Thanks for your patience. The answer to your question is yes, there is a lemon law in the state of utah.

According to the UT DMV:

Utah’s “Lemon Law” requires that if a new vehicle is replaced or repurchased by a manufacturer due to an alleged “nonconformity,” that the Utah title be stamped with a “brand” stating “MANUFACTURER BUYBACK NONCONFORMING VEHICLE.” Utah law defines a nonconformity as:

“a defect, malfunction, or condition that fails to conform to the express warranty, or substantially impairs the use, safety, or value of a motor vehicle.” (UCA §41-3-407)

I could bore you with all the details, but the BBB has come up with some information which could help you analyze your situation. If you click here, you can find more information. What other questions did you have for me?
