According to the laws in the state, if the car you buy or lease turns out as a "lemon", the manufacturer has to replace it free or refund the price (minus a reasonable amount for mileage).

Before the law applies, certain characteristics for a "lemon" have to be met by the car in question.

The vehicle has to be no more than a year old and still under warranty.

Also, it has a serious defect the dealer can't fix in four tries, or it has one or many defects that prevent you from using it for 30 days or more (the 30 days need not be consecutive)

The defects covered under the Wisconsin Lemon Law must seriously affect the use, value or safety of your vehicle and must be covered by the warranty.

The Wisconsin law covers any new car, truck, motorcycle or motor home you buy or lease, even if you register the vehicle in another state. It also covers a demonstrator or executive vehicle.
