Utah Lemon Law

What Is the Utah Lemon Law?

The Lemon Law statute in Utah covers consumers that purchase or lease a brand new car, truck, motorcycle or certain recreational vehicles (RV’s”), and have encountered defects or nonconformities with those vehicles. Specifically, the Lemon Law in Utah applies to any new motor vehicle (as detailed above) that was falls under the following parameters:

It weighs 12,000 pounds or less (other than an RV); It has experienced at least one defect which has substantially impaired the vehicle’s use, value or safety.

How Do I Know if My Vehicle Is a Lemon?

Vehicle manufacturers are required to repair its defects within a reasonable number of repair attempts. Under the Utah Lemon Law statute, a “reasonable number of attempts” means one of the following:

  • The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership to be repaired at least four times for the same defect within the manufacturer’s warranty period or the first year after the vehicle was purchased or leased, whichever comes first, and the defect remains unrepaired; OR
  • The vehicle was out of service due to its repairs for at least thirty business days within the manufacturer’s warranty period or the first year after the vehicle was purchased or leased, whichever comes first.

Our attorneys have represented buyers of defective cars, trucks, motorcycles and RV’s in Utah for many years. If you think your vehicle may be a lemon, our Utah Lemon Law attorneys can assist you and answer any questions that you have.

What Will the Manufacturer Do For Me if My Vehicle Is a Lemon Vehicle?

If your vehicle is a lemon in the state of Utah, you are entitled to have the manufacturer repurchase it from you or replace it with a new, comparable vehicle. On the other hand, you might be able to recover a “cash-and-keep” settlement, through which the manufacturer pays you money as a result of the diminished value of your vehicle due to its defects and warranty repairs.

Jerald and Linda are Utah car buyers who sought our firm’s assistance in connection with engine defects they were experiencing with their used Dodge Durango. Jerald and Linda’s truck was out of service for more than 150 days as a result of its defects and repairs. They were in need of a Utah attorney who handled Lemon Law cases, and ultimately agreed to have our firm represent them. Throughout the course of their case, our attorneys negotiated with Chrysler’s attorneys, and after just a few months, we were able to procure a fair and reasonable cash-and-keep settlement for our clients. Chrysler also paid our attorneys’ fees, so Jerald and Linda did not have to incur that expense.

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