Lemon Law Process in Wisconsin

Posted by Nathan DeLadurantey | Jun 19, 2023

The Lemon Law is a state law that protects consumers who purchase new vehicles that turn out to be defective. The law allows consumers to return the vehicle to the manufacturer or dealer for a refund or replacement if the vehicle has a defect that cannot be repaired after a certain number of attempts.

To file a Lemon Law claim in Wisconsin, you must meet the following criteria:

  • The vehicle must be new.
  • The vehicle must be purchased from a Wisconsin dealer.
  • The vehicle must have a defect that substantially impairs its use, value, or safety.
  • The manufacturer or dealer must have had a reasonable opportunity to repair the defect, but the defect has not been repaired after a certain number of attempts.

The number of repair attempts required to qualify for a Lemon Law claim varies depending on the type of defect. If you believe that your vehicle is a lemon, you should contact the manufacturer or dealer to file a Lemon Law claim. The manufacturer or dealer may be able to repair the defect or replace the vehicle. If the manufacturer or dealer is unable or unwilling to repair or replace the vehicle, you may be able to file a lawsuit in court.

The Lemon Law process can be complicated, so it is important to speak with an attorney if you believe that your vehicle is a lemon. An attorney can help you understand your rights and can help you file a claim, if necessary.

Here are some tips for filing a Lemon Law claim in Wisconsin:

  • Keep good records. Keep all of the documentation related to your vehicle, including the sales contract, repair orders, and any correspondence with the manufacturer or dealer.
  • Be organized. The Lemon Law process can be complicated, so it is important to be organized and to keep track of all of the paperwork.
  • Be patient. The Lemon Law process can take time, so it is important to be patient and to be prepared to follow through.

By following these tips, you can increase your chances of success in filing a Lemon Law claim in Wisconsin.
