Tennessee Could Include Motorcycles Under the Lemon Law

February 25, 2010 – 2:59 pm

The Tennessee Senate approved a proposal today to include motorcycles under the Tennessee Lemon Law with a unanimous vote of 29-0. The measure, SB2649, is sponsored by Republican Sen. Tim Burchett of Knoxville and is excellent news for Tennessee consumers with motorcycle problems.

SB2649 and it’s companion measure, HB2551, sponsored by Republican Rep. Vince Dean of East Ridge would give owners of new motorcycles the same rights as those who have cars and trucks that don’t perform properly.

In Dean’s words, “On a car, a bent frame may just make it wobble or something. But on a motorcycle a bent frame can cause an accident very easily.”
