NJ Lemon Law

Lemon Law Unit

Motorized Wheelchair (Power Scooter)New Jersey’s Lemon Law Unit handles new car, used car and motorized wheelchair ( power scooter) complaints.

The law requires manufacturers to provide customers with warranties that last at least one year and cover defects which impair the use, value or safety of the motorized wheelchair and scooter.

If your wheelchair or scooter has the same problem after three repair attempts or is out of service for a total of 20 days, you may be entitled to a replacement, refund or early lease termination, minus a reasonable allowance for use. A reasonable allowance for use is based on the number of days that the wheelchair was used before you first reported the problem.

To participate in the Wheelchair Lemon Law dispute resolution process, you must submit an application and pay a non-refundable $50 filing fee. You can reach the Wheelchair Lemon Law by calling 973-504-6226 or write to PO Box 45026, Newark, NJ 07101.
