Hawaii Lemon Law
Lemon Laws provide relief and recovery to consumers who purchased an automobile that fails to meet the expected standard of quality for a new vehicle. A manufacturer of an automobile has a duty to repair a defective vehicle ensuring it is in sound working condition. When, despite this duty, an automobile fails to live up to expectations and cannot be repaired despite repeated effort, the consumer may be eligible for recovery under the Lemon Law.
To qualify as a lemon in the State of Hawaii, your vehicle must:
1) undergo at least three repair attempts for the same defect within two years from the date of delivery of the vehicle or 24,000 miles; or
2) receive one repair attempt for a defect that may cause death or serious injury within two years from the date of delivery of the vehicle or 24,000 miles;
3) be out of service due to repairs for a total of 30 or more business days within two years of ownership or 24,000.
Should you feel your vehicle qualifies for a claim under the Hawaii Lemon Law, contact an attorney to help you determine your rights.
