Wisconsin Lemon Law for Used Vehiclse

Posted by Nathan DeLadurantey | Jun 02, 2023

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. The laws in Wisconsin give special protection for people buying from a Wisconsin used vehicle dealer.

However, if you purchase a used vehicle from a private party, you will not be able to file a complaint with the Wisconsin Department of Consumer Protection, nor will the dealership laws apply. You will need to take your case to court.

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.

Attorney Nathan DeLadurantey offers free consultations to explain your legal rights in Wisconsin. Free consultations can be scheduled online.
