What Is The Lemon Law?


When a consumer buys or leases a New, Used or Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle that is sold with any portion of a manufacturer's warranty still covering that vehicle, and the vehicle has a defect or malfunction that substantially affects the vehicle's use, value or safety, then Lemon Law offers protection to the buyer by offering legal remedies to have the defective vehicle repurchased or replaced if the manufacturer or dealership cannot repair the vehicle's malfunction or defect within a reasonable number of repair attempts.

In addition to the California Lemon Law, consumer's have the additional protection of the Federal Lemon Law to ensure that their rights are protected against defective Lemon Vehicles.
