Business Vehicles — Lemon Law in Wyoming

Wyoming Lemon Law covers new business vehicles under 10,000 pounds that are purchased or registered in Wyoming. In order to be considered a "lemon," the vehicle must meet the following requirements:

  • Does not conform to the manufacturer's express warranty
  • Has substantial defects affecting the use, safety or value of the vehicle
  • Has manufacturer's defects that occurred during the first year from the delivery date
  • Has been taken in three times for the same problem or has been out of service for a cumulative total of 30 business days
  • The manufacturer has been notified in writing of the defect and has had a final opportunity to fix the problem
  • You have participated in the manufacturer's informal arbitration program, if one exists

Under Wyoming Lemon Law, within one year after the delivery date of the vehicle, you must notify the manufacturer in writing of the problem. Sample demand letter.

You must also participate in the manufacturer's informal dispute resolution process (if one exists) before you are eligible to file a Lemon Law claim in court.

Wyoming 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 purchase price
  • Collateral charges
  • Attorney's fees

The amount of the monetary reward may be reduced by a deduction for your use of the vehicle.

Wherever you are in the Lemon Law claim process, it is generally in your best interest to have an attorney represent you. After all, vehicle manufacturers have teams of lawyers that do nothing but fight Lemon Law claims. As you consider your options, imagine the difference between going up against a team of lawyers on your own, versus having a Lemon Law attorney speak on your behalf. Also keep in mind that being represented by a Lemon Law attorney won't cost you a dime if you go to court; the law says that the car manufacturer has to pay your attorney's fees in successful Lemon Law claims.
