Under the Washington State Motor Vehicle Lemon Law, a vehicle is considered a lemon when attempts to repair a vehicle have not been successful. It could have one or more substantial defects and attempts of two or more were initiated but the problem still continues to exist.
In the state of Washington, your vehicle may be covered if it is a passenger car, small or medium sized truck, large motorcycle or motor home. It has to be originally purchased or leased in Washington State and also registered there.
If you do own a lemon, you can request an arbitration hearing thought the Attorney Generals office which has to be submitted within 30 months of the vehicles original delivery date. Unlike other states which require you to pay a small filing fee, here you dont have to pay anything. The only thing you have to do is prove your case.
Vehicles which are not covered under the Washington lemon law include motorcycles with engine displacements of less than 750 cubic centimeters, trucks that have a gross weight rating of 19,000 lbs, portions of a motor home and vehicles that are part of a business consisting of more than 10 units.
