Ohio Lemon Law Summary

The Ohio lemon law covers (1) a passenger car, (2) a noncommercial motor vehicle, or (3) those parts of any motor home that are not part of the permanently installed facilities used for cold storage, cooking, eating and sleeping.

A “passenger car” is any motor vehicle that is designed and used for carrying not more than nine persons and includes any motor vehicle that is designed and used for carrying not more than fifteen persons in a ridesharing arrangement. Guidance from the Attorney General’s Office indicates that a pick-up truck used exclusively for business purposes is not covered by the lemon law.
