Lemon Law

Lemon laws are a special type of warranty law that specifically protects the buyers of both new and used cars. When a car is sold, it is expected that the car will be fit for sale and will function as reasonably be expected. If the car breaks down shortly after sale, the buyer has the right to expect that he or she will be protected under the law. Lemon laws allow a buyer to collect damages and, if the circumstances warrant, to return the vehicle for full satisfaction. To learn more about how these special warranty laws work, what the requirements are for proving your car is a lemon and what types of legal remedies you can expect based on a claim, refer to the content in this section.
