Lemon Law

West Virginia provides strong protections for new car buyers in West Virginia.

§46A-6A-3 of the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection act provides that, “If a new motor vehicle does not conform to all applicable express warranties and the consumer reports the nonconformity to the manufacturer, its agent or its authorized dealer during the term of the express warranties or within a period of one year following the date of original delivery of the new motor vehicle to a consumer, whichever is the longer period, the manufacturer, its agent or its authorized dealer shall make the repairs necessary to conform the vehicle to the express warranties, notwithstanding the fact that the repairs are made after the expiration of the warranty term.”

If the dealer doesn’t fix the problem after you’ve tried to get it fixed, then you may have a lemon. West Virginia law requires the dealer to replace the car with another new car that works. If the dealership fails to replace the car, then you are entitled to money damages. It’s as simple as that.
