Tonight's post I'm going to talking a little bit about the Auto Lemon Law. Here's a quick explanation about Lemon Law's from Wikipedia:
Lemon laws are American state laws that provide a remedy for purchasers of cars in order to compensate for cars that repeatedly fail to meet standards of quality and performance. These cars are called lemons. The federal lemon law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) protects citizens of all states. State lemon laws vary by state and may not necessarily cover used or leased cars. The rights afforded to consumers by lemon laws may exceed the warranties expressed in purchase contracts. Lemon law is the common nickname for these laws, but each state has different names for the laws and acts.
For a car to considered a lemon it must meet the following criteria:
- A new vehicle - no more than a year old and still under warranty - is a "lemon" if
- It has a serious defect the dealer can't fix in four tries, or
- It has one or many defects that prevent you from using it for 30 days or more (the 30 days need not be consecutive)
Here are a few lemon law ads:
