Colorado Lemon Law

plug transparent

Colorado’s Lemon Law covers only new self-propelled vehicles, including pickups and vans. Motor homes and motorcycles are excluded from the Lemon Law. When a consumer purchases a new vehicle, it usually comes with a warranty. Most of these warranties state that the manufacturer will repair or replace defective parts in accordance with the terms of the warranty. This does not mean that the manufacturer will automatically replace the vehicle or refund money. The warranty is simply a promise to do certain things.

When a new vehicle has been purchased with a manufacturer’s warranty and it has a defect that substantially impairs its use and market value within one year of purchase and that defect is not repaired after a “reasonable number of attempts,” the consumer may have recourse under Colorado’s Lemon Law. A court may order the manufacturer to replace the vehicle or refund the purchase price minus a reasonable allowance for use of the vehicle.

Under the law, a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair a defect applies when the same defect remains after it has been subject to repair four (4) or more times within the first year after the date of original delivery. It also applies when the vehicle is out of service for repairs for a cumulative total of thirty (30) or more business days during the warranty term or one year after original delivery, whichever comes first.

Even if your car does not meet the requirements of the Colorado 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 Colorado lemon law attorney may be able to help you under this federal lemon law.

Our Colorado 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.

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 Colorado lemon law attorney for a free case evaluation. If you have a lemon law claim that we can help you with, the manufacturer will be responsible for all the costs and attorney fees.
