Ohio Lemon Law

Green check mark icon Attorney Updated: 03/09/2020

Did You Purchase Or Lease A Lemon In Ohio?

In Ohio, a car is defined as a lemon if it has a problem (or problems) that reduces its value or makes it a possible hazard on the road. If you have a vehicle like this, it can be emotionally disturbing as well as a financial headache. Fortunately for Ohio drivers, there is a Lemon Law in the state that covers passenger cars, light trucks, or motorcycles if they are less than one-year-old and have fewer than 18,000 recorded miles on the odometer. The Ohio Lemon Law advises an owner with a problem vehicle to take it to an authorized dealership of the manufacturer, who must be given what is termed a “reasonable opportunity” to fix it. That means one or more of the following:

  • The car has been in the repair shop at least 30 days; or
  • At least three attempts to fix a problem have been unsuccessful; or
  • At least one attempt to fix a serious problem that could lead to injury was unsuccessful.

Federal Law

Our aim is to get you back on the road as quickly as possible, but this time in a safe vehicle. Don't be discouraged if your car troubles did not begin until after the one-year or 18,000-mile requirement as there is also a federal law that protects owners of vehicles that fall outside the Ohio Lemon Law guidelines. We have been successful in applying the federal statute to obtain monetary rewards for lemon car owners after a manufacturer has failed to resolve problems within a “reasonable number of attempts” or within a “reasonable amount of time”.
