You are entitled to Nevada Lemon Law protection when the number of repeat repairs for the same defect or condition is unreasonable or if the total time your car or motorcycle is in the repair shop for warranty repair(s) is unreasonable.
You don’t need both too many repairs and too much time without your vehicle for the Lemon Law to apply, only one or the other.
The Lemon Law covers you when your vehicle’s use and value are substantially impaired (negatively impacted) by its defects and problems. This makes sense because like most people, you bought a new car or motorcycle with a new vehicle price so you would have reliability and wouldn’t have to deal with used vehicle problems.
It is presumed under the Lemon Law that your car or motorcycle’s manufacturer has had a reasonable opportunity to repair your vehicle when there have been four or more repairs for the same problem, or if your vehicle has been out of service for 30 or more days in the repair shop as a result of repairs (regardless of whether the problem is the same) within the first year of ownership.
The presumptions apply in two separate ways:
1) If there are four or more repairs for the same problem in your car a Lemon Law presumption applies even if there are only four days in the repair shop.
2) If you have a repair that takes 30 or more days, then it doesn’t matter that there has only been one repair. You still get the benefit of the Lemon Law presumption.
Please keep in mind that the presumptions are written in the Nevada Lemon Law to help you prove you have a “Lemon,” they are not any type of barrier to recovery. You may still have a valid case even if your car or motorcycle doesn’t have this number of repairs or time out of service if the overall repair history is unreasonable under the circumstances.
When your car or motorcycle is covered by the Lemon Law you are entitled to a Refund (minus a reasonable usage fee) or a New Comparable Replacement of your “Lemon” while never stepping foot in a courtroom because over 95% of our cases are successfully resolved out of court in 1-3 months without any lawsuit.
Additional warranty law enables you to make the vehicle’s manufacturer pay for attorneys’ fees as part of your settlement.
Alternatively, as a compromise, it is possible to negotiate a substantial cash compensation settlement for you with you keeping your car or motorcycle along with attorneys’ fees being paid by the car or motorcycle company. This compensation is for having overpaid for your vehicle given the problems you’ve experienced and for your inconvenience.
These ways of getting rid of or compensated for your “Lemon” car or motorcycle are available to you regardless of whether the repairs you sought were “free” under your vehicle’s warranty.
With that being said, there is a strict 18 month from the date your vehicle is originally put in service time limit on Lemon Law claims so please do not delay and lose out on your rights to Lemon Law compensation. Get Lemon Law help today!
In addition to the Lemon Law, there are multiple other legal ways we can help you receive cash compensation for your defective vehicle. It is also possible for you to obtain compensation through the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, State warranty common law, and the Nevada version of the Uniform Commercial Code.
If you feel like you’ve suffered enough worry, uncertainty, and aggravation from your “Lemon” and that you deserve the compensation the law entitles you to, please submit the vehicle information requested in our FREE Lemon Law Evaluation page.
