What Qualifies for Lemon Law in Louisiana?
Every state has lemon laws, although the details are unique to each state. Under the Louisiana’s lemon laws, manufacturers have a legal duty to repair a defect in a new vehicle. The law protects consumers who purchased a defective vehicle, motor home, all-terrain vehicle, personal watercraft, or recreational vehicle with a defect that substantially impairs the market value, use of the vehicle, or both.
Under the Louisiana lemon law statutes, you have legal rights if:
- The vehicle was out of service for 90 or more days
- Repairs have been attempted on the same defect four or more times
- Repairs were performed within the warranty period or within one year of purchase
There is a deadline for filing claims under Louisiana lemon law. You must file a claim within three years of the date of purchase or one year from the end of the vehicle warranty, whichever is later. If you do not file a claim within the time period stated in the statute, you may forfeit your right to compensation under Louisiana’s lemon law statutes.
