If you are awarded a refund under the terms of the lemon law, the manufacturer must refund:
- The full purchase price of the vehicle, or the amount you actually paid on your lease. However, for either a purchased or leased vehicle, the manufacturer may deduct a reasonable allowance for the time that you were able to use the vehicle. This deduction cannot exceed 10 cents per mile or 10 percent of the purchase price, whichever is less;
- The cost of certain options installed by the manufacturer or dealer;
- Sales tax;
- License fees;
- Registration fees;
- Reimbursement for towing; and,
- Rental expenses.
Note: If you are awarded a replacement vehicle, you have the option of receiving a refund instead.
