New Hampshire Lemon Law Info – NH Lemon Law Attorneys

What is the Lemon Law in New Hampshire?

In the state of New Hampshire, 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 New Hampshire Lemon Law?

New Hampshire lemon law covers new passenger vehicles, SUVs, vans, trucks, motorcycles and off-road recreational vehicles under 11,000 pounds that are purchased or leased (for at least two years) in New Hampshire. It also covers used vehicles that are under the manufacturer’s express warranty period. 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, safety or value of the vehicle
  • Has manufacturer’s defects that occurred during the manufacturer’s warranty period
  • Has been taken in three times for the same problem or has been out of service for a cumulative total of 30 business days for a series of unrelated problems within the manufacturer’s warranty period
  • You have filed for the New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Arbitration program within one year after the warranty period has expired
  • You have participated in the New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Arbitration program
  • Unless you purchased it outright, you have continued to make payments on the vehicle

Nevada Revised Statutes, Sections 597.600 through 597.688 are the state’s lemon law.

Does the New Hampshire 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 NH Lemon Law

Getting Lemon Justice — Relief Under New Hampshire Law

New Hampshire 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
  • Finance charges
  • Credits and trade-in allowances
  • 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 prior to the first repair attempt, which is calculated by dividing the number of miles driven 100,000, and multiplying by the full purchase price of the vehicle.

Pursuing a NH Lemon Law Claim

Under New Hampshire lemon law, after three repair attempts or after the vehicle is out of service for 30 business days, you must send the manufacturer a letter. 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.

Under the law, you must file a claim with the New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Arbitration program within one year after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired.

If your Demand for Arbitration is accepted by the New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Arbitration Board, a hearing will be scheduled within 40 days of acceptance. The manufacturer will have the opportunity to repair the vehicle one final time. The MVAB has 30 days from the date of your hearing to issue a written decision. If you win, the manufacturer has 30 days from the date of the written decision to comply with or appeal the MVAB’s order. If you lose, you have 30 days to file an appeal with the superior court.
