Getting Lemon Justice — Relief Under South Dakota Lemon Law

South Dakota Lemon Law provides several options for a successful Lemon Law claimant. First, you may be awarded a replacement vehicle of the same year, make, and model. You may also qualify for a monetary award, which can include:

  • The full contract price
  • Charges for undercoating
  • Dealer preparation charges
  • Transportation charges
  • Installed options
  • Nonrefundable portions of extended warranties and service contracts
  • Excise tax
  • License fees
  • Registration fees
  • Finance charges
  • Incidental damages, such as alternative transportation
  • Attorney's fees

The amount of the monetary reward may be reduced by a deduction for your use of the vehicle prior to first taking it in for repair, calculated by dividing the mileage by 100,000 and multiplying that number by the full purchase price.
