Pennsylvania Lemon Law covers new passenger cars, SUVs, vans, and trucks that are designed to transport up to 15 people, and that are purchased or leased in Pennsylvania. The law also covers used cars that are sold by dealers within one year or 12,000 miles of the original purchase (whichever comes first). In order to be considered a "lemon," the vehicle must meet the following requirements:
Under the law, the dealer is required to provide you with a detailed copy of the repair invoice each time you bring your vehicle in for repair. In addition, the dealer must notify the manufacturer of the problem when you bring your vehicle in a second time for the same repair.
If your vehicle qualifies as a lemon, you can demand a replacement vehicle or a refund. An amount can be deducted for your use of the vehicle, but it can't exceed ten percent of the purchase price or ten cents per mile driven before the first repair.
