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.

The Lemon Law in Missouri holds manufacturers responsible for defective vehicles. Under the law, if a consumer reports a defect within one (1) year of purchasing the vehicle and the dealer fails to repair it after a “reasonable number of attempts,” then the consumer is entitled to a refund or a replacement vehicle.

Although the Missouri New Vehicles Warranty Law only applies to defects that arise within a year of ownership, the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act provides additional protections. This “federal Lemon Law” requires manufacturers to repair any defect which occurs during the warranty period. And if they fail to do so, consumers have up to four (4) years to file a claim.

The Lemon Law in Missouri awards consumers who have purchased defective vehicles with refunds or replacements. However, you can’t simply demand a new car at the first sign of a problem.

If your new vehicle has an issue, the first step is to notify the manufacturer and bring it in for repair. To qualify for compensation under the Missouri Lemon Law you must notify the manufacturer of the issue within a year of the purchase date. Defects that aren’t reported during the first year of ownership are still protected under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

Before your vehicle can be considered a lemon, you must provide the manufacturer with a “reasonable number of repair attempts.” Typically, that means four (4) repair attempts for the same defect. Alternatively, vehicles can qualify as lemons in Missouri if they remain out of service for repairs for a total of thirty (30) business days.

In some cases, vehicles can be classified as lemons after fewer than (4) four repair attempts. In fact, we’ve handled cases under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act where vehicles were deemed lemons after just one (1) repair attempt.

So as soon as you think you have a lemon, reach out to a Missouri Lemon Law attorney. Both state and federal laws require manufacturers to pay your legal fees if you win your case. And at Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center®, we only charge for our services if we secure your compensation. So, there is no reason to deal with your lemon without an attorney to advise you.

An attorney can also help by sending written notice to the manufacturer of the defect before one (1) final repair attempt, which is required before pursuing claims. Once the manufacturer receives this written notice, they’ll direct you to a repair facility. After you bring the car to the facility, they’ll have ten (10) days to repair the defect. And if the defect is still present after this attempt, you have a lemon.

At this point, you or your attorney must present your case to an arbitration board. The board will review the relevant documents (sales paperwork, repair records, receipts for incidental expenses, etc.) and issue a ruling. The ruling may award you with a full or partial refund or even a replacement vehicle. But if you aren’t satisfied with the decision, you can file a lawsuit.

Even if you need to file suit, with an experienced attorney in your corner it’s unlikely your case will make it to trial. In fact, fewer than 1% of our cases do. So if you even think you have a lemon, reach out to us today for a free case review to let us help you get the compensation you deserve.

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.
