OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Legislation that strengthens consumer protection guidelines for Oklahomans who buy defective cars and trucks has passed the Oklahoma House.

The state House voted 97-2 Tuesday to send the measure to the state Senate for a vote.

Among other things, the bill would give consumers the choice of a refund or replacement of a defective vehicle. Currently, the choice of reimbursement or replacement is at the discretion of the dealer.

It also places a standard in state law for a dealer's charge for mileage on a defective vehicle and prohibits a dealer from charging for mileage if the lemon is simply replaced by the dealer.

It also requires the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office, the Oklahoma Tax Commission and auto dealers to label, tag and register lemon vehicles.
