Nevada Lemon Law
The Nevada Lemon Law provides legal protection to consumers who purchase new or used cars, truck, and motorcycles that exhibit defects and nonconformities. Specifically, the Nevada Lemon Law covers any new or used motor vehicle (as described above) that has experienced at least one nonconformity that substantially impaired the vehicle’s use and value.How Do I Know If My Vehicle Is a Lemon?
Automobile manufacturers and warrantors are required to repair the nonconformities in a consumer’s motor vehicle within a reasonable number of attempts. Under Nevada’s Lemon Law, a “reasonable number of attempts” means one (or both) of the following:
- The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership at least four times for the same nonconformity during the term of the manufacturer’s warranty or within the first year after the vehicle was purchased (whichever comes first), and the nonconformity still exists; OR
- The vehicle was out of service due to its repairs for at least thirty days during the term of the manufacturer’s warranty or within the first year after the vehicle was purchased or leased (whichever comes first).

If you have a Lemon vehicle in the state of Nevada, you are entitled to have the manufacturer buy it back it from you or replace it with a brand new one. As an alternative, you may be able to receive a “cash-and-keep” settlement, wherein the manufacturer will pay you cash compensation as a result of the diminished value of your vehicle due to its nonconformities.
Angela is a Nevada car buyer who sought our firm’s help because she was having steering/suspension problems with her 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Angela brought her car to an authorized Chrysler dealership on multiple occasions for repairs, and it was out of service for over 90 days as a result of those repairs for its nonconformities. Angela needed a Nevada attorney that handled Lemon Law cases, and agreed to retain our law firm to represent her in connection with her vehicle. In just a few months, we were able to convince Chrysler to repurchase Angela’s defective Jeep, and they also paid our attorneys’ fees on top of Angela’s recovery. We were able to successfully settle her case without even having to file a lawsuit against Chrysler.
Even if your vehicle does not fall under the parameters of the Lemon Law, you may still be entitled to receive money damages under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the federal lemon law that applies to any defective product that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. That law also requires the manufacturer to pay the consumer’s attorneys’ fees, so we don’t have to charge our clients for our services.Why Should I Choose the Weisberg Consumer Law Group to Be My Lemon Law Attorneys?
