The “Lemon Law” protects you on all big ticket items you purchase, including used cars.
FACT: Almost all states have lemon laws covering new car purchases. But there is no universal lemon law applying to all big-ticket items such as used cars, televisions, lawn mowers and refrigerators. Always investigate the history of a used car or product and have it checked by a mechanic or other knowledgeable person before purchasing. Indiana’s Lemon Law applies to new motor vehicles purchase or leased in the state and covers repair attempts made during the first 18,000 miles or 18 months. For problems with new cars the BBB has a national program called Autoline, most major car manufacturers participate. You can call them at 800-955-5100 to discuss your situation.
