Understand How the Ohio Lemon Law Works for You

Before you can understand how the Ohio lemon law works for you it is important to understand what defines the law. In Ohio if your vehicle has a problem that is proven to reduce the value of your vehicle, or makes it a hazard to drive on the road, it is considered to be a lemon. It can be very upsetting to understand you have invested in something as expensive as a vehicle that has turned into a financial headache. Luckily is a resident of Ohio, the state is covered by a lemon law for motorcycles, cars, and light trucks that are less than a year old and have fewer than 18,000 miles on the odometer.

What Are Your First Steps?

When you realize that your vehicle has a problem you must first take it to an authorized manufacturer or dealership. Before you can actually use the lemon law you must give the dealership or manufacturer a reasonable opportunity to fix your vehicle. This includes having the car in the repair shop for a minimum of 30 days, there have been at least three attempts to repair the problem when previous repairs were not successful, or there has been at least one attempt to repair a serious problem that could cause serious injury and the repair was unsuccessful.

Once your car has been deemed a lemon you have the right to ask for a refund of your money, or replacement of the vehicle.
