What is the "Lemon Law" in West Virginia?
The West Virginia Lemon Law applies to personal vehicles purchased in WV that suffer a non-conformity – a defect or condition, which substantially impairs the use or value – that is not repaired after three attempts by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. According to the WV Lemon Law, this non-conformity must first occur within the first 12 months.
Likewise, the West Virginia Lemon Law applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year.
The West Virginia Lemon Law also can come into play after one unsuccessful repair attempt for a defect which could cause death or serious bodily harm.
It's important to note that, even if your car falls outside of the limitations established by the Lemon Law, there are still Federal Breach of Warranty Laws which apply. If your car has an original or extended manufacturer's warranty and has a problem that can't be fixed after three repair attempts, chances are we can help you.
The West Virginia Lemon Law can be confusing and is open up to numerous interpretations if you don't understand how it works.
