State Lemon Laws

Wisconsin Lemon Law Advice

Wisconsin has a very consumer friendly set of Lemon Laws, that are stronger than most states. The number of repair attempts required for a car to qualify as a lemon is high and the length of coverage is short - these favor the manufacturer. However, the definition of what vehicles are covered is broad - these favor the consumer.
