What Does the Wisconsin Lemon Law Cover?

The Wisconsin Lemon Law covers new cars, trucks, motorcycles, and RVs with a defect that the manufacturer fails to fix. The defect must substantially impair the use, value, or safety of the vehicle and occur within the first year of ownership and while the warranty is active.

Before a defect renders a car a lemon, you must give the manufacturer four chances to fix the problem. Alternatively, vehicles that are out of service for 30 days or more for any number of defects quality as lemons. These 30 days do not need to be consecutive and the car does not need to be in the shop to be considered out of service.

If your car qualifies as a lemon, the manufacturer must provide you with a replacement vehicle or a full refund and pay your attorneys’ fees. The refund must include the purchase price, sales taxes, financing charges, and any collateral costs, such as towing fees or rental cars. However, the manufacturer can deduct a usage fee from the refund, so long as it does not exceed:

You have three years from the date you take possession of the vehicle to file a claim under Wisconsin’s Lemon Law. But the sooner you act, the better. Once you suspect that your car may be a lemon, give us a call so we can review your case at no charge to you.

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.
