Lemon Laws protect new passenger vehicles. Lemon laws vary from state to state. Check with your state to find out your rights if you have a defective vehicle.

Basically, lemon laws allow customers to return a defective car if certain criteria are met. It’s very difficult to persuade the manufacturer to accept the lemon law return, and often the issue will end up as a lemon lawsuit.

Although different for each state, most lemon laws state that a new car may be returned to the manufacturer for a refund or a replacement if warranty defects are not able to be repaired. Most lemon laws also apply to used cars that are still under full warranty and that meet the mileage and time requirements. A lemon law attorney can help advise you of your rights.
