The Wisconsin Lemon Law does not cover used vehicles. The Lemon Law only applies to new vehicles that are purchased or leased from a Wisconsin dealer. If you purchase a used vehicle from a Wisconsin dealer and it turns out to be a lemon, you may are not without options. In fact, the laws in Wisconsin give special protection for people buying from a Wisconsin used vehicle dealer.
In cases involving defective used vehicle sales in Wisconsin, the documents provided at the sale are crucial. Make sure you save all the purchase documents and carefully document all the post-sale repairs and diagnosis you receive.
If you believe that you have purchased a lemon, you should contact an attorney to discuss your options. An attorney can help you understand your rights and help you file a claim, if necessary.
