Delaware Lemon Law

A new automobile is a lemon if it has defects that impact the use and value of your car.  If after purchasing a vehicle you feel it is not performing like a new car should, you may want to investigate into whether you have bought a “lemon”. The Lemon Law was created to allow a buyer a means to obtain a refund or replacement of your defective vehicle if it so qualifies under the law.  In Delaware the Lemon Law covers all passenger motor vehicles except for motor homes (other than the chassis) and motorcycles.


To qualify as a lemon in the State of Delaware, your vehicle must:


  • undergo four or more repair attempts for the same defect within the warranty period or one year from the date of delivery of the vehicle; or


  • be out of service due to repairs for a total of 30 or more business days within the warranty period or one year of ownership.


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