Nebraska Lemon Law Info – NE Lemon Law Attorneys

What is the Lemon Law in Nebraska?

In the state of Nebraska, if your vehicle is determined to be a lemon, you are entitled to a refund of your money minus a deduction for mileage from the mileage at the first repair, and the manufacturer also pays off your loan, and you return the vehicle to the manufacturer. Or in the alternative, you’re entitled to a replacement vehicle. You’d be entitled to a new vehicle in place of your current vehicle, and there’s also the possibility of cash compensation where you keep your vehicle. In all of those instances, the manufacturer’s required to pay the attorney’s fees as well.

What vehicles Are Covered Under the Nebraska Lemon Law?

Nebraska lemon law covers new passenger vehicles, SUVs, vans, and trucks that are purchased in Nebraska. In order to be considered a “lemon,” the vehicle must meet the following requirements:

  • Does not conform to the manufacturer’s express warranty
  • Has substantial defects affecting the use or value of the vehicle
  • Has manufacturer’s defects that occurred during the first year from the delivery date or the expiration of the warranty (whichever period ends first)
  • Has been taken in four times for the same problem or has been out of service for a cumulative total of 40 business days
  • The manufacturer or dealer has been notified in writing of the defect prior to the one-year anniversary of the delivery date and has been given a final (the fourth) opportunity to repair it
  • The owner has participated in the manufacturer’s informal arbitration program, if one exists

Nebraska Statutes, Sections 60-2701 through 60-2709 are the state’s lemon law.

Does the Nebraska Lemon Law apply to used cars?

Typically a vehicle that is purchased used may still qualify as a lemon if it was purchased and the problems occurred while the vehicle was still under the manufacturers new car warranty or possibly covered by a certified pre-owned warranty or extended warranty. Finally it should be noted that a used vehicle that is purchased as is and without a warranty cannot qualify as a lemon under the NE Lemon Law.

Getting Lemon Justice — Relief Under Nebraska Law

Nebraska lemon law provides several options for a successful lemon law claimant. First, you may be awarded a replacement vehicle of the same year, make, and model. You may also qualify for a monetary award, which can include:

  • The full purchase price
  • Sales tax
  • License fees
  • Registration fees
  • Attorney’s fees

The amount of the monetary reward may be reduced by a deduction for your use of the vehicle.

Pursuing a NE Lemon Law Claim

If you want to pursue a claim under Nebraska’s lemon law, you must first send a notification to the manufacturer, and give them one last chance to repair the vehicle. You should send this letter after the third repair attempt, or after your vehicle has been out of service for 30 days. The notice must be sent when the vehicle is less than one year old. You should send this letter by certified mail, with a return receipt requested. Here’s a sample demand letter that you can adapt for your use.

Once the manufacturer receives your letter, they will tell you where to take your vehicle for a final repair attempt. If the problem still isn’t fixed, you must enter into the BBB Auto Line arbitration program if the manufacturer is certified by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles. If the manufacturer isn’t certified, you can sue them in court. The same holds true if you’re not happy with the outcome of arbitration; arbitration is binding for the manufacturer, but not for you.
