Missouri Lemon Law

When purchasing a new vehicle, you are entitled to certain rights, known as the Lemon Law.  The Lemon Law is a state law that provides you, the consumer, with a remedy for the purchase of a new vehicle that fails to function in a manner that is fit for its purpose.  A dealership cannot take away this right to purchase a new vehicle free of defects.  After purchasing a new vehicle, it is expected to function properly and when it fails to live up to this expectation, even after repeated attempts at repair have been made, the car may qualify as a lemon under the Missouri Lemon Law. 

In Missourithe Lemon Law applies to defective automobiles and trucks and other vehicles and products including but not limited to motorcycles, RV's and boats.

To be considered a lemon in the State ofMissouri, a vehicle requires:

  • at least four repair attempts for the same defect within one year of the date of delivery of the vehicle; or
  • to be out of service for repairs for 30 or more consecutive working days.

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