Lemon Law

Lemon Law is law, which is made by the American government in order to compensate for the buyers of the automobiles that repeatedly fall short to meet the standards of quality and performance. These vehicles are called lemons, automobiles in US have various rights of both federal, and state law as these comes with a warranty. The law comprises all such possessions like new car, truck, motorcycle or motor home you buy or lease, even if you schedule the vehicle in another state. It comes under the Consumer Warranty Act as if an automobile purchased by a buyer does not work properly he can return it to the dealer.

Lemon laws cover only considerable defects, meaning defects that significantly impair the use, value, or safety of the vehicle. If a defect is safety related, the manufacturer is usually allowed just one chance to fix it before the owner may invoke the lemon law; if a defect impairs the use or value of a vehicle, the manufacturer is usually permitted three or four attempts to repair it. Lemon laws allow customers to return a defective car if certain criteria are met. Its very difficult to persuade the manufacturer to accept the lemon law return, and often the issue will end up as a lemon lawsuit. Minor car trouble is a normal part of owning a vehicle, especially if the owner tends to neglect regular check-ups such as oil-changes and tune-ups. While minor car trouble such as a flat tire or over-heating may be considered a normal part of owning a vehicle, excessive car trouble is altogether different. Although different for each state, most lemon.

A consumer may also invoke the law if a vehicle is out of service for a certain number of days because of any combination of substantial defects. Paint defects, rattles, cosmetic flaws, jumpy suspensions, premature wear of the tires and the like are not normally considered substantial defects. Lemon laws usually provide consumer protection for owners of new cars, trucks, and vans. A significant minority of states also provide coverage for leased vehicles.
