Kansas Lemon Law

What is the Kansas Lemon Law?

The Kansas Lemon Law provides legal protection for consumers that buy defective cars, motorcycles and trucks. Specifically, the Kansas Lemon Law covers any new motor vehicle that meets the following qualifications:

  • It is sold or leased in the state of Kansas.
  • It is registered for a gross weight of 12,000 pounds or less.
  • It has at least one defect or nonconformity that has substantially impaired its use and value.
How do I Know if My Vehicle is a Lemon?

Manufacturers of cars, motorcycles and trucks must repair any nonconformity in a consumer’s new motor vehicle within a reasonable number of repair attempts. Under the Kansas Lemon Law, a “reasonable number of attempts” means either one (or both) of the following:

  • The new motor vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership at least four times for the same nonconformity within the first year after its purchase, or before the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty (whichever comes first), and that nonconformity still exists; OR
  • The vehicle was out of service as a result of its repairs and nonconformities for thirty or more calendar days within the first year after its purchase, or before the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty (whichever comes first); OR
  • The new motor vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership at least ten times for the same nonconformity.

WhaT Will the Manufacturer do for Me If My Vehicle is a Lemon Vehicle?

If you have a lemon vehicle that you bought in Kansas, you are entitled to have the manufacturer repurchase the vehicle or replace it with a new one. On the other hand, you might also be entitled to receive a “cash-and-keep” settlement, wherein you would receive cash compensation due to the diminished value of your vehicle as a result of its nonconformities and repairs.

Alyssa is a Kansas consumer who sought our assistance because she was experiencing numerous issues with her used Buick Encore. Alyssa took her Encore to an authorized Buick dealer on multiple occasions, and its entire transmission had to be replaced. Alyssa was in need of a Kansas consumer attorney that focused on Lemon Law cases, and ultimately agreed to have our firm represent her. Throughout the course of her case, we tried to negotiate a settlement directly with General Motors, and after just a few months, we were able to procure a fair and reasonable settlement for her, and General Motors also paid our attorneys’ fees.

Even if your vehicle does not technically fall under the provisions of the Lemon Law, you might still be entitled to receive monetary compensation under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the federal lemon law that applies to any defective product that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. This law also requires the manufacturer to pay your attorneys’ fees, so we do not have to charge our clients for our services.
