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
  • Mo-peds
  • Motorcycles
  • 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.

Missouri’s Merchandising Practices Act takes a hard stance against fraud in relation to sales of any product, including vehicles. Under this law, knowingly selling a vehicle under false pretenses is a class E felony. And if the dealer was unaware of the defect, state and federal lemon laws still apply, as do federal breach of warranty laws.

You have a right to compensation whether or not the dealer knew about the defect. In most cases, you’ll be entitled to a full refund or a replacement vehicle, which we can help you collect.

YES. The Missouri Lemon Law itself does not cover used cars. However, the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act does. It requires warrantors of consumer products, i.e., car manufactures and their dealers, to comply with the terms of any warranties or service contracts that accompany the used car. If the car company fails to do so, namely by failing to repair the car, the used car owner may seek compensation due to the problems the owner experienced.

The law also holds the warrantor or manufacturer responsible for any attorneys’ fees and any other costs you accrue in pursuing a claim. These “fee-shifting” provisions allow our lemon law lawyers in Missouri to fight for your rights at no cost to you.

 

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.
