What Vehicles Are Covered Under The Lemon Law?
The vehicle must either still be covered by the express warranty and the consumer reports the problem to the manufacturer during the term of that express warranty or during the period of one year following the date of original delivery to the consumer, whichever is the later date.

|Passenger vehicles, pickup trucks, vans and motor home chassis used primarily for personal, family, or household purposes.||3 repair attempts or 30 calendar days out of service. 1 attempt for a condition likely to cause death or serious bodily injury.|
