What Is the Lemon Law in Ohio?

The Lemon Law in Ohio protects consumers from purchasing defective motor vehicles. If you purchase a new vehicle with a defect or condition that substantially impairs its use, value, or safety, the law entitles you to a refund or a replacement vehicle. However, you must give the manufacturer an opportunity to resolve the issue first.

The defect(s), and at least the first repair attempt, must occur within the first year of ownership and before you’ve put 18,000 miles on the car. If the defect continues to exist after a reasonable number of repair attempts, the vehicle is a lemon and may be returned. The Ohio Lemon Law defines “a reasonable number of attempts” in a few different ways:

  • 1 attempt – for any defects likely to cause death or serious bodily injury
  • 3 attempts – for any single defect
  • 8 attempts – for any combination of defects
  • 30 days out of service – for any combination of defects

The law was designed with new, non-commercial motor vehicles in mind. So passenger cars, motorcycles, trucks, and certain recreational vehicles are covered. Mobile homes and manufactured homes are not covered.

Most state lemon laws cover vehicles with a defect or non-conformity that substantially impairs the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. Every situation is unique and a defect that you might not ordinarily think is substantial, might very well be depending on how it affects you.

For instance, even something that is seemingly as minor as the illumination of a light on your dashboard might signify a larger problem. Or, something like a brake squeak might be substantial if it affects your use and enjoyment of the vehicle. And the federal Lemon Law applies to all warrantied defects, regardless of their effect on the vehicle.

For a vehicle to be considered a lemon, it must meet certain requirements. While each state is different, there are some general things that hold true across the board. At the most basic level, the vehicle needs to have some type of defect or non-conformity. And under most state laws, the defect must be covered by a warranty and be reported to the manufacturer within a specific timeframe and mileage limit.

However, the defect alone does not classify your vehicle as a lemon. Usually, the manufacturer must try and fail to repair the defect multiple times before the vehicle earns that distinction.

If your vehicle qualifies as a lemon, the manufacturer will often be required to return the vehicle and issue a refund. This is known as a Lemon Law buyback. The refund typically amounts to the full purchase price, with all taxes, fees, and financing charges, minus a usage fee.

The applicable state Lemon Law should define the maximum manufacturers can withhold as a usage fee. Many state lemon laws calculate the maximum usage fee based on the purchase price of the vehicle and the mileage driven before the first repair attempt. But every state is different. Thus, contacting a knowledgeable and experienced Lemon Law attorney is the most effective way to protect your rights.
