Lemon law changes before state assembly
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - State lawmakers want to change the rights you have when you get sold a bad car.

The state Assembly is poised to vote on changes to the state's lemon law.

It covers when consumers can sue auto manufacturers.

The bill up for a vote today removes the ability to receive double damages.

It also changes the deadline for bringing a lawsuit from six years after purchasing a faulty vehicle to three years.

While the Republican-sponsored measure tightens current law, it doesn't go as far as originally proposed.

The bill is backed by the state's largest business lobbying group.

It's also supported by General Motors and a coalition of vehicle manufacturers and dealers.
