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

This law covers used passenger motor vehicles—excluding motorcycles, motor homes, and off­road vehicles—that are normally used for personal, family, or household purposes and that are subject to a warranty. To qualify, the vehicle must have been driven more than the amount necessary in moving or road testing a new vehicle prior to delivery.

The law does not cover used cars that were purchased from private individuals; it only covers those purchased from a dealer. Under this law, a dealer is any person or business who sells or offers for sale three or more used cars within a 12­month period.
