for Consumers Changes
Senate Bill 1718 was signed by Governor
This bill alters Lemon Law protections for
new vehicle owners and small businesses.
It modifies Lemon Law coverage by reducing
the number of failed repair attempts from
four to two on defects likely to cause
death or serious bodily injury before a
vehicle is considered a lemon. It
also expands Lemon Law protection to those
vehicles with a manufacturer's weight
rating of less than 10,000 pounds that are
bought or used primarily for business.
