Pennsylvania Lemon Law Summary

Your car may be declared a lemon car if it meets all of the following Pennsylvania Lemon Law conditions:
  • it has a nonconformity (a defect, malfunction, or condition)
  • the nonconformity is covered by the manufacturer's express warranty
  • the nonconformity SUBSTANTIALLY impairs the use, market value, or safety of the car
  • the nonconformity is not the result of an accident, abuse, neglect, or alteration of the car by persons other than the manufacturer or its authorized dealer
  • you reported the nonconformity to the manufacturer's authorized dealer during the Pennsylvania Lemon Law Rights Period of 1 year or 12,000 miles whichever comes first.
  • you gave the manufacturer or its authorized dealer three opportunities to repair the nonconformity**

** Must all 3 repair attempts occur within the 12,000 mile or one year PA Lemon Law Period?

The Pennsylvania Lemon Law only requires the consumer to report the defect at least once during the lemon law period of 12,000 miles or one year whichever comes first. The consumer does not have to bring the vehicle in for service 3 times during that period. Therefore, if your vehicle was brought in for service at least once during the lemon law period, and you continued to service your car for the same defect after the 12,000 mile or one year lemon law period, you may still have a valid claim under the lemon law.
