Utah Lemon Law Rules



The Lemon Law applies to new cars under warranty and was extended in 1990 to also cover new leased vehicles and motor homes. The Lemon Law does NOT apply to used vehicles.

For your vehicle to qualify as a "lemon" under the Lemon Law:

  • The vehicle must have been purchased in the state of Utah;
  • The vehicle must be new and under warranty;
  • The vehicle must weigh less than 12,000 pounds;
  • The defect must "substantially impair the use, market value or safety of the vehicle";
  • The vehicle must have been to the manufacturer to have the same defect resolved at least four times OR out of service to the consumer a total of 30 days DURING the first year or the warranty period, whichever is less (if your problems occur AFTER this time period, you do NOT qualify for the Utah Lemon Law);
  • The defect cannot be the result of abuse, neglect or unauthorized modifications of the vehicle; AND
  • The consumer must go through any informal dispute settlement or arbitration procedure the manufacturer may have established.
