Wisconsin Lemon Law

plug-free-img.png

Car owners in Wisconsin experiencing repeated problems with their autos are able to obtain assistance under a number of consumer based laws. Although the Wisconsin lemon law provides very effective relief, the federal lemon law can also be utilized to the benefit of the consumer.

The Wisconsin lemon law is one of the more effective lemon laws in the country. It has real teeth in that it gives manufacturers 30 days to respond to a lemon law claim. If the manufacturer does not respond in that time period and the consumer is successful in satisfying the elements of Wisconsin lemon law, the consumer may be entitled to double damages (monetary damages equaling twice the purchase price of the car). Our Wisconsin lemon law attorney can assist you by guiding you through the necessary notification process to insure that you are following the Wisconsin lemon law requirements.

To qualify under the Wisconsin lemon law a car must satisfy the following:

  • You must have presented your car for repair for the same defect four times OR your car must have been out of service for 30 days for the same or different repairs and these repairs must have taken place within the first year of ownership of the car
  • You must have purchased/leased the car in Wisconsin and be the original owner
  • The repairs must have been made under warranty and the defects must substantially impair the car’s use, value or safety.

Our Wisconsin lemon law attorneys will evaluate your claim at no cost to you, determine if we can provide you assistance, and help guide you through the Wisconsin lemon law demand process. Often times the manufacturer may inform you that the car’s defects do not “substantially impair” the use, value or safety of the car even if the repair history satisfies the other aspects of the Wisconsin lemon law. Let our Wisconsin lemon law attorney make this determination for you.

The Wisconsin lemon law also requires that the manufacturer pay your attorney fees. As such, any services that we provide to you under the Wisconsin lemon law will be done at no charge to you.

Because of the relatively short time period that a consumer has to meet the requirements of the Wisconsin lemon law, a car’s repair history may not qualify under the law. This does not mean however that there is no remedy available to you. The federal lemon law (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) states that if a manufacturer is unable to repair a car under warranty then the owner of the car may be entitled to relief ranging from monetary damages to a repurchase of the car. Please contact us so that our Wisconsin lemon law attorney can review your repair history. Any claim we make on your behalf under the federal lemon law also incorporates a demand that the manufacturer pay your attorney fees.

Is Your Car a Lemon under the Wisconsin Lemon Law?

If you have a vehicle that has had repeated repairs or has been out of service for several days, it may be a lemon under the Wisconsin Lemon Law and you may be entitled to a cash settlement, refund or a new car. Even if your vehicle does not meet the Wisconsin lemon law requirements, you may still be entitled to a cash settlement, refund or new car under federal law. These laws can apply to used cars too.

No Cost to You!

You paid a lot of money for your vehicle and cannot afford to delay in resolving the problems with your vehicle. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to resolve your case. You must act quickly and present your problems to the manufacturer. Our experienced Wisconsin Lemon Law attorneys are here to walk you through every aspect of the lemon law process and make it quick and easy. Most of all, we can put an end to the headaches with your car.

Please contact our Wisconsin lemon law attorney if you believe that your car may be a lemon. Our Wisconsin lemon law attorney will provide you with free advice regarding your potential lemon law claims, and if you have a claim, the manufacturer will be responsible for the costs and attorney fees involved in bringing your lemon law claim.
