The Lemon Law states that there is a useage fee the consumer has to pay for a repurchase or a replacement vehicle. "Whether you bought or leased the vehicle, a replacement would be identical or reasonably equivalent to your
present vehicle. You would be responsible for paying the manufacturer a deduction (offset) for use, based on a
formula that includes the miles you put on the vehicle up until the time you made the request to the
manufacturer. [(Miles purchase price) 100,000]
A refund to you for a vehicle you leased would include:
 Your down payment or any initial balloon payment;
 The amount allowed for any trade-in; and
 Incidental costs associated with the repair of the vehicle, such as towing, alternate transportation or
repair charges.
A refund for a vehicle you bought would include:
The purchase price (the amount you agreed to pay before taxes were added and any trade-in value or
down payment subtracted);
Collateral charges (including but not limited to sales tax and other government charges, dealer charges,
dealer-installed items, extended warranty, and all interest you paid on any loan from a lending
institution); and
Incidental costs associated with repairing the vehicle, such as towing, alternate transportation or repair
Minus a deduction or offset for the miles you put on the vehicle, up until the time of your request that
the manufacturer buy back the vehicle. [(Miles purchase price) 100,000]."
