What is the Nevada Lemon Law?
The Nevada Lemon Law provides legal remedies for consumers who have purchased a defective motor vehicle. It allows consumers to seek compensation or a replacement vehicle from the manufacturer if the vehicle has a substantial defect that impairs its use, value, or safety.
The law applies to both new and used vehicles purchased in Nevada, as long as they are covered by a manufacturer’s express warranty at the time of purchase.
One of the key features of the Nevada Lemon Law is that it sets forth specific criteria that must be met for a vehicle to be considered a lemon.
The defect must occur within the manufacturer’s warranty period or within one year after the delivery of the vehicle, whichever comes first. The defect must substantially impair the vehicle’s use, value, or safety, and the manufacturer must have been given a reasonable opportunity to repair the defect.
When a consumer discovers a defect in their vehicle, they must give written notice to the manufacturer and provide them with a final opportunity to repair the defect. If the manufacturer is unable to fix the vehicle after a reasonable number of repair attempts, the consumer may be eligible for compensation or a replacement vehicle.
The consumer may also be entitled to recover reasonable attorney fees incurred in pursuing their lemon law claim.
Nevada Lemon Law does not cover defects caused by unauthorized modifications made by the consumer, or defects resulting from the consumer’s abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance of the vehicle. The law aims to protect consumers from defects in the original manufacturing or design of the vehicle.
