What Vehicles Are Not Covered Under The Lemon Law?

The law does not cover used motor vehicles (including program vehicles), repossessed vehicles, non­travel trailers, boats or farm equipment. Neither does it cover vehicles with:
  • problems caused by the owner`s abuse, neglect or unauthorized changes to the vehicle,
  • parts or components not authorized or installed by the manufacturer, or
  • problems that do not substantially affect the use or market value of the vehicle. Minor rattles or stereo problems are usually not considered serious under the Lemon Law.

When the term manufacturer is used, it should be understood to include distributor and converter, as well.
