PA Lemon Law Information and Resource Index

What is the Pennsylvania Lemon Law?

The Lemon Law varies by state. The main purpose of the Pennsylvania Lemon Law is to provide vehicle owners of both cars and passenger trucks, with a no cost method of forcing vehicle makers to repurchase defective vehicles. If the PA Lemon Law is found to have been violated, the manufacturer must buy the consumer’s vehicle back and pay all of their attorney’s fees. At Power & Associates, we take our lemon law cases on a no-cost, no-fee basis. We bear the fees and the court costs, win or lose.

Pennsylvania New Car Lemon Law Summary

The PA New Car Lemon law was enacted to protect consumers who purchase or lease, and register a new vehicle in the state of Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, a car may qualify as a lemon if a defect or condition that substantially impairs the use, value or safety of the vehicle is reported to a dealer within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first, and the vehicle requires more than three repair attempts to repair the defect or the vehicle is out of service for thirty days or more for any number of defects or conditions. Only the first report of a defect or condition must be reported within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles. The subsequent repair attempts or days out of service may occur after the first year.

If the defect can not be repaired in a reasonable number of repair attempts, you may be eligible for a replacement vehicle or the refund of the purchase price, less a limited allowance for use. You may request an arbitration of your case through the manufacturer’s dispute settlement program if one exist or you may bring a civil action.

How Do I Know If I Have A Case?

Don’t worry if you are not sure if your car is a lemon. We can usually decide if you have a legal case once you have provided us with some initial information. We need your vehicle’s VIN number (Vehicle Identification Number)purchase documents, and either the repair invoices or a summary of repairs performed.
