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.
