Illinois Lemon Law

The Illinois New Vehicle Buyer Protection Act protects purchasers of new vehicles. Under the Act, if the seller is unable to conform the new vehicle to its applicable express warranties after a reasonable number of attempts, the manufacturer is required to either replace or repurchase the lemon vehicle.

In Illinois, there are two ways to establish a presumption that a reasonable number of repair attempts have been undertaken:

(1) if within one year or 12,000 miles (whichever occurs first after the date of the delivery) the same nonconformity has been subject to repair 4 or more times and such nonconformity continues to exist; or
(2) if within one year or 12,000 miles (whichever occurs first after the date of the delivery) the vehicle has been out of service by reason of repair for a total of 30 or more business days.

Any action under the Illinois New Vehicle Buyer Protection Act has to be commenced within 18 months of delivery of the vehicle to consumer.

Is Your Car a Lemon under the Illinois Lemon Law or Federal Lemon Law?

If you have a vehicle that has had repeated repairs or has been out of service for several days, it may be a lemon under the state or federal lemon law and you may be entitled to a cash settlement, refund or a new car.

Often times the dealer or manufacturer’s representative will tell you that your car does not qualify under the lemon law and that there is nothing that you can do. Do not let them discourage you from pursuing a lemon law claim. Instead contact our Illinois lemon law attorney for a free case evaluation.

You paid a lot of money for your vehicle and cannot afford to delay in resolving the problems with your vehicle. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to resolve your case. You must act quickly and present your problems to the manufacturer. Our experienced attorneys are here to walk you through every aspect of the lemon law process and make it quick and easy. Most of all, we can put an end to the headaches with your car.

Even if your car does not meet the requirements of the Illinois lemon law, we may be able to help you under a federal warranty law known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Under this federal lemon law a warrantor is required to repair your car within a reasonable time. Generally speaking, if your car has had at least four repairs which were covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, our Illinois lemon law attorney may be able to help you under this federal lemon law.

Our Illinois lemon law attorney will evaluate your car’s warranty history and determine which of the above lemon laws may apply. If your lemon car does not qualify for a refund or replacement, you still may be entitled to a substantial cash settlement for the warranty problems that you have experienced with your car.
