How long do I have to file a lemon law claim?

Posted on: July 16th, 2014 by gusdorflawfirm No Comments

The Missouri state lemon law gives consumers 18 months from the date of purchase to file a claim. If a consumer goes through informal arbitration, such as the BBB Autoline, near the end of that 18 month period, the time period may be extended up to an additional 90 days. Otherwise, after 18 months, the Missouri lemon law statute of limitation expires, making it difficult or impossible to obtain a repurchase or replacement of your vehicle.

When a consumer prevails a Missouri lemon law claim, the statute provides that the “manufacturer shall, at its option, either replace the new motor vehicle with a comparable new vehicle acceptable to the consumer, or take title of the vehicle from the consumer and refund to the consumer the full purchase price, including all reasonably incurred collateral charges, less a reasonable allowance for the consumer’s use of the vehicle.”
