Everything you need to know about Oklahoma Lemon Law

Posted by Andrew Richardson on May 20th, 2021

The notion behind purchasing a new vehicle is to avoid the unnecessary hassle of repair and damage for at least a year or two. But, sadly, not all the new vehicles live up to the owner's expectations. There can be defects in the vehicle that doesn't seem to get repaired even after numerous repair attempts.

And this is where Oklahoma Lemon Law comes in. The enacted lemon law forces the manufacturers to fix the problem with the "lemon." Besides, the consumers in Oklahoma are also protected by the Federal Lemon law, also referred to as Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

What are the vehicles and defects covered under the lemon law?

The lemon law in Oklahoma manages to offer comprehensive protection to the consumers. The passenger vehicle must be registered in the state. But, there are a few limited exceptions on a vehicle weighing over 10,000 pounds or the living section of the motor home.

For a vehicle to be labeled as a lemon, it should possess substantial problem or defects that hamper the use, value and safety of the vehicle.

But, even if your vehicle doesn't meet the eligibility criteria, it doesn't mean you aren't eligible for relief. This is because federal lemon law covers all defects and problems for the vehicle under warranty, meaning it isn't limited to "substantial" impairment of value or use. 

What are the dealer's opportunities to repair the lemon?

Before you can request relief for your defective vehicle, it becomes important that you give the manufacturer enough opportunities to repair the defects.

As per Oklahoma Lemon Law, the manufacturer is offered four or more reasonable time to repair the same problem.

Likewise, the Oklahoma lemon law also assumes that the manufacturer was given enough days, around 30, not in a row, to fix the problems with the car.

What are the remedies provided to the consumer?

Once the manufacturer gets enough time to perform the repair attempt and still fails to repair the defect, then you, as a consumer, becomes eligible to receive relief under the Oklahoma lemon law.

And that means your manufacturer will need to replace the vehicle or repurchase it from you at a full price.

If the manufacturer agrees with the replacement option, you will require agreeing on the replacement vehicle offered. Or else, the manufacturer will provide you with a refund.

In refund, the manufacturer is also required to pay the collateral charges like tax payment and finance charges. But these collateral charges do not comprise interest payment.

Other payments include:

  • Attorney's fee
  • Expenses incurred due to vehicle defects.
