House passes “lemon law” bill

Oklahoma House passed the bill with huge approval. It would strengthen the consumer protections for buyers of sour lemons(read defective vehicles).

The legislation would give consumers the choice of a refund or replacement of a defective vehicle. Currently, the choice of reimbursement or replacement is at the discretion of the manufacturer.

It also places a standard in state law for a manufacturer’s charge for mileage on a defective vehicle and prohibits a manufacturer from charging for mileage if the lemon is simply replaced.

Thus the new legislation will bring the manufacturers in equal footing with the vehicle buyers. However one of the measure’s strongest supporters said she fears the bill may get a bumpy ride in the Senate.
