West Virginia Lemon Law

What Is the West Virginia Lemon Law?

The Lemon Law in the state of West Virginia provides protection to consumers who have purchased new passenger vehicles, pickup trucks, vans or motor home chassis used for personal, family or household purposes, and have encountered problems with those vehicles.

How Do I Know if My Vehicle Is a Lemon?

Manufacturers of motor vehicles are legally obligated to repair its nonconformities within a reasonable number of repair attempts. Under West Virginia Lemon Law statute, a “reasonable number of repair attempts” means one of the following:

  • The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership three or more times for the same nonconformity, or within one year following the date of purchase; OR
  • The vehicle was out of service being repaired for at least thirty calendar days during the warranty term or within one year following the date of purchase, whichever comes first; OR
  • The nonconformity results in a condition which is likely to cause death or serious bodily harm, and a reasonable number of attempts have taken place.

Our attorneys have represented consumers in West Virginia for many years. If you are not sure whether your vehicle qualifies as a lemon, our West Virginia Lemon Law attorneys can assist you and answer any questions that you may have.

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

If your vehicle is a Lemon in West Virginia, you are able to have the manufacturer buy it back from you or replace the vehicle with a comparable new one. Alternatively, there is also the possibility of obtaining a “cash and keep” settlement, which is when the manufacturer pays you money due to the diminished value of your vehicle as a result of its defects and repairs.

Samantha and Cameron are West Viginia consumers who sought our firm’s assistance in connection with electrical system issues and other problems they were having with their new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander. These clients took their vehicle to an authorized Mitsubishi dealership on multiple occasions for repairs, and it was out of service for over 50 days as a result. They were in need of a West Virginia consumer attorney that handles Lemon Law cases and agreed to have our firm represent them. Throughout the course of their case, our attorneys engaged in settlement negotiations with Mitsubishi, and we were eventually able to procure a fair and reasonable cash settlement for them, and Mitsubishi also paid our attorneys fees. We were able to successfully resolve Samantha and Cameron’s case without even having to file a lawsuit against Mitsubishi.

Even if your vehicle does not fall under the 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 the manufacturer’s warranty. The law also requires the manufacturer to pay the consumer’s attorneys’ fees so we do not have to charge our clients for our services.
