What Types Of Defects Are Covered Under The Used Car Lemon Law?

The law requires a dealer to repair any defects in covered parts that occur during the applicable warranty period and that substantially impair the value of the used motor vehicle, as long as you notify the dealer of such defects within this warranty period. As the law requires the warranty to cover specific parts, you should contact the Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles to find out if the defective part on your vehicle is covered.

It does not cover defects that are the result of your abuse, neglect, or unreasonable modifications or alterations to the vehicle.
