What is a Lemon Car Under Kansas Law?
Kansas lemon law covers leased and new passenger vehicles, SUVs, vans, and trucks under 12,000 pounds. 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 and are reported during the warranty period or the first 12 months from the delivery date (whichever comes first)
- Has been taken in four times for the same defect or ten times for unrelated defects, or has been out of service for 30 calendar days
Kansas Statute 50-645 is the state’s lemon law.

Getting Lemon Justice — Relief Under Kansas Law
Kansas lemon law provides several options for a successful lemon law claimant. You may be awarded a replacement vehicle of the same year, make, and model, or receive a refund can include:
- The full contract price of the vehicle
- Manufacturer- or dealer-installed options
- Finance charges
- Use taxes
- Title charges
- Incidental charges, such as towing charges and alternate transportation
- Attorney’s fees
The amount of the refund may be reduced by a deduction for your use of the vehicle, which is calculated according to the most recent edition of “Your Driving Costs,” published by the American Automobile Association.
Pursuing a KS Lemon Law Claim
Under Kansas lemon law, you must notify the manufacturer of the problem with your vehicle within the warranty period or within 12 months of taking delivery of the vehicle (whichever comes first). Here’s a sample demand letter that you can adapt for your use.
If the manufacturer has an informal dispute resolution process, you must go through that process prior to filing a lemon lawsuit in court.

What Happens When You Hire a Lemon Law Lawyer?
A good lemon lawyer will work on your behalf to get the compensation to which you’re entitled – typically in the form of a refund, a replacement vehicle, or a cash settlement. Your Lemon Law attorney will ask you for all of your records, such as repair orders and correspondence, that pertain to your lemon. Your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation of your vehicle’s repair history, then present the manufacturer with a statement outlining your case and demanding full recovery. More often than not, the manufacturer will settle; if not, though, your Lemon Law attorney should be prepared to sue the manufacturer. Your lawyer should be able to resolve your case within one to two months.
