Indiana's Lemon Law, officially known as the Indiana Motor Vehicle Protection Act, is designed to provide a remedy to purchasers (and lessees) of new vehicles when there is a defect that the dealership can't fix. It applies to vehicles purchased or leased in Indiana, regardless of whether the purchaser is a resident of Indiana or the vehicle is registered in Indiana. It does not apply to vehicles that weigh over 10,000 pounds. It also does not apply to conversion vans, motor homes, farm machinery, road-building equipment, motorcycles, mopeds, snowmobiles, or any vehicle designed primarily for off-road use. Purchasers of these vehicles may, however, be able to pursue a lawsuit under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal statute, if the vehicle is nonconforming to a written or implied warranty.
