STANDARDS OF THE WYOMING LEMON LAW
The following is a brief explanation of most relevant provisions of the Wyoming lemon law.
The complete text of the lemon law can be found at Wyoming Stat. § 40-17-101.
The Wyoming lemon law covers any motor vehicle sold or registered in the state, with an
unladen weight of under 10,000 pounds.
The lemon law covers the following “consumers”:
1. Any person who purchases, other than for purposes of resale, a motor vehicle to which an
express warranty applies;
2. Any person to whom a motor vehicle is transferred during the term of an express warranty
applicable to the motor vehicle; and
3. Any person entitled by the terms of an express warranty applicable to a motor vehicle to
enforce the warranty.
The lemon law appears not to cover a lessee.
The lemon law does not apply to vehicle converters.
The lemon law covers any defect or condition that substantially impairs the use and fair market
value of the motor vehicle to the consumer. This is referred to as a nonconformity.
The Wyoming lemon law provides manufacturers with an affirmative defense if it can be shown
that the alleged nonconformity does not substantially impair the use and fair market value of the
motor vehicle, or the nonconformity is the result of abuse, neglect or unauthorized modification
or alteration of the motor vehicle by a consumer.
