The Lemon Law


What is the history of The Lemon Law?

The federal lemon law was passed by Congress in 1975 and applies to all goods, including cars, which come with a written warranty and cost more than $25 dollars. Under this federal lemon law, the warrantor is required to repair your car within a reasonable time. This can be as few as two or three repair attempts. If your car is deemed a lemon under the federal lemon law, you may be entitled to a refund, a replacement car, or a substantial cash payment depending upon the written warranty you were provided with when you purchased your lemon car.

The Lemon Law covers cars that have had repairs completed while covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.  Every state has enacted a lemon law.

Sometimes referred to as the Federal Lemon Law, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act can help you to recover damages related to your lemon vehicle.
