What Is The Lemon Law?


What exactly is the Lemon Law? The Federal Government passed a Lemon Law in 1975 and since that time every state in this country has passed their own. These laws were created to protect buyers in cases where vehicle manufacturers failed to deliver on the promises they made to you. Whenever you buy a new, and in some states a used vehicle, the manufacturer makes certain promises to you (the warranty) pertaining to the quality of vehicle. If a car is continually in the shop for repairs, the statute protects you and can even require that the maker of the vehicle provide you with a replacement car, a cash payment, or even allow you to return the vehicle with no penalty.

Does the Lemon Law Only Apply to Cars?

The Dealer is not a Lawyer

So you brought your car into the dealership for repairs yet again and when you mentioned to the service manager that you think it might be a lemon, he told you that your vehicle does not qualify. What you need to know is that his job is to try and fix your car and make you happy with what the dealership sold you. He is not an attorney and doesn’t have the experience to advise you on this matter. Only a qualified Lemon Law attorney such as those at Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center® can tell you whether you have a valid claim or not. Visit www.yourlemonlawrights.com for more details.
