The term “vehicle” in the Missouri Lemon Law

March 3, 2010

The Missouri lemon law defines a motor vehicle as “those vehicles propelled by power other than muscular power.” This certainly covers almost all cars and trucks on the road, which use an engine and/or battery power. The Flintstones’ car, though, would not be covered.

The Missouri lemon law also covers the “chassis, engine, powertrain and component parts” of Recreational Vehicles (RVs).

What about an RV without an engine?  The statute does not say that a vehicle must be self-propelled. Most RVs are designed to be mobile, but cannot be moved by muscle power alone. Therefore, the “component parts” should be covered by the Missouri lemon law.

Although the Missouri lemon law excludes off-road vehicles, mopeds, and motorcycles, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act may still apply.
