The Minnesota lemon law provides ample protection for consumers who have purchased or leased a defective vehicle that qualifies under the state’s lemon law. Consumers may also obtain relief if they have purchased or leased a defective vehicle under the federal lemon law, which is known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act or other state laws that provide lemon law type assistance. Therefore, even if the repair history on your vehicle does not strictly meet one of the requirements of the Minnesota lemon law, you should contact our Minnesota lemon law attorney to discuss whether it may satisfy the federal lemon law or another state law. State and federal lemon laws apply to cars, pickup trucks, and vans.
The Minnesota lemon law states that a consumer may be entitled to a refund or replacement of a vehicle if:
(1) The vehicle was subject to four or more repair attempts for the same defect or
(2) The vehicle was subject to one unsuccessful repair attempt for a complete failure of the braking or steering system which is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury or
(3) The vehicle has been out of service for 30 or cumulative business days.
The Minnesota lemon law also requires that in order to satisfy requirements (1) through (3) above the initial repair must occur within the warranty period or 2 years from the date of purchase, whichever occurs first. However, in the case of (1), the lemon law provides that the repair attempts may extend into the end of the third year. The Minnesota lemon law also requires the defects complained of substantially impair the use or value of the vehicle. Finally, there is a notice provision under the Minnesota lemon law, which requires the consumer send written notice to the manufacturer or authorized dealer, notifying them that the vehicle is a lemon.
If you believe that your vehicle qualifies under the lemon law, please contact our Minnesota lemon law attorney. Also, as stated above, your claim may satisfy the federal lemon law or other state related law that would provide lemon law type relief. Our Minnesota lemon law attorney will evaluate your potential claims for free and will seek attorney fees and costs from the manufacturer if you have a claim.
