to qualify as a lemon, you must also provide the manufacturer with a reasonable number of attempts to fix the defect. In Missouri, manufacturers get four chances to repair the vehicle. Alternatively, if a defect or defects put your vehicle out of service for more than 30 business days, it qualifies as a lemon.
The law applies to all new motor vehicles except:
- Vehicles sold “as is”
- Commercial vehicles
- Off-road vehicles
- Some components of RVs
Under the Missouri Lemon Law, used cars are not covered. But you still have rights if you purchase a used car that’s a lemon. Check the FAQ section below for more information about Missouri’s Lemon Law protections for used cars.
The Missouri Lemon Law in Action
Before your vehicle can qualify as a lemon, the Missouri Lemon Law requires you to submit written notice to the manufacturer, which we can do on your behalf. The manufacturer will then direct you to an accessible repair facility where they will have one last chance to fix the problem. If they fail to do so within 10 calendar days, arbitration is the next step.
Most manufacturers have informal settlement dispute procedures that you must go through before filing a Lemon Law claim with the courts. These procedures can be complex if you’re unfamiliar with them. But an experienced lemon law attorney can help you move through this process efficiently. The arbitration board will review your claim and typically offer a settlement.
Only you can decide whether or not to accept the terms of the settlement. We’ll give you our honest, professional opinion about the offer, but the choice is yours to make. If the arbitration board fails to offer a settlement, or you’re unhappy with the offer, we’ll file a legal claim with the court to seek the refund or replacement vehicle you deserve.
Missouri Lemon Law Deadlines
Under the Missouri Lemon Law, you need to report the defective vehicle within one year of the original delivery date in most cases. And you have eighteen months from the original delivery date to file a Lemon Law claim. Under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, also known as the federal Lemon Law, you typically have four years to file a claim. Missing these deadlines could cost you your claim. But if you retain our services, we’ll be sure to file all of the necessary paperwork on time. The important thing is to come to us as soon as possible once you suspect that your car may be a lemon.
