How Long Do I Have To File A Complaint?

A Lemon Law complaint must be filed within six months following the earlier of:
  1. expiration of the express warranty term;
  2. 24 months; or
  3. 24,000 miles following the date of delivery of the vehicle (except TRVs)

The filing period is determined by which of the above events comes first. To be safe, file your complaint as soon as you realize the dealer is having problems repairing the vehicle.

Even if you have gone past the time limit allowed for a repurchase, the Motor Vehicle Board may still be able to help you get repairs under your vehicle warranty.
