Oklahoma Lemon Law
The Oklahoma Lemon Law protects consumers who purchase or lease cars, truck, motorcycles, RV’s and other motor vehicles that have defects and nonconformities. Specifically, the Oklahoma Lemon Law covers any new or used motor vehicle (as described above) that was bought or leased in Oklahoma and meets the following criteria:
- It weighs less than 10,000 pounds.
- It has experienced at least one nonconformity that substantially impairs the use and value of the vehicle.
Automobile manufacturers are required to repair the nonconformities in a consumer’s motor vehicle within a reasonable number of attempts. Under Oklahoma’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 or leased (whichever comes first), and the nonconformity still exists; OR
- The vehicle was of service as a result because of 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 Oklahoma, you are entitled to have the manufacturer repurchase it from you or replace it with a new one. As an alternative, there is the possibility of receiving a “cash-and-keep” settlement, which means that the manufacturer will pay you money damages as a result of the diminished value of your vehicle due to its nonconformities.
Jessica is a Oklahoma car buyer who sought our firm’s assistance because she was experiencing issues with a number of different components in her 2021 Jeep Cherokee. Jessica brought her car to an authorized Chrysler dealership on several separate occasions for repairs, and it was out of service for over 30 days due to those repairs for its nonconformities. Jessica was in need of an Oklahoma attorney that handled Lemon Law cases, and agreed to retain our law firm to represent her. In just a few months, we were able to procure a “cash-and-keep” settlement offer from Chrysler, and after some further negotiation, we obtained a reasonable offer to settle that Jessica ultimately agreed to accept. We were able to successfully settle her case without even having to file suit against Chrysler.
Even if your vehicle does not fall under the parameters of the Lemon Law, you may still be entitled to receive compensation 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?
