The lemon law covers any defect or condition that substantially impairs the use and market value of the motor vehicle to the consumer. These vehicle problems are called nonconformities.
The lemon law provides the manufacturer an affirmative defense if the manufacturer can show t hat the alleged nonconformity is the result of abuse, neglect, or unauthorized modifications or alterations of a vehicle by a consumer.
The lemon law covers any of the following:
The Nebraska lemon law establishes a presumption that a reasonable number of repair attempts has been made if either of the following occurs within the term of manufacturer's written new - vehicle warranty or during the period of one year following the date of original delivery of the motor vehicle to a consumer, whichever is the earlier date:
The manufacturer's written new - vehicle warranty term, the one year period and the forty day period are extended by any period of time during which repair services are not available to the consumer because of war, invasion or strike, or fire, flood or other natural disaster.
The lemon law provisions requiring repurchase or replacement of a nonconforming motor vehicle do not apply to a consumer who has not first used an informal dispute settlement procedure that has been certified by the Director of Motor Vehicles as complying with lemon law regulations. (Consumers may check with the BBB or Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles to determine whether the manufacturer of their vehicle offers a dispute settlement procedure that has been certified.)CLICK HERE to read more about Nebraska Lemon Law
