New “lemon law” would protect bike buyers
HARRISBURG, Penn. (BIKER DAD)–A new “lemon law” would protect bike buyers in Pennsylvania. Democrats in the State House announced the chamber approved the bill. “Motorcycles are significant investments, and if you purchase or lease a new motorcycle and defects are affecting its safety, value or use, the manufacturer should fix it,” said Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington. “I’m pleased my colleagues support this fair and commonsense measure.”
The bill adds motorcycles to the states “lemon law” which requires manufacturers to fix any defect substantially impairing its use. The state’s law has been in effect since 1984. It currently doesn’t include bikes.
