Definition of a Lemon

A lemon is typically a vehicle or consumer product that has a significant defect covered by a warranty and remains unrepairable after a reasonable number of attempts.

Reasonable Repair Attempts

The law often stipulates what constitutes a reasonable number of repair attempts. For vehicles, this might be a specific number of attempts to fix the same defect or a cumulative number of days the vehicle is out of service due to repairs

The 3 R's

The consumer may be entitled to a repair, replacement, or refund if a product is deemed a lemon. This often includes the cost of the vehicle, taxes, registration fees, and any other consequential expenses.

Federal Lemon Law - Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

In addition to state laws, the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act also provides protection, ensuring that consumers can enforce their warranty rights.

Arbitration and Legal Action

Some lemon laws require consumers to go through an arbitration process before filing a lawsuit. Others allow direct legal action against the manufacturer or dealer.

How Do I Know I Have a Valid Lemon Law Claim?

✅ Warranty Period: The defect must have first appeared while the vehicle was still under the manufacturer’s warranty.

✅ Reasonable Repair Attempts: You must have given the manufacturer or dealer a reasonable number of attempts to fix the defect.

✅ Substantial Impairment: The defect must substantially impair the vehicle’s use, value, or safety.

✅ Duration of Repairs: The vehicle must have been out of service for repairs for a significant amount of time, often defined by specific state laws.

Are State Lemon Laws All The Same?

State Lemon Laws are not all the same; they vary significantly from state to state. 

🍋 Coverage Scope: While all 50 states have lemon laws for new cars, only a few states extend these protections to used cars.

🍋 Eligibility Criteria: The criteria for what constitutes a lemon, such as the number of repair attempts or the number of days the vehicle is out of service, differ across states.

🍋 Remedies Offered: The type of compensation (replacement, refund, or monetary compensation) and the specifics of how it is calculated can vary.

🍋 Warranty Period: The duration of the warranty period under which a vehicle qualifies for lemon law protection is not uniform across states.

🍋 Federal vs. State Laws: In addition to state-specific lemon laws, there is a federal lemon law, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which provides a baseline of protection across the country.

🍋 Application to Leased Vehicles: Some states include leased vehicles under their lemon laws, while others do not.
