Nebraska Lemon Law

What Is the Nebraska Lemon Law?

The Nebraska Lemon Law provides legal protection to consumers who buy or lease a new motor vehicle and have experienced defects with their vehicle. Moreover, the Nebraska Lemon Law statute covers any motor vehicle that has exhibited at least one defect or nonconformity that substantially impaired the use and market value of the vehicle.

How Do I Know if My Vehicle is a Lemon?

Nebraska law requires motor vehicle manufacturers and warrantors to repair the nonconformities in a vehicle within a reasonable number of repair attempts. In Nebraska, a “reasonable number of attempts” means one of the following:

  • The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership at least four times for the same nonconformity within the manufacturer’s warranty period or the first year after the vehicle’s purchase, whichever comes first, and the nonconformity still exists; OR
  • The vehicle was out of service due to its nonconformities and warranty repairs for at least forty days within the manufacturer’s warranty period or the first year after the vehicle’s purchase, whichever comes first.

Our attorneys have represented Nebraska vehicle purchasers for many years. If you are not sure whether your vehicle qualifies as a lemon, our Nebraska Lemon Law attorneys can assist you and answer any questions that you might have.

What Will the Manufacturer Do for Me if My Vehicle is a Lemon Vehicle?

If your vehicle is considered a lemon under Nebraska law, you are entitled to have the manufacturer buy it back from you or replace it with a brand-new comparable vehicle. Alternatively, there is also the possibility of recovering a “cash-and-keep” settlement, wherein the manufacturer pays you cash compensation based on the diminished value of your vehicle as a result of its nonconformities and warranty repairs.

Tim is a Nebraska car buyer who sought our firm’s help because he was having suspension problems with his 2022 Ford Bronco. Tim brought his vehicle to an authorized Ford dealer for repairs, and it was out of service for approximately ninety days as a result of those repairs. Tim sought the assistance of a Nebraska attorney who handles Lemon Law cases, and ultimately agreed to retain our law firm to represent him. In just a few months, we began negotiating with Ford’s attorneys on Tim’s behalf, and were able to procure a reasonable cash-and-keep settlement for him, and Ford also paid our attorneys’ fees. We were able to successfully resolve Tim’s case without even having to file suit against Ford.

Even if your vehicle does not technically fall under the requirements of the state Lemon Law, you might still be able to recover cash compensation under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal lemon law that applies to any defective product that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. That law also requires the warrantor to pay the consumer’s attorneys’ fees, so we don’t have to charge our clients for our services.
