House passes bill to help protect motorcyclists’ investments

Measure would add motorcycles to PA Lemon Law

HARRISBURG, June 24 – The PA House unanimously approved state Rep. Pam Snyder’s legislation that would cover motorcycles under Pennsylvania’s Automobile Lemon Law.

“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 Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington. “I’m pleased my colleagues support this fair and commonsense measure.”

House Bill 69 would include motorcycles in the definition of a new motor vehicle in the Lemon Law, requiring manufacturers to fix any defect substantially impairing its use.

The measure now heads to the Senate for further action.
