Idaho Lemon Law

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is a federal law that covers all new vehicles.  It provides for recovery in the event a vehicle cannot be repaired within a reasonable number of attempts under the warranty.  However, each state has its own similar laws, commonly known as "Lemon Laws".  Each state may have different rules for what is considered a lemon.  Idaho has its own state lemon law.  The threshold for whether your vehicle is a lemon in the State of Idaho is:

 

  • the vehicle must undergo at least four repair attempts for the same defect within two years from the date of delivery or 24,000 miles; or

 

  • be out of service due to repairs for a total of 30 or more business days within two years from the date of delivery or 24,000 miles

 

Should you feel your vehicle qualifies for a claim under the Idaho Lemon Law, contact an attorney to help you determine your rights.
